The Hair-raising High-wire Walk: Encourage partygoers to imagine they're far up in the air as they navigate this narrow beam. An umbrella adds an authentic aerialist touch and may help with balance (just be sure to keep others at a safe distance to prevent umbrella- spoke pokes). For extra fun, place a dime on the far end, which the high-wire walker may keep if she retrieves it and returns to the starting point without tumbling off.
Pergolas over a portion of an outdoor living space provide relief from the sun and provide architectural interest and ambience to an otherwise bland, open space. Stoning columns up to counter height enhances the space further by adding additional textures and helps frame the space.
