Summer beverages & picnics

Nothing says summer like iced tea.  Make up a gallon of sun tea and you’ll be ready for hot days in the backyard.  Keep it cool in insulated glasses, or store other beverages in this handy patio table cooler.

Breathe in the fresh air and create your own little garden oasis.  Plant some flowers.  Even if you don’t have a yard, you can create beautiful planters on the porch.  Add some magical light globes for beautiful lighting after dark.
