The Screen Matters Kristine Thomason writes for HGTV.com that the screen definitely has to be considered first and foremost.

Listening for the sound of the ice cream truck, making belly-flops in the pool, catching fireflies in a jar, collecting seashells on the shore... Our childhood summers centered around the single mission of entertaining ourselves and our friends.

Just because summer is over, does not mean that the fun cannot continue!  Your sunroom provides the perfect backdrop, amid the twinkling stars and night air, to extend the feeling of summer fun right in your own home! Here are some tips to make it a hit!

Invite people to bring their swimsuits, towels, and beach balls. Decorate with inflatable toys shaped like palm trees or sharks. You could even set up wave sound effects! And remember to give your guests a place to dry off. A cool, covered area,…
