Top 5 Summer Necessities for Your Home

Memorial Day marks the un-official start to summer - you've probably heard. This means it's time to stock up on official summer necessities.  What are oomph's must haves for the summer months ahead?  Take a look!

1. A Well Stocked Bar (oomph bart cart, of course)

The oomphtini is our favorite drink, hands down.  But come summer (or Memorial Day) we like to mix it up with some alternative libations: The Dark 'n' Stormy, Margarita, and Rose Wine.  Stock your barcart!

Dark 'n' Stormy Recipe: In a tall glass, fill with ice, add 4-5 oz of Ginger Beer, top with 1.5 oz of Gosling's Rum.

Margarita Recipe: In a shaker or blender combine 1 cup Tequila, 1 cup Cointreau, 1/2 Cup Fresh Lime juice.  Shake or Blend to perfection.

  2. Cocktail Rings

oomph style?  Pretty classic.  Our uniform is white jeans and just about anything on top.  But we add "oomph" to our summer whites with killer pieces of jewelry . . . like a Verdura Cocktail Ring, or maybe one from ASHA!

3. Boats

Messing around on boats is just about the best thing - ever.  We're not really picky when it comes to what kind, as long as it gets us out on the water for a great few days of sailing or a sunset cruise.  I suppose if we had to choose, we'd pick a classic:


4. Neighborhood Control

Inevitably, summer brings a few trouble-makers to the nieghborhood and noisy late-night revelry.  Be prepared with a water balloon launcher to take care of business.  You might be surprised just how handy it is!



5. Conversation Pieces

Summer isn't summer without a few house guests, get-togethers, and friends "stopping by."  They are coming whether you like it or not, so your house might-as-well look swell.  For a limited time this summer, oomph will offer "quick ship" on best-selling styles, including some one-of-a-kind Quadrille and China Seas upholstered pieces.  We thought ahead for you, so you didn't have to!  They are boxed and ready to go - visit www.oomphonline.com to see the selection and get summer started on the right foot
