Our Editor-in-Chief, Kristina Hall, is helping you create a green and gorgeous outdoor entertaining space!
Vertical grow bags
I am loving my vertical grow bags! I’ve experimented with growing everything from mini peppers and cherry tomatoes to dill and basil to petunias and pansies!
Repurpose compostable tableware
When using disposable dishes is your only option, you can feel good about buying Repurpose plates, bowls, and more—they’re renewable, BPA free, made from plants, and compostable inindustrial composting facilities.
Outdoor entertaining doesn’t require plastic cups. These fun and modern glasses can handle a few bumps and hold any cold beverage. Plus, they’re free of BPA, BPS, and phthalates.
Quantum Buzz Away Extreme insect repellent
These sprays and wipes are DEET free, plant based, and non-greasy. They contain essential oils to make those pesky mosquitoes buzz off!
There’s nothing better than relaxing in a hanging hammock chair on the patio with a good book or magazine (ahem).
Klean Kanteen straw set
Ditch plastic straw pollution and switch to reusable straws! My faves are these straws made from stainless steel that have removable food-grade silicone tips.
To maximize patio season, you want outdoor lighting that invites guests to linger as night falls. Zig-zagging string lights overhead are a classic choice, but you’ve got other options. Channel cozy living room vibes with cordless floor or table lamps approved for outdoor use. Make your patio umbrella do double duty by choosing one with built-in LED lights. You can even buy solar-powered flower pots that are mild-mannered planters by day and softly luminous lanterns by night!
