leave space for stairs someday,
Bar idea on edge of railing great for eating or for setting up buffet. Probably would want something to keep dishes from falling off...
Looks really cool, but how often would we use it?
Tidore Planters - $79.95
Love the clean lines. I wonder how heavy they are. Tidore Planters, $80 each at Crate & Barrel
Garpen Bar Table - $99
Beautiful lines, handy on the deck. Ikea Garpen $100. Black aluminum.
Altogether elegant. Love the stand alone shade and the black hurricane lamps.
Find a 95-inch umbrella at West Elm for $125; the stand is sold separately for $58. Would work on a deck without a awning.
Love the deck floor. Will the Azek take paint? Perhaps a painted canvas rug.
Hang from underside of awning using battery powered candles
Bring indoor comforts outside. Have real dishes and serving pieces, vases of fresh flowers and nice indoor cushions on the deck feel extra special. Look around your house before the party and see what you can borrow from indoors. Take Nick's bench out with cushions tied on for extra seating. Cover plastic tables with real table cloths for more elegance.
Just because the HOA controls the outside of the awning doesn't limit the underside. Try draping colored fabric underneath. See what I have or can find for summery fabric.
Love the planter with the architectural grasses. Since the view is obstructed anyway put on side with neighbors deck to camouflage the plastic "privacy fence"
