People say that it rains all the time in Seattle. Of course, most of those people have no idea since they’re not from Seattle. Indeed, it does rain a lot, but more often then not, it’s a gray drizzling. Umbrellas are a necessity in Seattle and throughout much of Western Washington. Many marketing experts suggest using marketing materials that double as useful every-day items.
In Seattle, promotional umbrellas are a great way to get the word out about your business. Putting your company’s message on an umbrella is akin to putting it on a billboard. People are assured to see the message and potentially buy your services or products. It’s never too late to increase the marketing for your business, in fact if a promotional umbrella is going to make you stand out from competitors, then why not? You need to make sure that you use outdoor umbrella stands to keep your umbrella up right.
Entertaining friends and family is something that brings me great pleasure. Seeing everyone smiling and laughing together is worth all the hard work that goes into planning a party. It wouldn’t be summer without a backyard barbecue party. Unfortunately, my patio set only seats six and my parties tend to average about 20 people.
I debated buying other patio sets, but I really didn’t want more bulky furniture in the backyard taking up space year round. While searching online one night, I found a travelchair 6 seat bench. I’ve used travel chairs on camping trips so I thought I’d give the bench a try. Thank goodness I did! The bench is comfortable and adds much needed seating for my outdoor shindigs. The best part is that when the party is over, I just fold up the bench and store it in the garage.

When my sister and I would spend the summer with our Aunt Sandy, our favorite thing was to lay by the pool. We would sit by the pool all day. My sister would always try to out tan me. From the minute that we would wake up and the sun would come up we were out the door.
I remember a particular day when we got in one of our biggest fights. It was over our favorite outdoor lounge chair. It was hot pink and could lean all the way back. We would take turns laying on it. For some reason, maybe it was the heat, but she and I started arguing over whose turn it was. All I can remember is that I won and she ended up in the pool, way before she was ready.
Growing up in the California summers, my mother would throw amazing backyard potluck parties. She would invite all the neighbors and children on our street. It was great to see all our friends having fun. Swinging on the swings set, playing red rover, listening to the parents talking about there workweek, what their kids did that week to drive them crazy.
The food that everyone would bring was so different. We had variety of ethnicities, so the food was very interesting. It amazed me how my mother would arrange all the platters on the two iron patio dining sets that she owned for many summers. We would throw a party once a month. To this day she still throws parties in the summer using the same patio sets in the backyard.
