Target's Outdoor decor and more

Toasting to Laura’s 27th Birthday!

New Summer Products

I’m so excited that summer has finally decided to arrive here and we’re doing as much outdoor entertaining as possible while it lasts. This last weekend we had several things to celebrate so we did it in style with the help of Target and their outdoor décor.

I checked out Target’s summer catalog online and was thrilled to see all the bright colors and fun patterns! They’ve got everything we could need in summer products – from beach to poolside! We don’t have plans to travel this summer, so I was very excited about the home accessories. We’ve neglected our deck and it’s time for some sprucing up! There’s also some great picnic essentials which we could take on the road should our plans change, but they’re as useful here at home, too.

Target wanted to jump start our Big Honkin’ summer here in Seattle so they sent me a great set of summer dinnerware to get our party started!

We received a great teal serving Bowl with Bamboo Lid ($11.99), Bamboo Serving Utensils ($7.99), Strawberry Melamine Dinnerware Plates (4 @ $1.99 each), matching Strawberry Melamine Salad Plates (4 @ $1.79 each), and Strawberry Hi Ball Tumblers (4 @ $1.99). The set is bright and cheery and break-resistant so it’s perfect for outside use!

We’ve already broken in the new set with a birthday party at my mom’s for my niece and me. We share a July birthday and it was great fun getting to spend time together and enjoy a bite to eat on our new plates!

Don’t worry if our strawberry set is not your personal taste. There are plenty of other sets to choose from and you can shop online or in their stores. If you visit your local Target store, just look for the giant photos of summer items to lead the way.

How will you celebrate summer?
