In my perfect world, I would create an outdoor sanctuary that promotes relaxation — where you could hold summer parties where nothing in particular is planned. The best parties take place where you can simply enjoy the exterior elements: children laughing and playing, adults enjoying life.

A few musts for my dream outdoor party space:

• A fruit tree. I remember having an apple tree growing up and can always appreciate picking fresh fruit.

• Since I'd like to hold both day and evening parties, I included both lighting and a sun shade in my plan.

• A dog house, since my dream party would be open to both people and pets.
