Hi, I'm Evette Rios here on eHow.com, and I wanted to show you guys some of the ways that I like to decorate for my outdoor shindigs using things that I have right in my yard. So to start, to create a centerpiece that's super easy, just grab a branch from a tree or a shrub you have, like this one right here, and spray paint it a cool color. Like, I painted this one red and it really, really pops. Really easy. And then, who doesn't love fresh flowers? And if you have flowers in your yard, even some weeds are pretty darn pretty. Just go ahead and cut them and put them right in bud vases right on the table. And then, to give everyone a little bit of green at their plate, I like to cut some herbs, if you have an herb garden, go ahead and cut some herbs, or you could even use some flowers and tuck them right into the napkin so everybody has got a little natural beauty at their plate. And that's it, thanks for watching. I'm Evette Rios, and check me out again on eHow.com.
