Let me start by saying my event this year will be a private party. Of course we will have ToTs in the front yard. There is a solid concrete walk from the gate to the front door and wide, low steps at the door. There are really no other places to trip and adequate light, so I'm not concerned.
Weather permitting, we'll be grilling for the party. I'd like to have tables outdoors. There's a concrete pad that is part of my driveway. It's large enough to park 3 vehicles, so I know I can put up a screen house or canopy and a couple of tables.
I'm concerned about the slope though. The drive itself slopes fairly steeply. There is also a sharp drop-off at the edge of the concrete. (I have photos below.) I don't want anyone to slip and fall!
My ideas so far:
*Be extra vigilant about the drive, clearing away leaves and power-washing to get rid of any moss.
*Keep the tables on the flat area and discourage anyone from going anywhere near the drop-off.
*Make a prop fence to put next to the pad to mark the edge.
