One of the most common and popular Christmas traditions is the family Christmas dinner. Many people gather around a table with family and friends eating, drinking, catching up, and sharing stories. Food is such an integral part of most social gatherings.
Have you ever noticed that many of the most memorable movie scenes take place in memorable settings - New York, Paris, London, beautiful beaches, epic mountaintop views. Movie directors know the setting is an important part of making a movie memorable.
Think about how much time and money goes into creating the perfect setting for for a wedding - renting a beautiful church, hall, or outdoor venue, fresh flowers, elegant table settings, a spectacular dress. Brides-to-be know the setting is an important part of having a memorable wedding.
Christmas in Your Tampa Outdoor Living Space
The setting of a family gathering is also very important. The setting is a huge factor in whether a gathering will be enjoyable (when its comfortable, beautiful and inviting) or not so enjoyable (if it's cramped or unattractive). And its a huge factor in whether a gathering will be memorable (when the setting is memorable) or not so memorable (when the setting is in the common or boring).
Here in the Tampa Bay area we have the opportunity to have our Christmas dinner in a unique, beautiful setting that is impossible almost everywhere else in the country - outside.
Imagine your extended family visiting from New Jersey or Michigan, and being able to say, "We thought this year we would have Christmas dinner outside in the lanai." Or perhaps you'd prefer it be in an outdoor pavilion. Or a patio next to an outdoor kitchen. Or near an outdoor fireplace in case the temperature is a little chilly.
The specific details of your ideal Tampa outdoor living area may vary, but you can bet that your family from up north has never had Christmas dinner outside.
Heck, most Floridians have never had their Christmas dinner outside either. So, even if your dinner guests will all be local - or if you're having no guests at all an experiencing a small quiet Christmas dinner - it's almost guaranteed to be a unique setting and therefore a unique and memorable experience.
