We did! We grilled steak Sunday night, and last night I reheated the leftovers and we took them outside to eat. And after dinner, while Toby played Mass Effect, I looked through picnic sets on Amazon and ordered one in the shape of a backpack with space for food as well as plates, flatware, etc. to make it easier to haul things in and out.

The crane was from a local nursery, but they're available in lots of places. I believe we have the one on the right in this Ebay listing for a pair.

We hadn't thought more about the grassy area than I've got above. I've got a book on period gardens arriving from Amazon soon, and plan to pore over that for ideas.

We used the pea gravel because we had it, but we're also a no-outside-shoes-inside house, so rocks stuck in the tread aren't as much of an issue as they'd normally be.
