These Martha Stewart Products Make Summertime Activities at Home Easier and More Fun
Armed with Martha's best products, backyard barbecues, lawn work, and crafting with your kids is so much simpler and way more fun! Make your time spent at home more enjoyable with these must-haves from our founder's collections.
Though some states have lifted their stay-at-home orders and have started to allow more public activities, you likely plan to spend more time at home this summer than you ever have before. But that doesn't mean you can't make your space beautiful, your activities more fun, and the process of preparing family meals a little bit easier. With the help of these Martha Stewart products, you can look forward to a season spent unwinding at home.
Whether you're making cocktails or cooling off from the summer heat with a tall glass of water, make your drink of choice feel a little fancier by pouring it into fun glassware. We love the summery cups and stirrers from Martha's So-Cal Collection from Macy's, and purchasing a set (or two!) of the Tom Collins glasses picture above is an easy way to make sure your outdoor bar cart is always guest-ready.

Summer Potted Plants
Are you looking for a few fun craft ideas to keep little ones busy when camp isn't in session? If you have some old terra-cotta pots laying around, use Martha's craft paints to transform them into original works of art. You can then use the finished products to decorate your backyard, balcony, or entryway with plants you've picked up from your local garden center.
Many families swap out their bedding in summer, but it's a good idea to think beyond just sheets. Our favorite tip? Trade in your heavy duvet for a lighter quilt. Martha's quilts, available at Macy's, are beautiful and versatile. While they'll definitely sit pretty on your bed, we also like to use them as picnic blankets, while watching movies at night in the backyard or drive in, or even as a creative material to build a tent with the kids.

Sips of Summer
Whether you're eating dinner in the backyard or in the form of a picnic on the beach, Martha's favorite summer wines, all available through Martha Stewart Wine Co., pair nicely with seasonal fare. Best of all, receiving your wine couldn't be easier—choose the bottles you want and the delivery will arrive right on your doorstep.
Grill Indoors and Out
We love cookware that can pull double duty! An enameled cast iron grill pan can be used for searing steaks inside when the weather isn't so nice. And when it is outdoor grilling weather? Use your grill pan, along with the rest of Martha's grilling tools from Macy's, to whip up a delicious meal in the open air.

Are you or your son or daughter tying the knot? Get ahead of those wedding-related to-dos by choosing and ordering items like save-the-date cards, thank-you notes, or invitations now. Martha's mixbook collection lets you personalize designs to your liking. And if the wedding has already taken place, use her templates to create a beautiful photo album to show off all of your favorite pictures from the big day.
You might not be going on vacation this year, but that doesn't mean you can't make everyday activities like hanging out by the pool feel a little more luxurious. These soft, absorbent beach towels are just the thing to have on hand when you and the kids are constantly hopping in and out of the pool, running through the sprinkler, or heading to the beach.
