Take It Outside!

In Maryland, where warm breezes blow mainly from April through October, there are always good reasons to do your entertaining outdoors.

To ensure a spectacular experience for everyone at your party or special occasion, let Beautiful Expressions create a personalized style and theme to your gathering. We specialize in providing a variety of supplies, amenities, complimentary items and amusements that suit both kids and adults.

Before you hold your event, though, you might want to think about sprucing up your landscaping. It’s a terrific way to create outdoor spaces for entertaining. Whether it's a manicured front lawn, stone-paved pathway or intricate terrain design, well-executed landscaping can upgrade your home's entire aesthetic. The right plants, flowers and shrubbery greatly enhance your yard’s color, texture and fragrance.

Not sure how to start? Here are some basics to guide you:

  1. Unity: Repetition is used to unify your design by repeating similar elements, such as plants and décor. Consistency helps by fitting different elements of a landscape together to create a common unit or theme.

  2. Balance: There are two types of balance in design: symmetrical and asymmetrical. In symmetrical balance, two sides of the landscape are identical while in asymmetrical balance, the landscape composition is balanced using different elements and objects which have almost similar imaginary weight.

  3. Contrast and Harmony: Contrast helps highlight certain elements in your design, while harmony helps elements in a landscape composition look unified. Contrasting elements draw the viewer’s attention when they’re placed next to each other.

  4. Color: Color gives your landscape design the dimension of real life. Consider the look you want: warm colors (such as reds and oranges) or cool colors (such as blues and greens) to create impact and perspective.

  5. Lines: As the most important element in landscape design, lines are used in just about every way. Lines can create flower beds, define entryways, designate walkways, give texture and lend perspective. Lines are also used to offer an illusion of depth and distance.
