Expert Picks: 5 Items for an Easy, Fun Outdoor Get-Together
We’ve got the scoop on all of your spring and summer outdoor entertaining needs.
Now that it’s getting warmer, we’ve got barbecues, pool parties and all kinds of outdoor entertaining on our minds. Interior designer and lifestyle expert Elaine Griffin lets us in on how we can pull it all off with some of her favorite outdoor serveware picks.
Picnic Time® Adventure Wine Tote in Khaki
Griffin says this wine tote is “the perfect accessory for romantic summer evening sunset-watching. “I love that it looks like a rugged book bag and comes with a compact foldable table, making it a convenient way to have cheese with your wine.”
RSVP Endurance Stainless Steel Tablecloth Clips
Tablecloth clips are the perfect solution to keep picnic table linens in place on a gusty day. “The spring action design of these clips is so functional that they work with most tabletops,” says Griffin.
Galvanized Steel Beverage Tub
It’s a classic for good reasons: it’s durable and holds everything from ice to all kinds of drinks. “The surface is also perfect for adding party-themed decals, and the dual handles make it easy to carry,” adds Griffin.
Govino© Stemless Glasses
Glass and the great outdoors don’t exactly mix well. That’s unless you opt for these glasses made of BPA-free Tritan, which means they’re break-resistant. And the cool ergonomic thumb notch makes them easy to hold onto. It’s no wonder Griffin is a “fan of these for outdoor imbibing.”
