What Houzz contributors are saying:
Tip: Create mood lighting. Beautiful lighting is the key to hosting an outdoor party that really wows guests. And the great thing is, it doesn't need to be expensive! Line up hurricane lamps or tiki torches along a path, scatter tea lights on tables and hang lanterns and string lights overhead. If you are concerned about fire, stick with battery-powered candles rather than the real deal.
Slatted fencing adds another layer of landscaped privacy in the outdoor seating and hot tub area. The slats and landscaping gently conceal the home from a good amount of tourists and curious strollers passing by some of the most coveted houses in the Los Angeles area — made popular by Hollywood romantic comedies like Valentine's Day and Because I Said So.
