My family is extremely social, so we're always inviting people over and attending get-togethers at friends' and family members' houses. We like the community and the chance to unwind, but when we host the festivities at our home, the stress sometimes eliminates half the fun.
We realized one day that entertaining would be easier if we could take the party outside—where spills and other shenanigans wouldn't have much of an impact. To make it happen, we designed out own outdoor living space, complete with fire pit, kitchen, seating, and surfaces.
It was an informative adventure, and I'd like to use this blog to share what we learned during the process.
