Quick Outdoor Get Together

Thanks to Procter & Gamble and Lowes for sponsoring this post.

We are still currently awaiting a new deck. DIY does save you a ton of money, but with a mountain of projects that need to get done the deck has been pushed back these last couple of weeks. We are hoping to tackle it at some point this July.

While our backyard has been sort of sparse the weather has been rising and we have been spending more and and more time outside so a couple of weeks we searched our garage for spare furniture we could use for outside dining. A quick trip to the garage and we found a white plastic outdoor door table and a search of the outside area behind the garage led to some white plastic chairs.

Not chic and oh so dirty, but we figured it would work for the time being.

Thanks to the lovely people at Procter and Gambleand LowesI had the perfect thing to get my chairs spotless.

It only took a matter of seconds for the spray to work it’s magic!

Voila all clean!

After that I figured a quick outdoor get together was in order. I went into my kitchen and came out with supplies for the perfect treat!

{Is it sad or amazing that I have my kitchen stocked with S’mores supplies?}

A quick trip to my fabric classic produced a black and white gingham fabric to be used as a tablecloth. No sewing for this lady just a simple draping job. On top of the tablecloth went my S’mores supplies and goodies from my china cabinet along with a tabletop Weber grill for roasting our marshmallows!



{Caught the graham cracker thief in action!}

The whole set up including cleaning those chairs took about 15 mins and we were ready to enjoy the sun and some sweets.
