Golf or Tennis Anyone? Bistro Birthday: Part 5

This is the very last of my many posts on the bistro chair leading up to our Bistro Birthday Party at our Southampton, NY store, happening today! I’ve really been trying to show how versatile the bistro chair is so that you’ll understand why it’s invention 125 years ago is so fabulous. In this post, I was able to get some shots of a few of the 24 colors that Fermob offers this chair in, at one of the golf courses here in the Hamptons that happens to have some incredible views. Why not enjoy the view in a bistro chair?

With the flag chair, above, it was easy to work the Bistro Birthday into the 4th of July. I took the photo above of the flag chair at the other end of Lake Agawam in Agawam Park. We’re lucky to have this lovely green space where they do concerts in the park. There is also features a World War I memorial, World War II and Korean War memorials, as well as a playground. A great spot to take a picnic and the kids.

I hope you have a wonderful July 4th! Don’t forget to comment on your favorite Bistro Birthday post by noon on July 12, 2014 for a chance to win a limited edition poppy red bistro chair! Check out the introduction post here and Part 1 and Part 2.

Happy Birthday Bistro:Part 2 Lake Agawam, Southampton

After we packed up the bistro chairs at Cooper’s Beach, we headed to another iconic location in Southampton, Lake Agawam. It’s very near to Cooper’s Beach. Just head down Gin Lane. There, we stopped across from the stunning St. Andrew’s Church, at one end of Lake Agawam, to photograph the bistro chair the the edge of the lake, because this great little chair is perfect for fishing. We were lucky enough to catch some locals who asked if they could keep the chairs after we took their photos fishing on the them!

I think the photo above is my favorite of all the ones I took during our Bistro Birthday “at the beach” photo shoots. It was such a perfect time of the day with the day light, to show the great bistro chair colors. But, I really just loved seeing the boys fishing across from the stunning church. There is also a windmill in the distance if you turn toward the church. It just made me imagine what Southampton was like in the 1600’s when it was settled.

Don’t forget to tell me what your favorite photo is in my series celebrating the 125th Birthday of the Bistro Chair. Leave it in the comments section. You will be entered to win one poppy red limited edition bistro chair. However, you must leave your comment by noon on July 12, 2014. See my first post here and the Cooper’s Beach post here.

Bistro Birthday “at the beach” Part 1 Coopers Beach, Southampton, NY

Coopers Beach with bike wide edited I am very fortunate to own a business and live in such a beautiful place. So, when I was coming up with ideas to promote our coming Bistro Birthday celebration, I just kept thinking of how great the bistro chair in all of it’s wonderful 24 colors looks in all of our surroundings, and I thought it would be great to share with you images of this fabulous 125 year old chair at Coopers Beach, Southampton, NY. (voted America’s number one beach.)

I and my assistant manager packed up 34 bistro chairs and brought them to Coopers Beach at the end of the day. Don’t you just love the idea of watching the sunset? I was very lucky to get such a great evening to do the photo shoot. The light was just right to show off all the fantastic colors.

Reflections on 2012

As the year comes to a close, I am taking a look back and sharing some of the things I’m so grateful for this year.

A) The incredible joy and support of my family and friends. I turned 40 this year and it was a great excuse to get my family and friends together.

B) The opportunity to work with clients to create some beautiful spaces. We had the chance to revamp some existing pieces, use sustainable new pieces, and create spaces we hope will last and last.

C) This year, I was able to put together a team of two talented women who have helped my business greatly. Having them has also given me the ability to be more flexible with my children. A true gift.

D) We were able to have some great events this year at Sea Green Designs. We hosted a few trunk shows and had a few demonstrations at our Holiday Open House.

E) Lastly, I am grateful for our new location. I may not have had the best timing (the week before Hurricane Sandy), but with my staff, family, and friends, we made the move, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m looking forward to the new year in our new space.

Thank you, too for your support and following Sea Green Designs in our endeavors. We would love to hear from you.

May you have a Happy, Healthy, New Year!

LOL, Shannon
