Keep The Bugs At Bay

One of my FAVORITE things to do in the Summer time is be outdoors. I love reading, walking, playing games in the yard and most of all I love grilling out and having dinner parties on the back patio.

Doesn't this just make you want to have some friends over for a back yard BBQ? Whats not to love?.... except of course, with summer comes lots of bugs.

If you are anything like me, I can not stand having bugs around.... and citronella candles work great except that so many of them are just flat ugly. Well I have done a little research for you (and me) and found some great options that are affordable AND stylish!

These are adorable from West Elm

These World Market candles are great for a more funky look

Or these bucket lights from Crate and barrel

These planter style candles are great from Pier 1

Or these planters from Pottery Barn are great too!

I love these floating candles from Pottery Barn too! Wouldn't these be great for a backyard pool?
