Grilling Season is Here!


As you guys know, we recently moved into a new home and while the kitchen is all done and in tip-top shape, we still have SO much to do. The den is completely empty (great for dance parties tho!) and the dining room needs some love. Besides creating a cozy room to watch movies, the other area in the house that I’m super excited about is the backyard.

We can’t wait to spend this summer grilling and hanging out with friends. The backyard is actually quite pretty as is, so all it really needs is a few accessories. We’re excited to deck it out with some cool grilling stuff. So that’s why I was super excited when I was invited to a Home Depot event called Garden to Grill. The event was showing off all of the pretty items that The Home Depot has that can make your outdoor space beautiful.

The event was super cute. It was at The Lombardi House and the gardening part included a DIY herb box that I barely was able to make. Luckily my friend Billy was with me and he used to build bird feeders with his dad so he’s handy. It now sits in my backyard and I can’t wait to walk outside and pick some chocolate mint from it.

We also toured some grilling items by Charcoal Companion like this really pretty Himalayan Salt Plate that you can use to cook items on it on the grill OR just simply use it as a cheese board. I also love this Pitt Mitt, which makes it easy to grill and protect your hands.

There were grills both of which I have my eye on. First was this really pretty and affordable stainless steel grill from Nexgrill. And you know I love KitchenAid, this red one is gorgeous, though I do have my eye on the black one to match my kitchen range. Both of these grills are exclusive to The Home Depot!

Are you guys excited about grilling season? I can’t wait to make burgers on the grill and hang out underneath the hanging lights we just put up!

    Wow! Sounds like such a fun event! We haven’t touched our backyard since we moved into our house two years ago and are dying to get it all shaped up for outdoor cooking and dining. I’m picturing a pergola strung with lights, lots of raised planters, and a grill. I’m expecting, though, so a lot of our projects planned for this summer got put on hold so we could divert energy to getting ready for baby. Next year maybe!

    I Love that Herb Drying rack, or ladder. Can you tell me more about that? It would be a nice addition to my back patio, as I have an outdoor Herb garden. Thank You, Donna

    Nothing is better than a backyard for party. I’m really missing bbq days right now!!
    This event looks cool. With things arranged on table did they organize a contest or something?

    To tell you the truth, up until last week I’d never baked with puff pastry before. I usually do as much of my baking as possible from scratch, but the idea of making homemade puff pastry is fairly intimidating – I’ve seen them do it on the Great British Baking Show and someone always makes a giant mess of it. So I figured I might as well give the frozen kind a try, and it worked like a dream.
