Relax in Style

Grab a book and a tall glass of iced tea, and head outdoors to relax in style.  These outdoor rooms are so inviting for a party of one or a festive block party.   Just like the rooms inside, the exterior of your home conveys personality so be creative. You can transform outdoor space from blah to breathtaking with cozy seating arrangements, beautiful floral boutquets, lighting, and more. Every great party must have music. You can choose vintage radio, CDs, iPod playlists, or internet radio.  Be sure that there is enough comfy seating for friends and family, and that it is durable.  It ain't party without food, so fire up the grill and get cooking  Try out some recipe or have a neighborhood potluck BBQ.  Decorate the tables with vibrant color tableware and display candles and tin cans filled with flowers (keep it simple and inexpensive).   A giant umbrella shields party guests from the blazing afternoon sun, and hanging lanterns will illuminate the table come nightfall. Mix citronella candles with other colorful tea lights to keep away pests.  The most important thing to remember is to have fun, relax, and enjoy your outdoor space.
