I read your blog on making a backyard oasis! It was really great! Any tips for outdoor lawn games?
Jade: Hi @marie_606!
OH, I love lawn games! It definitely takes a summer BBQ to a whole other level!
Here's a list of some that I've played and think are fun and others that I just think would be a great idea:
Cornhole - You know, it's that one with the angled boards where you have to toss the beanbags in to score!
Jenga - No, not just your average tabletop jenga. If you do a quick little Google search you'll be able to find a huge lawn-sized jenga game. Imagine being the one to make that Jenga tower fall over!
Croquet - Ok, this one makes me sound like an old lady but hey! Don't knock it 'til you try it!
Ladderball - I think that's what it's called! It's similar to horseshoes but you throw weighted ropes that wrap around a 3-rung ladder to score.
Frisbee - This one has minimal setup and you can make anything the goal! See that tree over there? Boom! Just hit it with my super frizz skills... 3 points!
Thanks so much for your question! That was a really fun one!
I was sitting out in my backyard the other night enjoying a little post-work beverage and chill time but it was inevitably buggy outside... of course. Let me tell you, these little buggers work great! Hehe, get it? L'il buggers... mosquitos... yeah. Anyway, not a bitey bug in sight.
Plus, they smell amazing! I think the Orange Blossomone is my favorite... no wait... maybe I like the Wild Berry more. Let's just leave it at, you really can't go wrong with this cutie little 2-pack of outdoor candles (with rings inside!)
More of a suggestion than a question - you should offer gift cards (I'm awful at picking out gifts!)
Jade: Hi @orion_excursions!
Your wish is granted! Lol! We actually do have gift cards on our site. I know they're kinda hard to find so I'll drop the link right here:
You can get gift cards in the amounts of $10, $25, $50 & $100, so you should be able to find an option that suits your gift-giving needs!
I definitely have a few hard-to-shop-for friends... maybe I should grab a few gift cards for them now that you mention it. I've got a couple of birthdays coming up that I need to shop for and this is just too perfect!
