Garden Style: Entertaining

Broadcasting the week of 09-10-12
This episode of P. Allen Smith's Garden Style is all about entertaining. Whether it's a large group, a small group, or just having fun with some of the little ones in your family. We'll head up to Loco Ropes and swing through the trees on a zip line and see ideas on creating a fun table setting for a small group of people and a really large group, as well. Plus, we'll visit an outdoor living area that's perfect for a spring or summer gathering. There’s a great raspberry tea recipe to share, and, as always, we've got a viewer question to answer.
