What's New and Fresh in Home and Garden Accessories
Chris has searched high and low to find great accessories to enhance your home. Sometimes the simplest things can change a outdoor space such as outdoor pillows and even welcome mats. Chris has new soft and colorful pillows that will change a drab chair or bench into something fresh and inviting. Make sure whatever pillows you choose for outside are for the outside and know this, outdoor pillows don't last forever so each year or two you will need to refresh. Change out your pillows for the seasons for a new look year round.
Don't forget to put out a welcome mat. Make sure the mat reflects your personality. If you like cats then get a welcome mat with a cat theme, etc. Have fun with it and be different. You want colorful mats that will but a smile on your visitors face. A word of caution, the natural fiber mats fade rather quickly and wear and tear will enhance the process. Chris has a new line to show you that is made from rubber. They are durable, indoor and outdoor use, non-skid, anti-microbial, and hypoallergenic. And are they vibrant, colorful, and unique in design. It can be that simple to transform your space.
Make your dining room table look spectacular this Easter Sunday. All you have to do is plant a low container, bowl or better yet an Easter basket with an assortment of different Easter spring flowers such as the Easter lily, spring bulbs, a soft maiden hair fern and a few colorful foliage plants such as the Rex begonia. For fluff and filler add Easter basket straw that comes in an assortment of colors. Then add your Easter eggs and even a chocolate bunny for fun.
