Despite a handful of thunderstorms, May is the perfect month to begin the outdoor entertaining season. If you haven’t noticed, SampleHouse believes in making all spaces as bright and beautiful as possible, and that includes outdoor spaces. We have a huge array of signs, table decor, gardening accessories and more that are all weatherproof and perfect for your backyard haven.
Recently, we told you about Bryan, our SampleHouse BBQ expert. Bryan loves to grill and is quite the skilled pitmaster. Unsurprisingly, Bryan has built himself a backyard smoke shack fit for a king. For inspiration, here’s a picture of Bryan’s setup, complete with some sweet SampleHouse swag! With a little elbow grease and some time spent roaming the selection at SampleHouse you can have your very own palace of all things smoked and grilled.
The backyard is usually the last place in the home to get decorated, since the unpredictable Texas weather can sometimes ruin all that hard work in a matter of minutes. But picking a few sturdy pieces and spending some time swinging a hammer will ensure that your effort will hold fast during one of those windy spring storms. Many of our signs also have a twine cord for hanging, so they can be moved around or even brought inside in a matter of seconds. Here are just a few of our signs that definitely belong in your backyard.
Decorating your outdoor space isn’t just about form—it’s about function, too. In Texas, everything really is bigger, which unfortunately applies to the bugs. Especially the winged ones. We want you to have fun and stay safe, which is why we think all outdoor spaces, regardless of size, should include the Patio Egg mosquito deterrent diffuser. This tiny, stylish egg packs a lot of mosquito-repelling power. Keep your friends and family safe this summer by adding a Patio Egg to your outdoor decor.
Of course, entertaining outdoors is a lot easier if you have something delicious to show for it. Make sure you know what you’re doing before you fire up the grill by picking up one of our favorite cookbooks. With recipes and tips on everything from grilling the perfect burger to whipping up some watermelon mojitos, we have a book to suit your needs. Brush up on the classics and experiment with a few new things this year to take your backyard barbecue game to the max!
Stop in to pick Bryan’s brain, and we’ll make sure to set you up with all these things and more. From planters and colorful pots to garden signs and weatherproof pillows, we have everything you need to have the best summer ever, right in your own backyard.
