SUN AND GAMES

Summer Solstice is Upon Us

"We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."
-George Bernard Shaw

Summer solstice is upon us and we’re making the most of the long sunny days and sultry Miami evenings; it’s a great time to reconnect with family and friends and the inner child we all neglected during the short winter days.

Our team has discovered some beautiful outdoor furniture options for dining and relaxing. We also have a roundup of gorgeously handcrafted lawn games. Check out the products that follow and let us know what you think.

We love the entire range of made-to-order lawn games from Geoffrey Parker. The attention to detail and the packaging/presentation, from willow wicker baskets to Dauphin calf leather cases, make these games truly special.
