With the unofficially kick-off to the summer behind us, we are officially stoked to start drinking al fresco.
But whether you’re drinking at the beach, a music festival, or even in your own backyard, finding a place to put your wine glass when you’re outside is always a dilemma. Thankfully, there are some great accessories available now that can really help! So we reached out to our friends at Wine Enthusiast for some of their must-have suggestions.
Start with these four:
Good Outdoor Glasses – Any good outdoor party has to start with with great outdoor glasses and this 12-pack will make any wine lover happy. It comes with four red wine stemmed glasses, four white stemmed glasses and four tumblers. They’re certainly not crystal but they look like they are, so let’s officially retire the red solo cups.
Wine Table for Two – This awesome table for two has a post in the middle that you shove into the ground. It has two side slots for your stemmed wine glasses and enough space for a bowl of chips. It’s made of durable bamboo and stores flat, so you can take it with you and stake your claim anywhere you want.
Wine Picnic Tray – This super cool picnic tray on legs has two slots for your stemmed wine glasses plus a carved-out section to hold a bottle of wine. And bigger bonus is that the tray has plenty of room for lunch.
We love that the legs fall flat so you can take your picnic anywhere you want, including your bedroom for Champagne and breakfast in bed.
Lawn Dice – Yes, we said Lawn Dice. Because we love outdoor lawn games. These super-cool oversized dice have rounded corners so you can roll the afternoon away. And the numbers are heat-branded so they wont fade or come off. And we’re pretty sure you can figure out some good drinking games with them but if you need some dice game suggestions, check these out here.
And if you have any favorite outdoor accessories, please let us know!
