Spring + Summer Crush @ The Home Depot

Happy Friday! The long weekend is only a few short hours away and lucky me, I am already up at my favourite Bed&Breakfast enjoying the beautiful sunshine and seasonally warm weather.  Today's activities include a short hike along the Bruce Trail, a quick visit to a small town near by for a fresh loaf of bread and organic local meat + produce for a tasty BBQ, and hot tub with wine + starry night to wrap it all up.

Speaking about enjoying the great outdoor, I was at the Home Depot spring/summer preview a few weeks ago and was in love with their fantastic outdoor collection, the variety of BBQ options that suits everyone's specific desire, and the super delicious bites.

Tight in outdoor space (especially for those who live downtown with a 50 square feet balcony), here is a cheerful option for dining for two.  Bistro style + intense shot of vibrant orange (it also comes in luxe violet and soothing emerald green), this is how we condo dwellers live large in small spaces.  

Father's Day is coming up and you all know how men are obsessed with a mean BBQ to make them feel proud.  The Home Depot team brought a few options to the preview.  From backyard party for 20 or romantic dinner for 2, the Home Depot has got you covered.  I have no gas line at my balcony and can't use charcoal due to safety concern, this little fella is powered by good old electricity and it will be Chris' BFF at our next summer party. 

This roasted peach with prosciutto recipe is my absolute favourite at the event and I would love to use the BBQ to roast my peach at the next summer party.

For this spring/summer season, the Home Depot has sourced a collection of stylish exterior rugs to help ground our outdoor space and add softness to our feet.  I am particularly fond of this creamy white & apple red beauty for its simple design with a hint of nautical flair.  Best of all, this rug is also reversible!  So when you want to switch up the look, just flip the rug over.  Yes, it is that easy!   

For those who are looking for some pretty and maintenance free pillows to freshen up your existing patio set, here is a sample of options available at the Home Depot.  Isn't this such a smart vignette to display the cushions in a wheel barrow?  Of course I am also crazy about the string lights on the staircase and the elegant chandeliers via the huge mirror.

Thanks Home Depot for having me at this fun and inspiring spring/summer preview.  I surely had a fantastic time and now for those who are planning to refresh their outdoor living space this long weekend, check out your local Home Depot and let's "Dig Into Spring"!

Happy long weekend!
