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.

French Bistro Chairs in our Kitchen



When we posted some pictures earlier this week of the flowers on the table we got quite a few questions about our new chairs. I am so excited about them. I have eyed this style chair for a while now but the ones I had seen were always kind of lightweight and the backs were often pretty low and I knew neither of those elements would be ideal for us seeing how we regularly have people over and a lot of our guests are quite tall. A month or so ago we were contacted by Arhaus about working together with them on a few posts. I was thrilled. They are one of my favorite stores. I love walking around and admiring all of their gorgeous furniture, lighting and accessories. I love the somewhat dark, masculine feel that the stores have yet the pieces often still have a very elegant feel to them. I was thrilled when I  spotted these chairs. They had the look I was going for but the backs were higher and they have added weight to the bottom to they feel like they have substance and don't feel too lightweight. I especially love the vintage look and finish of the gray color. They are designed after a 1930's French Bistro chair which was fun because the girls are pretty fascinated with all things Paris lately.























Honestly, the only problem with the chairs is that I like them so much I want to use them on the porch too. Haha! I tried them out their one evening but then missed them too much inside so I ended up moving them back in, although I did love them out on the porch too! I should have more images of this space next week.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
