ATLANTA, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Get ahead of National Eat Outside Day, celebrated on Friday, August 31, 2018, with tips from the experts at ChoiceDek® composite decking from Oldcastle APG, to get the most out of al fresco dining–with the least amount of worry or effort.

"National Eat Outside Day is the perfect excuse to bring people together for an outdoor dinner that this year can serve as a prelude to Labor Day weekend, as we bid farewell to summer days," says Josh Landis, Sr. Marketing Manager for ChoiceDek composite decking. "ChoiceDek features decking that relies on technology to reduce maintenance and take the worry out of enjoying life outdoors, while also serving as a beautiful backdrop for easy, stress-free entertaining."

The following tips make it easy to host a fun, worry-free National Eat Outside Day dining experience:

1.    Provide comfortable seating but don't worry much about matching sets. The same is true for dishware – party store disposables or mix-and-match sets all work well in a relaxed outdoor setting.

2.    Set up food stations and seating in different areas of the deck and yard to encourage guests to mingle outdoors, so you can visit with your guests and they can get to know each other. Transition into evening with garden poles attached to deck rails to string dollar store lantern lights or white holidays lights for added décor—or string them around awnings and umbrellas.

3.    Guarantee a stress-free party by simplifying the menu: pot lucks encourage guests to bring a dish. Or, grab a variety of sandwich trays and prepared foods from your favorite deli. Grill masters can keep it simple with basic proteins (chicken, burgers, dogs). Have seasonings and a condiment station handy for guests to personalize the final dish with onions, avocados, relish, lettuce and tomatoes. Fill large coolers or a kid's inflatable raft with ice to keep perishable foods safe and to save fridge space.

4.    Rather than a full-stocked bar, set out and label coolers with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink choices near a table with a few mixers and basic summer coolers. Set out cups and small buckets of ice for drinks.

5.    Make cleanup easy with conveniently-located garbage and recycling bins with sturdy contractor bags so you don't have to bus tables

It's easy to take a cue from the laid-back vibe of your deck to simplify the effort you put into a party and get the most out of time with friends and family, whether for National Eat Outside Day or any day of the year.
