I know, I know. It’s still freezing outside but since it’s now March, I’m already thinking about warmer weather. One of the best parts of the Spring and Summer is that I get the pleasure of spending the majority of those months outside. Sometimes I wish patio season was all year long, but thanks to the new, and very affordable collection from Loblaws home brands, I’m can bring that bright summer glow to my very own backyard. Showcasing their high quality brands, which include PC®, Tera GearTM Life at HomeTM, Everyday EssentialsTM and more, your local grocery store is now your one stop shop for all of your everyday backyard essentials. I had the pleasure of touring their showroom and so today I’m sharing with you some of my favourite outdoor design ideas for the next season!
Invest in a good patio set.
If you’re anything like me, as soon as it starts to get warmer outside I try and spend as much time as possible soaking up the sun. The key to enjoy a summer of dinning al fresco is having a great patio set. Before purchasing your new table, think about how many people you usually have over, how much sun exposure that area of your backyard gets (this will help you decide on how big of an umbrella you need) and what colour scheme you want the wood and cushions to match. Loblaws offers a variety of high quality and durable patio sets at an affordable price.
Brighten up your summer decorations.
Those grey and dreary winter days are finally gone, so why not have the decor in your backyard reflect those bright summer days as well. Accessorize your back yard with Loblaws‘ large selection of kitchenware and house ware items that are on trend and will fit perfectly into any budget. This season colour palette reflects the hues of the summer perfectly with cool and refreshing blues bringing out the water of the Great Lakes to warm corals that are reminiscent of the summer sunset.
Bring out the BBQ.
There’s nothing better than relaxing on a warm Summer weekend and grilling up something good on the barbecue. Now thanks to Loblaws, you can find an affordable backyard grill fits the size and your cooking needs. From larger grills with all the features to smaller portable barbecues on wheels to sleek smokers and more, you’ll be able to find the right equipment to keep your food hot all summer long.
Plan your party.
Add the final touches to your dream backyard decor with a great set of plates and tableware that give that pop of colour to your table scape. I’m always weary about brining anything glass outdoors out of the fear that they’ll break. So it was a dream come true to find these great plates and serving dishes made out of reusable bamboo biodegradable tableware in fun colours and prints from Loblaws. They also have a ton of beautifully designed plastic dishes that are both functional and on trend for this Spring/Summer season.
