Spring Picks from A Design Resource

By: Renee Categories:Bee Inspired, Buzzworthy

Have you looked at A Design Resource yet? The weather is warming up, and we're looking forward to outdoor gatherings. Here's some favorites from my catalog.

Candles offered by interior design website adesignresource.com

These citronella garden candles are a pretty alternative to the ordinary citronella bucket candle we see in so many gardens.

Pea Pod dish at interior designer Renee Lilly's website

If you're doing more entertaining with the nice weather, this adorable pea-pod shaped serving dish will do well for finger foods and nibbles.

Asian Prosperity Tea Table sold by interior designer Renee Lilly

Beautiful Asian prosperity tea table, which could double as a stool if it is more appropriate to your garden. This is a lovely addition to any garden, especially Southern gardens that often have azaleas and other Asian style plants.

What are you doing to celebrate the beginning of spring? Are there items you're on the lookout for to complete your outdoor design? I'd love to help you find that perfect piece.

Enjoy the weather while it lasts!
