You might even consider using some of these ideas the next time you have an open house. After all, who wouldn’t want to envision throwing a beautiful outdoor party at their newly purchased home?

Overhead outdoor party decorations

Instantly add bright pops of color to your outdoor party with these pretty paper lanterns. You can assemble them in a cinch and hang them with brightly colored ribbon from gazebo roofs or trees. Mix and match lantern colors to create a bold look, add light bulbs and you’ll give your outdoor party a magical glow at night.

Flower and seashell patio-chair decoration

Add a bit of color to outdoor patio furniture with this easy-to-make chair decoration made from a repurposed tin can. To make, wrap patterned fabric around the can, glue in place and let dry. Glue a starfish to the can. Cut two vertical slits near the top of the back of the can; tie can to the chair back with ribbon threaded through the slits. Place a jar of water in the can and fill with brightly colored flowers.

Etched glass vase decoration

Update a plain glass vase for an outdoor party decoration with a pretty etched design. To make, use a border punch to cut a design from adhesive shelf liner. Apply the liner to the glass vase and smooth out any air bubbles. Following the package directions, spread a thick layer of etching cream onto the vase, covering the design. Leave the cream on for the instructed amount of time and then rinse with water; embellish with a paint pen. Add some greenery and a flower, then place on your outdoor table for a fresh accent.

Flowerpot wall art

Improvise with outdoor wall art by adding suspended flowerpots to a wooden fence. Spray-paint nine terracotta pot bases in bright colors. Secure pot hangers to the fence and suspend pots from the hangers, filling each container with annuals or herbs.

Glass-bottle light fixture

Everyone will be talking about this creative light fixture! Make it yourself from recycled glass bottles. Drill four holes an equal space apart near the top edge of a galvanized-steel feed pan (available at a farm-supply store). Loop four equal lengths of braided framing wire through the holes and secure with a stainless steel quick link. Drill more holes equally spaced apart all around the side of the pan. Coming from the back, thread a plastic zip tie through a hole, wrap around a glass bottle, and thread through the next hole, tightening around the bottle and securing on the back. Continue around the pan. Finish the cool design by filling the center of the feed pan with candles and lighting them at sundown.

Robbie was amazing. He was able to get us the best sale price possible, and he was very responsive whenever we had questions or concerns during the process. I was also worried that selling would be a big headache, but Robbie and his crew made it super easy for us. We couldn’t be happier!

This is the second house Robbie has helped us sell! He is very knowledgeable and professional! Genevieve also helped us a ton with buying our new home! We are so thankful for both of them and what they have done to help our family over the past two years! Thanks Robbie and Genevieve!

Robbie exceeded our expectations; he was knowledgeable of the market trends in our area. He realized the square footage of our home in the prior appraisals was lower than the real area and that enabled us to get a better price for the home. We would highly recommend Robbie to anybody interested in selling or purchase a home.

Robbie was such a pleasure to have as my realtor. He is always patient, kind, and helpful. I'm a first-time home-buyer, so there were a lot of things I needed to learn about and a lot of complicated documents to slog through. Robbie and his team guided me smoothly through the whole process. Robbie has a lot of experience in the Albuquerque real estate market and was able to give me good advice. He always responds to calls, texts, and emails right away, never keeps you waiting. Everyone on his team, from the people in his office to his fantastic loan officer to all the inspectors he lined up for me -- they were all top-notch, professional, and really pleasant to work with.

Robbie Faithe and Jamie Cline were instrumental in our efforts to find and purchase our first home. Robbie helped strongly negotiate our position in a market that is frankly predatory and outright hostile to homebuyers, especially first-timers with little experience. He helped us move to a swift close while making sure everything was conducted soundly, promptly and with our interests at the forefront. He was supportive of us through the entire process, even after our first negotiations fell through, and was adamant about finding a house that we would truly want, not just the first home that met our loose criteria. Jamie Cline was vital in her role to assist us with booking appointments as well as keeping us apprised of all deadlines and offering advice when we desired. Overall, though this first-time homebuying experience was very stressful at times, Robbie and his team made sure there were as few impediments to the process as possible while making sure we were taken care of. I would definitely recommend their homebuying services and expertise.

Robbie is truly the best in NM. I have worked with Robbie before and once again he accomplished everything me and my family needed. He sold our house within 24 hours. I recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a house to use Robbie Faithe and his company. Thank you to the Faithe Realtor Team!!
