Welcome to the Outdoor Entertainment Giveaway!

Outdoor Entertainment

Sponsored by: Brylane Home     Hosted by: Powered by Mom Blog and a wonderful group of bloggers

Whether you’re looking for something for inside or outside your home Brylane Home has it all! Whether it’s towels, bedding, kitchenware, bbq cover or how about a gazebo Brylane Home has so many items to help you decorate your house, make it functional or just have some outdoor fun!

Here are but a few of our favorites from Brylane Home for some outdoor entertainment that Powered by Mom had the opportunity to review!

Here are some fabulous mesh tents to keep those pesky insects away from your scrumptious food?! These are so handy to have when entertaining outside so that you can have the food there for you and your gifts without worrying about anything getting on the food! We used these awesome tents for our annual Summer barbeque and I am so happy we had them! In previous years were swatting away flies, mosquitoes and other pesky insects but not this year! I love the set of 4 tents as the whole set covered all the food on our table and there was a lot of food. The extra large one picture below, it alone covers several dishes! They are easy to wash as well, I just rinsed it in warm water and set it out to dry and it was done!

Brylane Home also has several options for gazebos to suit any yard. This water resistant frame gazebo is one of the most popular and easily fits a table, chairs and more underneath it for your backyard fun! This awesome gazebo was perfect for us as it fit nicely on our backyard patio and provided shade for those hot days and was perfect for our annual barbeque. It was a scorcher of a day so everyone kept sitting underneath the gazebo as it was so cozy!

Here’s a picture of it all set up in our yard.

This wonderful gazebo actually fit both our patio tables underneath it so that we could set up the food on the back table and the front table people sat down to enjoy the food and later at night our fire pit which you can’t see but it sits just outside the gazebo. I also ended up stringing up some LED lights around the gazebo so that we can enjoy it at night time as well. It’s actually very relaxing and peaceful to sit beneath it in the evening with it all it up. I’ve even sat under it when we had a bit of rain one day and even with the vented top I did not get wet, nothing came through the gazebo.

This picture doesn’t do it justice but here’s an evening picture with the lights on and one of our fire pits 🙂

Last but not least is our giveaway item the drink dispenser with 8 tumblers. This is a party favorite that can be used all year round. You can have some refreshing water with lemons, oranges, ice tea and so much more the options are endless! I forgot to take my own picture even though I have used this dispenser several times now! Our favorite is to have lemons and cucumber in it as that’s one of refreshing beverage of choice! It’s easy to set up and clean which is important. The stand is a separate piece but you want to use it so that the dispenser is high enough on the table to fit a glass underneath it. I’ve also put in some colorful beverages which really give it a festive look such as a pomegranate and cherry iced tea with some fruit in it, not only does it taste good but it makes for a wonderful centerpiece!


Now for the fun go and enter the giveaway for your chance at a Brylane Home Drink Dispenser set!

good luck blue
