Get Outside

We’ve had a few hints of warmer weather this spring, and I get so excited just knowing that more is headed our way soon.

Here in Minnesota, we cherish every moment of our warmer temps, because we wait a long time for them. Our season is shorter than many other states, but we utilize every minute of them, and get outside as much as possible.

To maximize your outdoor time this year, I’ve done some research and come across some fun new things that you NEED to add to your arsenal of spring/summer goods.

I always know it’s summertime when we start breaking out the fold away chairs. Between baseball games, outdoor concerts, and the fireworks on the 4th of July, ours get a lot of use. And this portable camp chair? Well, this is the mother of all fold away chairs. Holding up to 350 pounds, this one comes with a fold-out side table with expandable shelves that will hold books, tablet, camera, and drinks, a detachable insulated cooler and armrest with folding backpack strap system and electronics pocket, and two sturdy, built-in fabric loops on the back that will secure an umbrella or sports banner. I’m sold.

Nothing says, “summer party” like an at home tiki bar, right? This one puts me right into a beachy frame of mind.

I don’t know about you, but I like pretty things – especially while I’m entertaining. So when my friends come over, I don’t want to break out the plastic folding table to set up our serving space! That’s why I love this fold away buffet table. It’s pretty and functional at the same time!

If you’ve ever stood around in a parking lot hanging with your friends while you wait for the big game to begin, then this tailgating buffet table is for you. This guy pops up to provide shade for your cooler, and with built-in hanging organizers for cups, extra bottles and essentials, an interior shelf for snacks, utensils or dry goods, and convenient side pockets for condiments, napkins, or utensils, it makes tailgating even more fun.

What could be cooler than a cooler that turns into a table? This sucker even comes with two stools that easily detach from the underside of the table and makes dining on the go super convenient. Can’t you just picture yourself using this on the boat this summer?

With everything a couple could need for a romantic lunch or dinner out in the great outdoors, this picnic basket comes complete with utensils, plates, a waterproof blanket (because a wet backside takes away some of the romance, don’t you think?), salt and pepper shakers, napkins, wine glasses, a bottle opener, and more. You provide the food and drinks, and you’re all set!

Picnic basket for two with all the necessities included!

Anyone else looking forward to our warmer weather?!
