Summer is just around the corner and I'm serving up some simple tips to set the proper pool scene!

Outdoor Furniture

For the outdoors, I default to a simple design, as there is already so much natural beauty to work around. I love to let the various colors and shapes of nature speak for themselves. As such, I lean towards outdoor furniture with straight, clean lines, natural textures such as wood or bamboo, or a crisp black or white finish.

Fab Suggestions!

Consider these durable outdoor fabrics for your next patio set. Add some glamour with a pattern, or keep it solid classic.

Poolside Entertainment

I like to dress the pool area with a minimal decor and soft palette to allow the colors of the water and nature stand out. There are fun ways to incorporate more of a personal touch, for example your dinnerware and accessories. The added touches are what separates the experience from just another summer day.Think about festive ways to dress the table or bar for your next pool party.

Cucumber Cleanse

Is there anything better than laying poolside in a fabulous setting with a cocktail in hand? My favorite cocktail is fused with cucumber and aloe vera, making it the perfect poolside refreshment. 

Muddle cucumber and simple syrup. Add other ingredients and shake well. Strain and serve in a cocktail glass! Garnish with a cucumber slice and viola.

1.5 oz. Henrick's Gin

2 oz. Aloe Vera Juice

.5 oz. Simple Syrup

3 Slices Cucumber

Squeeze of Fresh Lime



Memorial day weekend is just around the corner, time to get the pool covers off and splash right into Summer!

Until Next Time,
