We'll be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this spring and will be throwing a big party in our back yard, how can we spruce things up back there while at the same time adding additional seating.

How exciting! Creating an outdoor room regardless of space or budget is easy to do with a portable gazebo, pergola and plantings. Instead of traditional walls that separate space indoors, living walls made of vines on trellises, hedges or trees can define your outdoor rooms. Outdoor fabric panels can be used to define certain areas and also provide shade and privacy. Consider a gazebo or retractable awning for outside coverage.

Decorate according to the ambiance you want to create. Lighting, furnishings and fabrics all provide a graceful transition between your indoor and outdoor living space. Remember that all your outdoor furnishings don't have to match. An outdoor dining area can be so much more than a matching table and patio chairs ? add outdoor storage, counter space or an outdoor refrigerator. You'll find so many affordable options at The Home Depot.
