Better Homes and Gardens Gives Us an Oudoor Gardens Feature
Outdoor Rooms, is a special interest publication for Better Homes and Gardens, and their theme for this summer is "Take a Vacation in Your Own Backyard." In their summer issue they provided a "Passport to Style" for creating themed backyards that are serene, have that Polynesian pop, and of course all things tropical and tiki-fied.
Here's what the editor Jane Austin McKeon had to say:
"My favorite time of year to entertain is summer. A barefoot and blue jeans sort of girl, I would much rather wave the neighbors over for a spur-of-the-moment glass of wine on the front porch or serve a picnic-style supper for my family on the deck than put a lot of planning and primping into a fancy dining room affair. Backyards cater to impromptu entertaining."
Creating your tropical backyard paradise can be an easy and sometimes just requires a few creative ideas with the right accents.
