Summer Fun & Games Ideas Coming in Outdoor Games Style Challenge

This summer, to spread the spirit of long summer days, sprinkler running, watermelon snacks, and summer fun, we created a brand new spin on our popular Style Challenge series–and we’ve asked some of the best DIY and home decor bloggers to join us. This year, in our Outdoor Games Style Challenge, we have 17 bloggers ready to share their summer fun with you. We hope you’ll be inspired by their creative and fun ideas to get outside and play!
