I really like formality, proportion and symmetry, so classic wins hands down for me.

I love each of these outdoor eateries; they are all quite doable and affordable. Sometimes the inspiration is lost on me if they are too outrageous or expensive.

We eat outside when we are at our farm. When planning your area, think about insects, mozzies, and flies (also wasps) that will want to share with you at different times of the day. Factor this into the design and design yr behaviour around it. Try not to revert to spraying the environment or using insect lamps that non-distinctly kill ALL beneficial insects. (like lacewings). Remember a nice table cloth will get you a long way in terms of design. We should enjoy the fact that we can do a lot of living OUTSIDE.
