Neither are we!
Has sending the kids back to class dampened your summer joy? Cheer up. The school calendar doesn’t jive with the seasonal calendar, and there are still a few weeks left to soak up the sun in a fashionable outdoor setting.
Even early fall offers an impressive number of warm days that beckon to the back yard for some outdoor cooking and entertaining. And here’s where it gets fun: there’s a whole lot of options for outfitting your digs.
If you thought grill design was a fixed entity, get a load of this amazing find. The Big Green Egg turns barbecuing on its head, so to speak, by refashioning an old classic. Science and culinary experience led its architects to emulate a traditional cooking process and update it with technology that ensures a quality result.
It’s not necessarily a space hog, either. The Big Green Egg comes in sizes not so big, to pretty darn big. Pick your poison and set up a patio kitchen that will be the envy of the neighborhood. So it’s not a sleek, stylish unit. Big deal. It’s quirky, it delivers dynamic meals, and it’ll be a conversation piece.
As long as we’re turning the grilling process on its head, let’s go for broke and swap out conventional plastic patio chairs for a fashionista’s dream. This trendy pouf delivers a comfy seating experience as well as a hot look that wows guests awaiting a grilled feast.
Finally, the unavoidable early disappearance of our friend the sun marks late summer and early fall days, so be ready with some post-dusk illumination. Modeled after elegant indoor clusters, these Edison Bulb Pendants add a sense of random radiation and sensible style. Suspend them from a gazebo or covering and treat dinner guests to a lovely lighting effect.
Stretch out the relaxing ambiance of summer. Putting together a patio setup that pleases is a breeze. With any luck, that breeze won’t be a non-starter.
