2. Have a garden or patio BBQ or dinner party in your backyard or snag a picnic table in the park. Here are some great table setting ideas to mull over.

3. Build a backyard movie theater. Throw down some blankets, cushions and pop some corn and you are set. Here are instructions on how to set it up.
