The Summer of Summer

2012 June 6

The weather has taken a serious turn around these parts lately and the days are feeling longer and more limber. Skater hubs and I have dubbed this “the summer of summer.” Meaning? Lots of trips to the pool, plenty of backyard BBQs, long days by the beach, impromptu ice cream outings…and of course, doing it all in style.

Here are some fun summer home accessories I have my eye on (from top left):

Bicycle glasses. I love these for serving anything from ice cold beers to ice cold milk.

Why not dress up the walls of your backyard like you do your living room? This Circuit Wall Candleholder does double duty as a lighting fixture and a cool piece of outdoor art.

Who says you can’t get fancy over a dinner of burgers and fries? Dress up your al fresco dinner parties with this fun but sturdy candelabra.

Switch up your seasonal throw pillows for an instant dash of personality. Pink flamingos just scream summer, don’t you think?

I told you there would be lots of ice cream parties around these parts. These bright scoops add a little sprinkle of cool.

It’s not a party without the right soundtrack. This retro-chic portable speaker makes it easy to tune in without plugging in.

I love stocking up on chic outdoor dinnerware and try to save the paper plates for big bashes or kids’ birthdays. This chevron print is trendy, tough and most importantly for this sun-drenched hostess, dishwasher-safe.

    LOVE the bicycle glasses! Those would make a great Father’s Day gift for my cycling hubby. Thanks for the idea!
