Porch And Deck Entertaining

Please, tell me if this first photo amazed you as it almost knocked my socks off!
Seriously, this view as I walked in Trees N Trends thrilled me! I was already over the top in loving springtime and this sealed it!
And that basket of yellow tulips was a big part of the socks falling off. Stubborn me! I could not decide for sure if I needed both tulip arrangements right there in front of me. Someone was telling me to get both. Wonder if that was Bob saying to get both!
So, what did I do? I stepped inside and saw the perfect wicker set for our screened in porch! I do love it; however, I’m studying this decision, too! Somehow, a longer one might be more particular for a party!
And just as the yellow cushions were out of sight, there was another love seat with beautiful orange, that once was my favorite color! Yes, y’all might recall that orange was over the top in my late 70s home! Even orange telephones…funny in our photos from those days.
This gorgeous fountain would be perfect ambience anytime! I would definitely choose it instead of an outdoor fireplace! My friends, who love the Fleur de lis surely would love it!
And then, please look at this RED! Somehow RED is my color of the year! There is no stopping me…my brain thinks red! Notice it even has room for 3 people to sit comfortably. Just now, I remembered our red cabinet that is on the porch. Wonder if the two reds would clash! The solid color cushions add appeal after years of stripes or florals on the cushions.
This is awesome, but then they all are! There are so many choices to choose from. Love the tan, too.
And then just as we were about to move on over to another area, this “whatchamacallit” jumped out and caught our attention! (BTW, just googled using my phone’s speaker to ask how to spell that one long word) It appeared to have a small topiary inside it. And then, the gold seating got my attention. Isn’t it lovely?
Do you have any thoughts on a seating selection? Is there advantage to a wider sofa other than the obvious extra space.
BTW, there is rarely a time, when I buy on the spot a purchase over a hundred dollars! Why is that? It’s how I was brought up…”sleep on it…if it’s meant to be,….”
Trees N Trends is a great store filled with many lovely things and it takes a long time to get through all the beautiful items. I am a satisfied customer and I have never been compensated by Trees N Trends.
Happy entertaining and hope you have a fun time shopping for your porch and deck!
