Enjoy the warm weather and start summer early while in remembrance. Here are some neat décor ideas from IKEA to jumpstart your patriotic weekend.
Spend the day sun-soaked in fresh air. Use the KARLSÖ / SVARTÖ hanging umbrella (that comes with a base!) for shade. The fabric gives excellent protection against the sun’s UV rays as it has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+, which means it blocks 98% of the ultraviolet radiation. The FALSTER table and armchairs are made of polystyrene slats that are weather-resistant and easy to care for, which means they are virtually maintenance free.
What would an outdoor chair be without a chair pad?! The EKERÖN chair pad is fashioned with red, white and blue stripes, perfect for those celebratory holidays. You can even vary the look of your outdoor area simply by turning the pad over, since the pattern is different on each side.
To add some patriotic charm to your backyard oasis, try the classic VARDAGEN tablecloth. It both protects the table and creates a decorative table setting with atmosphere.
As for snacks, we recommend KANELBULLAR ready to bake cinnamon buns. You can smell the sweet dough from miles away, what a treat! Serve with coffee, tea, or a tall glass of lingonberry drink. Yum!
Lastly, as the sun sets and the celebration continues, use the SÄRDAL LED light chain with the SOLVINDEN bulb decorations to add depth to your light fixtures. It creates a dramatic effect in the dark. The cozy glow gives warmth and spreads the holiday atmosphere outdoors, around your patio, terrace or balcony. You can use these decorations to personalize your light chain to match the season or your style – and change them any time you like!
Enjoy the weekend, and remember to honor the past while creating lasting memories with loves ones.
