'Tis the Season to Pop a Tent

As the snow melts into Spring (well, not here because we never have snow to begin with), you leave home a little lighter not because you ate an Activia Probiotic Yogurt for breakfast instead of eggs and bacon (which you did because you ran out of eggs and bacon), but because your winter jacket and scarf stay hanging in your winter closet. Delightfully taking in the fresh, warm air as you walk to your car, you can see birds flying back home, stark trees taking back their green hues and dirty asphalt making its indifferent reappearance. As you fiddle for you car keys, a swirl of gnats enter your personal space. Waving your hands in front of your face to swat them away, your neighbor spots you from a distance, unaware of the gnat attack. You lock eyes, so you turn your jolting hand movements into a wave and yell, “Beautiful weather, ain’t it?” Your neighbor replies, “Ain’t isn’t a word.” You smile, then duck into your car to mimic him while you drive off to work.


Well, your neighbor may be a regular Oscar the Grouch, but that’s because of your use of slang and his lack of personality. Trust me, your neighbor DOES think it’s beautiful weather. And you know what beautiful weather means? Patio season! It’s time to take out your wicker, wood, plastic and fabric furnishings and set up shop. How exciting! There’s nothing like hanging outdoors, sipping on some ice tea and hanging with friends while you enjoy the view.


Sure, being under the sun is fun, but you can’t be under sun exposure for too long without some sort of sun protection. Remember to wear a hat or some sunglasses and to use sunblock. Seek shade under trees, umbrellas and patio covers. Another popular way to seek shade is to set up a temporary walk-in tent. Many folks use our Casita Canopy Tents for parties, fairs, contests, and other outdoor marketing purposes to provide cover from the sun rays. And you know what else? We have a very new Casita product!


Introducing the Casita Canopy Steel, with the same UV printed graphic canopy top.  

As you can see from the pictures, the steel Casita (above) is almost exactly the same as our UV aluminum Casita (below). The major differences between both Casitas are the metal types, the leg shape (steel Casita has square legs whereas the aluminum has hexagonal legs), and the steel Casita is slightly heavier and more dense. You may like aluminum because it is lighter. You may like steel because it is a stronger and less susceptible to dents. Either way, for both types of Casitas, we use a water-resistant material and UV cured inks for your custom graphic print.

  1. Hi Victoria, wonderful piece! Especially the way you incorporate storytelling with a spice of humor! I was expecting the "gnat to be swat" ending but no, the grouch was in the way. Good thing though! You are natural, in case you might be open to improvement essayrepublic can do magic. You have no idea how and what words can do to readers like me.
