Summer Solstice Celebrations Sponsored by Wayfair

Summer Solstice is one of my very favorite days of the entire year. Every June 21st, the sun sets at 8:35pm. We get to enjoy an astounding 16 hours and 38 minutes of sunlight. This is truly a day to get outside and celebrate. It means summer is in full swing and my kids are playing outside all day long until the lighting bugs are the only playmates left outside. 

There are so many different ways to celebrate the extra daylight... a quiet night on the porch with drinks, invite friends over for dinner, or throw a good old fashioned neighborhood block party. We've done all three, but the neighborhood gatherings are always something special. It doesn't take much to throw together a backyard block party- food, music, drinks, and lots of kids running around. Sometimes even a theme is born and games appear, and prizes! We turned an ordinary evening into a neighborhood carnival... you can find all the details here

I've put together a list of my favorite outdoor entertaining must haves from Wayfair... from popcorn makers, to cotton candy machines, and retro coolers. Each add something extra special to outdoor celebrations. 

Happy Summer Solstice celebrations everyone!

  1. Jenny I love every second of this old school block party especially the tire swing. Nothing beats good old fashion fun and your entertaining pics are perfect! As a kid I always dreamed of having one of those cotton candy fun!
