:: 3 Quick Tips For Backyard Cooking ::

Standard

Nautical backyard with fresh air kitchen spaceIt’s time to clean up the grill and get it ready for BBQ season! It’s the perfect weather to be outside grilling and spending time in the backyard. Make sure you’re backyard is ready for you and the summer season ahead. If it’s not we’ve got 3 quick tips to help you get your backyard space ready. 1. Get Grillin’ First things first, make sure the grill is ready to go. Over the winter the grill wasn’t getting too much use, or any at all, so it’s going to need a quick clean. Dust off the cobwebs, clean off the dirt and fill up the propane tank. Now when that perfect warm evening comes along you can hit the grill and enjoy a nice dinner in the backyard. 2. Cover Up It gets a little hot out when the sun is coming down on you so make sure you’ve got some shade to retreat to. We’re talking about a big umbrella, an awning or a deck covering. However you get your shade, you’re going to be thankful you’re standing in it enjoying a cold, crisp lemonade. 3. Table Space One thing you can never have enough of in the backyard is table space. It’s especially useful when it comes to cooking. Get yourself a table that can handle the load and provide enough space not only for cooking and food, but for guests as well.

:: Cover Up That Table! ::

Since you don’t see any bronzed bodies in this post, it’s safe to say that we’re focusing on the latter of the two. The hot heat carries throughout the day and doesn’t really start to cool down until night time which creates the perfect temperatures for a family dinner in the backyard. Cue the tablecloths and table runners! They are the perfect addition to any backyard dining or mid day picnic. They bring fun colors or patterns as well as a nice cover up for that weathered table that’s been fighting the elements. Check out some these tablecloths and table runners below to see what you can do in your backyard this outdoor season!

Maybe the summer traffic, but we don’t know anyone who gets exited about traffic. We feel so lucky and fortunate to live here, we wish everyone could live in an amazing place like Laguna. One thing that we’re blessed with is the weather. And lately, the weather has been amazing. It doesn’t take much convincing from the clear blue skies and shining sun to get us to go outside.
