Outdoor Essentials from The Monogrammed Peony

Monogrammed Party Bucket // Acrylic Outdoor Wine Glasses // Similar Dress Here and Here

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. It was absolutely beautiful here in Chicago so Ryan and I spent a lot of time relaxing in our backyard. It’s been so fun to finally get to enjoy it! I’m super excited about today’s post because it’s the perfect way to kick off what feels like the start to summer.

My favorite thing to do during the warmer months is hang out outside with some great music (I love jazz, Dave Matthews or Michael Buble) and a glass of one of my favorite summer drinks (I have quite a few depending on my mood lol!). Back in November I shared this monogrammed party bucket & acrylic wine glasses from The Monogrammed Peony as a really great gift idea for the holidays and now I want to gift this fun set to one of you! The party bucket is absolutely perfect for hanging out outside with your family, significant other or roommates. As you can see the bucket fits a lot so everyone can keep their favorite drink on ice while you hang outside. I also love these monogramed wine glasses for drinking outside. The Monogrammed Peony has so many different personalized designs to choose from to fit your style.

As a thank you to all of you who have supported me through this difficult time, I’m teaming up with The Monogramed Peony to giveaway one party bucket, two monogramed wine glasses and a $75 gift card to Target to treat you to your favorite summer drink to one follower! Head to my Instagram to find out how to enter! The Giveaway starts today and ends Wednesday, May 6 at 11:59 p.m. CST.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

This brass tube vase makes the perfect centerpiece for a long dining table or console! 💐 I filled it with yellow, pink and white faux spring florals but you can use real flowers! How pretty would some tulips look?! There are so many ways you can fill this piece. A few tips to get this look:
Pick three colors to work with
Pick two statement flowers 
Pick three “filler” florals or greenery
Cut your faux floral stems to get a variety of lengths. 
I like using faux florals because you can easily manipulate the direction of the stems to get a more wildflower look. Also, they’re easier to keep alive 😉
