As the weather warms up, I have outdoor living on the brain. Last year we made a big addition with an outdoor couch on our covered porch (total score at Home Goods!) and installed outdoor ceiling fans as well. We love hanging out out there after dinner as the sun goes down. But we also have a great back deck that gets less use because of the bug situation. But I’m convincing myself that if I had a fabulous umbrella like these, I would be able to combat these bugs more effectively (yes, I realize 1 has nothing to do with the other but I can pretty much justify anything!). And of course I love that they’re Southern made by the Warp Weft & Co out of Charleston, SC.
