Outdoor Living: The Extra Room

Outdoor Living: The Extra Room

Our new place has an eat-in kitchen, which we love, but no dining room. Although we prefer cocktail parties to sit-down dinner parties, it's nice to cook for a group sometimes. We were a little sad to lose our dining room until we realized we had an extra room just waiting to be transformed: our deck! We'll only be able to use it half the year, but it's big enough for a decent-sized dinner party...

We've been thinking about how we'll decorate our new seasonal dining room, hence our many posts on outdoor chairs (here and here). Add a nice table, some outdoor lighting, and some colorful accessories and we're set for summer.

To those of you who have decks, patios, or yards: How do you use your outdoor rooms?
