Your outdoor dining room is just the opposite of most indoor dining rooms. Everything from the furniture to the food we eat is less formal outside.
The outdoor dining room is meant for you to have fun. When you are in the backyard dining room you and the kids have some friends over, you play your favorite tunes, throw a ball, play horseshoes and everyone reconnects in the warm weather while enjoying the stars.
Your outdoor dining room’s dinner table doesn’t have a chandelier overhead so it needs to have some sort of light on or around it so you can see what you are eating. While you may love Uncle Joe’s barbequed food, it would be great to know if you are eating a hot dog or a sausage.
Candles work fine but they are a fire hazard and they get really hot. Curious children have been burned by them and in some areas of the country open flames are banned during times of very dry weather.
