This is my idea of the perfect outdoor area. I have a small balcony and this would be divine at my place. The hanging lights can be bought from IKEA, they are solar lights which is so handy. I absolutely love this! With the cat!
Great way to keep drink bottles cold but not wet from melted ice. Also, a fun way to add color to the party! Use regular size balloons, fill about with tap water, freeze overnight and use in a barrel to keep your drinks cool.
