Here are a few ideas for recreating such an oasis at home when dining and entertaining outdoors this summer:
- The WindChaser Outdoor Misting Fan is an all-in-one package for misting and moving air.
- We really like this green-apple-colored Misting Patio Market Umbrella for shade and mist.
- Here are step-by-step instructions on how to install an all-out overhead misting system yourself from the DIY Network.
A fine mist is an economical way of cooling outdoor air: it uses a minimum amount of water and the moisture in the air cools you as you move about. Is this something that would work as a coolant for you when you're eating outdoors this summer? Or do you think it's an unnecessary frill that over-complicates simple outdoor home dining?
