Summer is here...the magazines tell us to lay back, relax, go to the beach....
well, some of us have to work and for us, the back yard garden is our summer retreat.
so in honor of those who are home, puttering away, here are a few ideas to Decorate Summer Style..
Flikr - joyeux artiste - a bird cage with herbs within..try this as a decorative deer protector for susceptible plants!
Cox and Cox - Ice White LED Tree Lights
Transform your garden into a fairytale in the evening with 250 pinlights. These are on the lovely Willowleaf Pear. Also ideal for using indoors to decorate an entire room. Love the gate.
Plow and Hearth
Hang curftains on simple tension roads around your patio or deck...Use sheers for a luminous effect.
Candle Lanterns Cox and Cox
These fire-retardant paper bags are punched with a star shaped graphic to create a soft romantic glow. Place battery tea lightsinside (weigh down with a bit of gravel in case of breeze) and line them along borders and paths or dot them all over the garden.
Find a tree stump and use as a stool or side table..You can also buy one from West Elm (above)
Use clear glass ornaments and hang them on your tree or branches in a vase.
Glass Lantern - Cox and Cox
This handsome glass lantern is a stunner - Why not hang it from your porch or place atop a wall or table? It will look great day or night.
