Four Summer Vacation Essentials

They are plenty of small items that can make your stay at beach or at the park more enjoyable. It is better to shop for them before your vacation starts. These summer essentials display style and function.

Recreational Recliner

The Metro Seat by Picnic Time is a portable, recreational recliner with shoulder strap. The Metro Seat is available in 4 colors. It is color coordinated with the Metro Basket that I introduced last year. Looking similar, the Metro Melrose Bag is an insulated tote with a picnic service for four.

Colorful Dinnerware and Serving Ware

Stock bowls in punch colors to serve ice cream, cereals and cold soups. The Medium Orange, Large Green and Small Blue Birthday Party Cake Stands are currently on sale at Pottery Barn. At $29 for the set, it does not cost an arm to add a festive touch to any table.

Outdoor Changing Rooms

I love the romantic mood of pool cabanas. I think they have drama next to the pool. Do not forget to dress them up the cabanas with accessories for a party. Think about comfort first and ask a chair, baskets, bags or hooks. If the party runs until nighttime, add some safe lighting.

The multi-stripe Chesapeake Changing Cabana in is my favorite. If you prefer solids, go for the green apple or the stone fabric.

BBQ Accessories

The BBQ Carver set by Picnic Time is really cool. The white teak cutting board with a reservoir for juice run-off and removable seasoning tray create the perfect meat cutting serving area. The stainless steel knife, tong and basting brush can be stored on the hanging bag when not in use.
