Happy Friday my fellow workweek warriors! We did it! Another 5 days down, and only 63 more until Memorial Day weekend begins. I don’t know about wherever it is that y’all live, but Philadelphia had temperatures hitting the low 70’s this week and it was absolutely glorious. Grilling season is upon us, and I’m more than ready to host some fantastic backyard barbecues and pool parties.
If you’re an amateur event planner like me, you’ve probably got an arsenal of outdoor equipment ready for the summer season. Fire pit- check, s’mores sticks- check, floating beer cooler… yes, we have one of those too. But what we didn’t have until a few summers ago was a gorgeous set of patio furniture where we could relax for a warm weather happy hour. We had outdoor dining tables and chairs, of course, but never anything of the “sofa” variety. And I can honestly say, game changer.
I’m still a little ways off from owning my own home, but a girl can still dream, right? Here’s my current wishlist, courtesy of my obvious favorite store in all the land – because right now it’s up to 20% off of outdoor living so my fantasy shopping cart total doesn’t look completely outlandish…!
Swoon. That furniture set is what dreams are made of, am I right? I know there’s no couch as I mentioned above, but the gorgeous chaise bed takes care of the comfort in the equation. Naps. For. Days. Add string lights and solid or striped pillows in shades of pool water blue, and you’ve nearly completed my outdoor oasis. All that’s missing is a giant jug of sangria and Ray LaMontagne Pandora.
If you need me this weekend, I’ll be somewhere outside – running, golfing, or drinking with my cousins on the deck during Easter dinner. We’re classy like that ; )
