Create An Outdoor Entertaining Area In A Small Space

If your home doesn't have a full backyard, that doesn't mean you can't host great parties outside. There are simple ways to transform your outdoor space, whether it be a small balcony, patio or rooftop, into an entertaining hot spot.

The most important thing is to choose a table that will maximize the small space. It's best to choose all weather material so it doesn't get ruined in unexpected weather. It's also a good idea to repurpose items that won't take up a lot of space but can have multiple functions. For example, turning a gardening cart into a beverage station is a great idea.
