Rain or shine, renting a tent is always a good idea for an outdoor wedding. Consider mixing both round and rectangle tables to maximize space throughout. Here, gorgeous greenery vines and illuminating bistro lights hang from the tent ceiling to bring maximum chicness to an otherwise plain space. Photo: T&K Photography
Grand Backyard With Natural Greenery
This mid-century modern home features a large backyard with pergola-covered patio, lush, detailed landscaping and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining.
Plan on enjoying time in your retreat year-round by including a fire pit or other source of warmth for the chilly seasons. Tending a cozy fire brings its own magic for unwinding after busy days. Keep the makings of s’mores on hand if that makes you happy. Tall ornamental grass clumps enclose this retreat with a living privacy fence, and pretty seasonal container gardens offer a just-right splash of color. Before adding a fire feature to your outdoor spaces, be sure to check local codes.
