It’s upon us, the longest and most magnificent day of the year: the summer solstice. You can acknowledge the first, official day of summer with a few, outdoor gestures of your own.

Head outside before dawn with coffee and bagels and kick on the Nisho fire pit. Then sit back and wait for it – the earliest sunrise on the calendar.

Spend the morning tending to your garden. This Faccia planter adds just the right amount of personality whether your garden is comprised of acres or feet.  Then, when the rest of the crowd is up, invite them outdoors for brunch, served on a dining table made of recycled milk jugs.

Nothing says summer like a midday nap outdoors, especially on this ultra-comfortable sofa by Telescope Casual. Put your head down, your feet up and enjoy the restoration that occurs when you do nothing at all.

Now it’s time to ramp it up. Did someone say cocktails? Tables, footstools and outdoor lights. We’ll drink to that!
