The days are getting longer and the temperatures are on the rise. That can only mean one thing in the Riordan household… al fresco dining season is here. We moved into our house in June 2019 and one thing Mike and I immediately started doing was eating outside. We’d start our mornings with coffees on the back patio (even before we had dining tables– we’d sit on the steps to the house!), I’d sneak outside with my laptop for working lunches outdoors, and then we’d have dinner outside together almost every night. On weekends, we’d invite friends over for happy hours, ordering takeout or having Mike grill dinner. After the long winter months, we’re just ready to be outdoors as much as possible.
This post is in partnership with Shutterfly, who just introduced a new way to shop and customize your outdoor space. They feature seven new products in more than 2,000 unique designs from over 150 independent Spoonflower artists, which means there is something for everyone no matter what your personal style is. In fact, I had the hardest time narrowing down which products I wanted to feature… there were so many cute options.
I went to town picking out super cute options for our outdoor dining table. I really love and appreciate all the different melamine plate options (both dinner & salad sizes). With so many designs to choose from, you can really create your dream table. I thought it was fun to mix the punchy navy stars dinner plate with the more traditional ticking stripe salad plate. And then I tied in– no pun intended– a little nautical nod with the rope design table runner and matching napkins.
I ordered a bunch of these customizable pint glasses. We love them so much I think I’m going to order even more to use as our everyday glasses. They are very sturdy and I am into the personalized touch. For this particular style, you can choose from a huge range of fonts, but there are also more designs to choose from. If you’re in need of a good housewarming gift, I was thinking how perfect these would be.
I love this summery combo!
I also picked out this fun picnic blanket. It’s genius– super cozy and functional. It’s like a fleece blanket on top and then a water-resistant bottom. It also comes with a carrying strap so you can roll it up and take it with you. I’m actually going to keep this one in my car so I always have it on hand for park visits. The water resistant bottom is KEY– and it doesn’t hurt to have such a cute design on top.
