Ello, folks! I hope that you are doing well and I do hope that you all had a fab Easter with family? Today I wanted to chat about something I am passionate about, entertaining. When it comes to the spring and summer seasons the one thing that I look forward to is entertaining guests outside, when possible. A great place to look for amazing outdoor and indoor decor is from Great Gatherings.

Great Gatherings created an atmosphere that brings elements of entertaining together in one place so that you can easily visualize and experience all the unique and exciting ways to “perfect your art of entertaining” in your home. No other retailer in the D.C. area has the massive inventory like GreatGatherings and, in many cases, exclusive furniture style so you can create the best gathering spots in or outside any home. They have a massive five 17,000 sq. ft. designer showrooms where you and your clients can see an enormous variety of product selection.

Like GreatGatherings I believe that the atmosphere in your outdoor space should be warm and inviting. GreatGatherings offers luxury outdoor furniture with unparalleled quality and sophisticated styling from the industry’s leading brands such as Brown Jordan, Lloyd Flanders, Tommy Bahama, Tropitone, and more. You’ll also find all the accessories – from breathtaking chaise lounges to cozy fire pits – to make any outdoor party one to remember.

If you don’t know where to start to perfect your space and transform it into the ultimate gathering areas, GreatGatherings offers many books to how-to presentations given by entertaining professionals. Customers can purchase an entire room collection, individual pieces, including the hottest party glassware, serveware, décor, and recipes themed to holidays and party events throughout their entire year.

A GreatGatherings store is an experience that caters to all of your senses. It might be the inviting scents permeating throughout, or the stunning visuals of the professionally decorated and merchandised room vignettes, or perhaps it’s the monitors throughout the store where you stop to watch the greatest party clips from our favorite Hollywood movies, or the potential sounds of our guests playing pool or air hockey, or the professional sales associates that treat you like a guest rather than a customer. GreatGatherings has a way of inspiring its guests and enticing them to repeat their store experience in their own home with the people they love and charish.

Switching Off Your Tech

GreatGatherings can help you and your family switch off their tech and spend time with family in friends in an amazing environment. Everyone knows that being connected is a must, but there are times when tech should be shut down, turned off, and enjoy what is around you.

According to consumer trends research company, Mintel, people are beginning to look for places and opportunities to switch off, tune out and disconnect. Mintel says, “Through encouraging people to disconnect and take some time away from the connected world, brands can attract consumers who are feeling like a break from the norm. They can be marketed as places of discussion, debate and
real-world connections, as well as venues for the lost arts of entertainment and conversation.


GreatGatherings can certainly help you to create your space no matter how big or small you are looking to go. With an amazing space that you and your family can create amazing memories, you will have no problem putting that cellphone down or having the kids stop playing video games.

You can use the GreatGatherings store finder to find the nearest location near you. I would highly suggest utilizing their resources to creatte your perfect outdoor or indoor area.
