Nothing compares to a relaxing afternoon on the deck with friends and family. Here at Ready Decks, we believe you should be able to enjoy your deck year-round, not just in the summer. Check out the following ways to spend time on this space during the fall.

Carve pumpkins

Halloween is just two weeks away. So make your way over to the local pumpkin patch with the family and pick out some pumpkins. Whether you’re carving pumpkins as a family for the first time or tenth time, it’s always special.

Head out to the deck once you return home and start setting up for the carving. Pro tip: Ensure a much easier cleanup and lay down some newspaper on the deck surface beforehand. It’s also helpful if your hose can reach the deck.

Once you’re done carving, leave the pumpkins out on your deck. These new jack o’lanterns are certain to be spooktacular on Halloween night!

Have a coffee date

What’s fall without your favorite pumpkin-spiced coffee? Make plans this season to sit out on the deck with your significant other and enjoy a beverage together. Morning or night, there’s never a bad time to have a coffee date.

Roast pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds are another tasty treat to enjoy during the fall. Sure, it’s common for folks to roast pumpkin seeds in the oven. But that’s not the only way to prepare this autumn favorite.

First, collect and rinse all the of the pumpkin seeds you have. Then pat the seeds dry and toss them in a bowl with olive oil and salt. Next, spread them out flat on a baking sheet and place on the grill for about 45 minutes.

You’ll never want to cook pumpkin seeds in the oven again after trying them on the grill.

Have a barbecue

Cookouts don’t have to be reserved for the summer. Fire up the grill and cook up a feast of burgers, brats, or chicken. Add a touch of fall to your barbecue with some delicious charred corn.

Host Thanksgiving dinner

Are you planning on hosting Thanksgiving dinner again this year? If your deck is big enough and the weather permits, consider setting up outside. Just remember to have enough chairs for everyone and double-check that there is sufficient lighting to dine outdoors.
