Dedicated rooms are often best, that is a luxury few of us can afford. Having multi-functional spaces is key to bringing the inside an outside together: living rooms that turn into lounges, foyers that double as dance floors. A lot can be done once you become aware of how lighting, decoration and amenities affect the "vibe" of the space and how inside and outside can be brought together.
We love using Metro folding stainless steel tables. They are NSF certified, so you know they will keep your food safe. Stainless steel means they are easy to clean and durable. They are folding, so you can put them away when not in use. Here are some ideas you may find inspiring:
