Five outdoor essentials for Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day weekend means different traditions for different people. For some it's an annual beach trip, for others it's hosting a backyard barbecue. The one unifier between all celebrations, is that everyone is outside.
When decorating, we're always told to bring the outdoors in. Plants freshen the air and makes us feel less cooped up. But there's a lot to be said about bringing the indoors out. It extends the comfort of your home past your door, so you're not "roughing it" on your own property.
These essentials will have you waxing and relaxing in comfort outside, no matter where you're spending Memorial Day Weekend!
