Hi! I didn’t know that U.S Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day … because it was the day women went to decorate graves of the fallen soldiers. Here’s a bit of more info: www.usmemorialday.org/backgrnd.html
When I think about Memorial Day, I think about families and appreciation. How important it is to appreciate every second of life that we breath, and appreciating the gift others give us being in our lives and vice versa. Since many people BBQ today surrounding themselves with family and friends, I spotted a unique furniture item that I thought would be perfect for ‘extra seating’ when needed:
So when you are having a social event (outside or indoors if you have the space) and need extra seating and eating space, who can you call? Is it SUPER bench to the rescue!!! It is a bench that turns into a table with seating. How cool is THAT?
When the table isn’t needed anymore, it can be converted back to a bench (with passberbys not knowing of it’s super power!) The design is sold at Plow & Hearth.
Want to add a bit more pizazz to your outdoor furniture? Then, add toss pillows or cushions with colors that you LOVE. Check out the variety of colors I spotted last week at the store HomeGoods (see pic with me + pillow/cushions on left).
Have a beautiful day, until our next post … HUGE Hug, Ada - Interior Decorator for the Star in You!
