I think nothing you can do short of building an enormous fence can block out the view 😉 so if I were you I wouldn’t worry about it, and spend the money on great indoor decorations instead – or on a great photographer, or a photo booth or some other entertainment, so your guests won’t even have time to look at the street.

I think you have a great idea to set up high tables on the terrace with candles. As it gets darker the street won’t be so visible either! How about some lanterns with candles hung up or put on the tables as centerpieces. Or pomanders. Or just candles.

Decorate the site; this is what you can influence. You can’t change what the street outside looks like!

I think any way that you set up small conversation areas outside will be nice – if you are set on setting up some type of screen, why not try panels of lattice – available for very little at garden and home centers.   I’m going to try to find a picture, but these panels are large and inexpensive.  They would be pretty draped with flower garlands or tulle.

I’ll pop back in if I find a pic!

I found these – available at Lowe’s and Hom Depot – If you set then up vertically, you really will block the view of unsightly surroundings…
