Summer evokes relaxing getaways with family and friends. While not everyone can afford out-of-town vacations, it’s easy to enjoy the refreshing ambiance of the season right in the comfort of the home.
Accentuate your porch
Summer is all about an inviting entryway for outdoor tea time or al fresco dining. Accessorize your porch with potted artificial palm trees in a corner or beside a porch swing or day bed. Plant some cactus in pots and make a terrarium in an aquarium bowl to decorate the porch table. Hang a wreath with bright flowers on the door.
