Feeling cheated out of summer socialising? It didn’t feel like there were many opportunities to spend time with our friends and family in our gardens this year. The BBQ barely sizzled and the crisps were often soggy within seconds. We’ve missed out on our outdoor fun.

Let’s follow the advice of blogger Anamika Mishsa: ‘Winter is not a season, it’s a celebration.’ What a great philosophy – grab your blankets, lanterns and hot chocolate and make the most of your outside this winter. Time to plan you outdoor winter celebration!

A deck area is perfect for outdoor winter celebrations – who wants to get stuck in the mud after the latest rainfall?! Most wooden decks are treacherous this time of year – slippy, green and potentially rotten. The Husqui decking range – now in the winter sale – is durable, anti-slip and rot-free. With comfy garden furniture and lights, a deck can be transformed into the perfect stage for your outdoor winter celebration.


For additional warmth and atmosphere, consider a fire pit, outdoor wood burner or chimenea. There’s a great guide here at to help you choose.

The glow of a fire is an instant magnet and centrepiece – a must for any outdoor winter celebrations. Throw in some marshmallows for toasting and guests of all ages will have a smile on their faces as they have fun and keep warm.

Keep It Cosy

Fluffy, snuggly blankets will help your guests to layer up under the stars. Together, with the glow of a few cocktails – or something warmer like hot chocolate or spiced cider – conversation will flow. A slow cooker is great way to keep beverages piping hot and ready for your visitors. Delish have a very tempting list of festive drinks – 50 Best Winter Cocktails. Be careful, it’ll make you thirsty!

Outdoor rugs are also a great addition to help your outdoor space feel homely. The installation of a patio cover – like an awning or pergola – will also help to keep you protected from the weather.

Party Time

A hot tub is the ultimate party attraction – providing warmth and relaxation year-round. A Husqui composite deck is perfect for hot tubs as it is strong, barefoot friendly and will stay rot free despite the splashing!

Husqui cladding is brilliant for adding privacy screening around hot tubs and seating areas. It helps to provide architectural interest, protection from the wintery weather and help with noise reduction.

Embrace the Outdoors

Our gardens and outdoor spaces don’t have to be reserved just for warmer weather.

Hopefully these winter patio ideas for your home can help you to enjoy your outdoor space all year long.

Let’s make the most of winter!
