Our Perfect Staycation with Crane & Canopy

What does the perfect staycation mean to you? It might be time spent alone, relaxing with a good book or inviting some family and friends over for a fun BBQ! We are sharing what our perfect staycation looks like, which includes time with friends, and of course food and drinks!

To make it feel like we were at some tropical resort and not in our own backyard, we set up this beautiful table scape with drinks and refreshing fruit. Can someone say #pinterestgoals ?! We set the table with some decorations we had laying around the house and made a refreshing frosé drink to help us keep cool in this sweltering heat! The recipe for our drink by Bon Appetit can be found here. We then added a tray of fruit and macaroons (yum!) so our friends had something to snack on. Flowers completed the table to add pops of color and we even added petals to the ice bucket, which looked so cute!

One item we couldn’t forget was our Crane and Canopy Fouta towels (here). They are 100% Turkish Cotton and feel sooo soft. They also absorb water quickly (which was much needed on this hot day!) and the best part is they matched our color scheme perfectly! Relaxing in the backyard and catching up with friends over drinks and food was the perfect staycation for us. We were able to kick our feet up and not worry about having to go anywhere!

As the sun went down and it was time to get ready for bed, we made sure that the guest bed was perfectly made with Crane and Canopy’s Mirabel duvet cover (here) and that they had fresh bath towels to use. The Fouta towels have so many uses and the bath towel even has a cotton loop to hang up and dry properly. How great is that?! But just like any other vacation, staycations must unfortunately come to an end. We are feeling recharged and less stressed that we didn’t have to travel far and we were able to still have an amazing time!
