I have a beautiful old chandelier and am replacing the lights with candles, but I haven't figured out how to hang it or where to hang it from. Any ideas?
I like the idea of a floral tablecloth
Love the cozy outdoor appeal. Great entertaining space for a long, friendly evening dinner.
like the idea of being able to do formal dining on patio or in gardens

cute. love the idea of transforming the side our our over summer like this
on a warm, breezy spring or summer day, the fabric fort would be enchanting
An outdoor pavilion is not in your cards? Create a makeshift lounge. Think of it as your summer living room. A few layered rugs, some floor pillows and a low table will do the trick.

Formal in Noe Valley
It's a "Bloodgood," beautiful and beautifully behaved. Golden in Autumn. Foliage holds red colour until late Summer. Branches are self-cleaning of dead leaves in Winter.
now "raised" beds on either side, creating both the sheltered outdoor room AND can include capped walls for sitting (visiting with a drink when entertaining). Also it shows a red Japanese maple variety with great form.
I show you this so you may get the feel of the raised planter idea. You could achieve this with the excavation for the walkway and keeping the elevation of the sides as they are. Then plant materials are layered in
