Weekly Spotlight: Web Exclusive Outdoor Furniture

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

That’s right – we’ve added more decor to our selection of Web Exclusives. And more specifically, to our selection of exclusive outdoor furniture. Take a look below.

Eucalyptus Serving Cart With Tray

Slatted Benches | Outdoor Serving Cart

These pieces are all crafted from eco-friendly, sustainably harvested Eucalyptus Grandis wood and finished with a natural oil finish. This makes them durable for use during the spring, summer and fall, and beautiful enough to enhance the natural, decorative value of your outdoor spaces.

The multi-purpose Serving Cart can be stationed on a patio or porch to hold drinks for a garden party or snacks and condiments during a barbecue. It’s also perfect for wheeling around your garden as you landscape or do some additional planting throughout the seasons.

Each bench offers an outdoor seating option; all you have to do is choose between the straight design or curved design. You can see more ways to orient the curved bench here.

Weekly Spotlight: BBQ Month

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

48" Teak Dining TableBlue Ruffle Melamine Dinner Plate SetWelcome to May! This month offers so much as a transition from spring to summer here in Maine: warm weather, the occasional rain shower, trees and flowers beginning to bloom, and National Barbecue Month – a delicious thing to celebrate. Here are five essentials that will keep your barbecues well stocked, organized and enjoyable for you and your guests.

Wrought Iron Paper Towel Holders

An outdoor dining table is a great place to gather around and enjoy food cooked on the grill. Our Teak Dining Table is perfect for withstanding seasonal weather and is made to fit a table umbrella for adding shade on the sunnier days.

When it’s time to eat, forego the paper plates and opt for these Melamine Dinner Plates instead. Their durability and style are unmatched, giving you dinnerware that can be brought outdoors and a stylish accent for your outdoor barbecue.

Round Enamel Tub

Keep paper towels near by for clean up without worrying about a strong gust of wind carrying them away with a Wrought Iron Paper Towel Holder. The variety of designs fit your party theme or style preferences.

Beverage Dispenser with Chalkboard Label & StandYou’ve got the food prep down packed, leaving plenty of opportunity to get all your beverage choices up to snuff.

A Round Enamel Tub offers your guests convenience when filled with ice and drinks, and a Beverage Dispenser with a stand and chalkboard enhances the personal charm of your spread.

With these elements in place, other additions like decorations and furnishings can be instituted to create the best space for your barbecues in May and the duration of summer.

Check out our food ideas for barbecues throughout the blog, like the BBQ Chicken Crescent Ring, and share your favorite barbecue dishes and decor in the comments below. Happy National Barbecue Month!
