Making our outdoor spaces as welcoming as possible right now includes having a basket filled with an assortment of blankets and throws for you and your guests to cuddle up in. As temps dip, bringing your own throw to a local restaurant to either sit on (metal chairs are soo cold!) or layer over your jacket might make the difference between an enjoyable dining experience and being so uncomfortable you don’t even want to finish your meal.
I have looked at lots of options and found great choices in all price ranges (many are on sale) so all you have to do is click. There is something for everyone – tartan plaids, tie-dye, animal prints, faux fur, sherpa, down throws and even a travel one with a carrying case. They are great for gift-giving too and one style can even be monogrammed. And when it’s too cold to be outside, these throws will make cozy couch companions. Here is my roundup of throw blankets guaranteed to help you stay warm and be an A+ hostess at all your outside gatherings.
