Spring is finally here and with it comes the beautiful weather, sunny days, and outdoor glory. After a frigid winter which we stayed indoors, we can finally celebrate with fun picnics, barbecues, and outdoor gatherings.

Picnics are easy to prepare when you bring cold sandwiches, cut up fruit and vegetables, and some drinks. Pack it all in a picnic basket and head to the nearest park or have a picnic in your backyard.

Barbecues are also a great outdoor option. Especially when the weather gets quite hot and it gets hard  to cook in the kitchen, we welcome the change of a quick and hearty meal cooked outdoors. Marinated meats, chicken, vegetables, and fish can be prepared in a tasty way. Helpful items such as tongs, spatulas, oven mitts, and outdoor server-ware help in serving the food in a proper way. Stylish oven mitts and pot holders protect your hands from the heat in a fashionable way.

Thanksgiving is upon us and we look forward to meeting and greeting our dear ones. Here are some tips in making this great day a fantastic one:

Don’t come to the table starving. Drink a few cups of water and eat something light before the meal as well as not to overeat, overstuff, and feel bad later. Try to fill up on salads and protein so that when dessert comes around you’ll have room for just a bit!


If you’re bringing kids, make sure the place is kid-friendly. Bring some crayons, coloring papers, and a toy or two for the little ones so they will be entertained and happy. A happy child makes a happy Mom!

If you’re making the meal make sure to have a variety of foods to please everyones taste. Fresh herbs add a tremendous amount of flavor to make the dish an outstanding one.


If someone has allergies make sure the host knows before hand. It may be a good idea to bring along a dish so that you’re sure you have something to eat.

Cover the table with a tablecloth that’s easy to wipe clean such as a vinyl tablecloth. If you would like to use a pretty cloth, you may want to cover it with a clear vinyl tablecloth. With a large crowd,  spills can happen. After working so hard in the kitchen and preparing all that food you deserve to get a break in the cleanup!


Lastly, enjoy the day and enjoy your company. After working so hard you’ll want to look back on this special day and be happy that you created beautiful memories that will be cherished forever.
