Graduation season is in full swing. And for many parents, that means it’s time to prepare your outdoor deck for friends and family to gather and honor your recent high school graduate.
To get your deck ready for graduation fun and festivities, here are a few outdoor deck ideas from UglyDeck.com:
Scrub: Before you even send out the invitations, give your deck a thorough cleaning to remove dust, cobwebs, and mildew. This is also a great way to inspect your deck for loose screws, boards, or deck railings.
Stain: When you know there’s a few days of dry weather ahead of you, apply an even coat of deck sealer to the entire surface of the deck, as well as the deck railings. Make sure you allow your outdoor deck enough time to dry before putting furniture on it.
Illuminate: Install attractive lighting features onto your deck to improve its appearance and safety. There’s many creative ways to do this, such as using outdoor Edison string lights, candles, torches, and more. Looking for more outdoor deck ideas for lighting?

Color: Incorporating colorful umbrellas, tables, chairs, or pillows is an easy way to stylize your outdoor living space. And it’s an even better way to decorate for a graduation party on a budget. Using high school colors for napkins, plates, table covers, and more will allow you to creatively theme the party and also show some school spirit.
