Lemonade on Our Spring Porch

The warmer weather is finally here and we've been able to eat outside again! I love being able to eat on the porch whether it's just us as a family or when we have a whole group of people over. In the winter when we have large groups over for dinner we tend to keep all of the waters and sodas and stuff to drink in our kitchen set out on the peninsula but that can make things pretty crowded. It frees up so much more space when we can set the drinks up outside and leave the porch doors open to the kitchen. We got some fun accessories this year from HomeGoods to help freshen up the space. We added a table runner with blue stripes and some navy pillows with some rope detail. And then we got some new trays, an ice container and some big buckets that we filled with ice to help keep the soda cold. 

We put lemonade and some sodas out on this table and then over on another table (not pictured) we had some other kinds of soda and waters. I played around with using our new Arhaus chairs out here on the porch (which is why they are in a couple of the pictures) and loved how they looked but ultimately ended up keeping them in the kitchen.

  1. I am so drooling over those metal chairs from Arhuas! They are fantastic. I went to the website and I see that they are on sale, too. I am desperately wondering how I can come up with a few hundred dollars to purchase four. They would look perfect in my eating area. BTW, your porch looks fabulous and very relaxing. Great job!

  4. Wish we could pop over for a glass of lemonade! :) xoxo

  5. Lovely, just like everything you do. Would you have the source for the light string. They would be perfect for my porch also. Thanks, Cheryl
