2019 Color of the Year

Many look to PANTONE for the Color of the Year but there are many companies involved in design and fashion that have their own predictions for the 2019 Color of the Year. In order to help keep your outdoor living space looking fresh and embracing the latest color trends, we’ve compiled a list of the top 2019 color of the year predictions.

 

PANTONE 2019 Color of the Year is Living Coral
Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color. Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. Living Coral represents authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity.

Behr’s 2019 Color of the Year is Blueprint
An honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life, Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own reimagined life—where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action.

Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year is Cavern Clay
Sherwin-Williams revealed its 2019 Color of the Year is Cavern Clay. A warm terracotta color with ancient, elemental roots, Cavern Clay is a nod to midcentury modern style, but with the soul of the American Southwest, which together creates the desert modern aesthetic. Cavern Clay is a warm and earthy hue that is both casual and refined. According to Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, the color embodies renewal, simplicity and free-spirited, bohemian flair.

 

People.com 2019 Color of the Year is Night Watch
People is even getting in the action. Their trend forecasters are declaring the color that will define 2019 is “Night Watch.”  A rich teal, this luxe shade was selected by People’s board of global color experts since it emulates the feeling of lush greenery and the healing power of nature, which is great for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

With these color trends in mind, we invite you come visit at Bay Breeze Patio (1 mile west of Silver Sands Premium Outlets) and view our offering of outdoor fabrics for pillows, cushions and shades. that complement and embrace the 2019 color of the year predictions.

How to cook your Thanksgiving Turkey on the Big Green Egg

It’s our favorite time of year! Fall grilling season, Thanksgiving feasts and holiday parties are just a few of the fun moments that make us love this time of year. How will you prepare your Thanksgiving turkey? There are three options—brined, injected or roasted. Each of these methods can be accomplished indoors in the oven or outdoors on the smoker or the Big Green Egg. Here’s a look at each so you can determine your turkey preference.

Roasted
Roasted turkeys may be cooked in oven  but we prefer them cooked on a smoker or Big Green Egg. Roasting a turkey is best done in a two-step process. Set the EGG up for indirect cooking with the temp at 325°F/163°C. Use a handful of pecan chips for a light, smoky flavor and to provide a deep brown color to the turkey. Spread the seasoning generously over the outside of the bird. Load the bird onto a Vertical Poultry Roaster or Rib and Roasting Rack, then place into a drip pan. Add the onion and celery to the drip pan. Fill the pan with chicken broth, wine, or water. Cook for 12 minutes per pound until the turkey has reached a safe minimum internal temperature of 165°F/74°C throughout the bird. Reserve the drippings from the drip pan to make gravy. For complete roasting recipe for turkey on the Big Green Egg, click here.

Brined
Soaking a turkey overnight in a solution of salt and water ensures moist results. When you add aromatics to the brine, the resulting roast is also infused with a subtle character all its own. You can brine a turkey for the oven or smoker.

Smoked Brined Turkey
Once you try brined turkey, you’ll soon want to try a “smoked” brined turkey. The turkey gains a subtle smoky flavor and is moist and succulent, and if you prefer a bolder smoky flavor, add more hickory or pecan smoking wood chips in increments during cooking. This turkey is great for holiday meals, and you can use the leftovers to make wonderful sandwiches.

This turkey has a subtle smoky flavor and is moist, juicy and delicious. To cook a smoked brined turkey on your Big Green Egg, click here for  Chef Kevin Rathbun’s delicious recipe. Or try Steven Raichlen’s Maple-Brined Smoke-Roasted Turkey recipe and prepared to be “wowed!’

Injected

Injected turkeys tend to have bold flavor. Click here to view two video recipes from Dr. BBQ, demonstrating how to prepare two holiday turkey flavors– an Injected Cajun Creole Butter Turkey and a Lemon, Pepper and Herb Turkey. If you are preparing a whole turkey, just double the injection recipe and inject into the thighs as well as the breasts. These are great recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas or a delicious meal throughout the year.

Ready to get a Big Green Egg or enhance/build your outdoor kitchen? Contacts us Bay Breeze Patio at 850-269-4666 to discuss the joys of an outdoor kitchen.

Eggs on the Beach Cooking Competition Raises $36,000 for Local NonProfits

We are excited to announce that the 5th Annual Eggs On the Beach Big Green Egg cooking competition raised $36,000 for local non-profit organizations, including our two nonprofit partners—Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and Food for Thought. Held at Seascape Resort, we were excited to welcome more than 750 tasters, honorary judges, nearly 30 cook teams, sponsors, and supporters.

Both Food for Thought and the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast received a $15,000 donation as the result of the 2018 Eggs on the Beach EggFest. Located on Eglin Air Force Base, the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast provides a “home away from home” for military families so they can be together during medical treatment. Food For Thought, which manages food pantries in Santa Rosa Beach and Destin, helps fight food insecurity by providing backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare foods for more than 3,000 students each week who are dependent on free or reduced school meals.

We attribute the success to our amazing cook teams and volunteers. We have worked hard to create the best food festival in the area and it is because our cook teams keep raising the bar. We are humbled to see the community come together to support these great causes.

In the non-profit category, the Rotary Club of Destin earned first place and a $3,000 donation for their butterflied pork tenderloin spread with a thin layer of cream cheese and sprinkled with jalapeños and green onions then rolled up and wrapped in bacon. The dish was topped with maple-soaked pecan chips smoked on the Big Green Egg as well as a Granny Smith apple, dried cranberry, pecan, sun-dried tomatoes and Knob Creek maple bourbon chutney sauce. In second place, the Air Commando Association received a $2,000 donation toward their cause. Returning from New Orleans, Son of a Saint earned third place and a $1000 donation for their cause, which provides mentorship, education, cultural enrichment, and emotional support to fill the void for dozens of fatherless young men in New Orleans.

The People’s Choice Awards were presented to Sacred Que, Saltwater Restaurants, Inc. and Rotary Club of Destin. Sacred Que won with their bite, which was a sweet tea and bourbon brined beef tenderloin served on a toast point with a caramelized onion/shiitake mushroom/blue cheese spread, horseradish cream sauce, jalapeño pesto and harissa sauce. Their bite was also accompanied by Knob Creek infused raisin bread pudding with a bourbon icing sauce as well as Knob Creek smoked Old Fashion.

In addition, five honorary judges awarded trophies based on flavor, presentation and creativity. Judge’s Choice winners for 2018, include The Gulf Restaurant on Okaloosa Island , Saltwater Restaurants, Inc., and Sacred Que. The winning bite presented by The Gulf and featuring Knob Creek Bourbon was a glazed crispy pork belly with a pineapple and sweet pepper relish and sweet and hot roasted peanuts. The Gulf, along with the Rotary Club of Destin, will compete this week in the World Food Championship in Orange Beach.

For the best bite using Knob Creek Bourbon, United Firefighters Foundation from New Orleans earned first place. In second was the InDyne/RT&T team followed by the Rotary Club of Destin in third.

Last but certainly not least, the best booth display was presented to Saltwater Restaurants, Inc. The creative booth design and delicious bite was a big hit among tasters and judges. Their bite—a buffalo sirloin with a side shrimp served with a glass of Knob Creek Bourbon Smash—also earned them the second place People’s Choice Award and second place Judge’s Choice Award.

Eggs on the Beach event has been steadily growing over the last five years and the event has raised more than $125,000 to local non-profits since its inception in 2013. For those grillers who have dreamed of owning a Big Green Egg, a couple of gently used Demo Eggs are still on sale at Bay Breeze Patio. Click here to learn more about the Big Green Egg.

Cook Team Registration Open for 2018 Eggs On the Beach Big Green Egg Cooking Competition

Save the date! The 5th Annual “Eggs on the Beach” EggFest Cooking Competition will take place on Saturday, Sept.29, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach. As one of the official Big Green Egg Festivals held around the country, Eggs on the Beach will be a delicious event for the entire family, featuring a cooking competition, “People’s Choice Awards”, “Judges Awards”, tastings, live music, and more.

If you’re a  Big Green Egg enthusiast (aka EggHead), consider entering a cook team in this fun, friendly competition. Cook team registration is now open and we believe Eggs on the Beach keeps getting better with each passing year. This year, we’re going to add a backyard category and we’re working on some fun new elements along with a great new group of celebrity judges. Anyone who enjoys cooking on the Big Green Egg should enter a team.

Cook Teams participate by creating bite size portions of their favorite recipes to be judged by the public as well as a celebrity judge. Each team of up to six is given a large or extra-large Big Green Egg to use during the competition. Bay Breeze Patio provides the lump charcoal, fire starter, table, tent, paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins and toothpicks. Tasters vote for their favorites, as teams vie for bragging rights and prizes, including the grand prize, a brand new large Big Green Egg.

This year, teams can enter in one of three categories—the main event, backyard enthusiast and non-profit cook team. Prizes vary depending on the category. The grand prize for the main event is a large Big Green Egg (valued at $1,110), the grand prize for backyard enthusiasts is a Mini-Max portable Big Green Egg and the grand prize in the non-profit category is $3,000 donation to the charity of the team’s choice.

All proceeds from Eggs on the Beach will benefit two local charities—The Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and Food for Thought. Located on Eglin Air Force Base, the Fisher House provides a “home away from home” for military families ensuring family members can be together during treatment for serious illness or physical/occupational therapy. Food For Thought aims to end food insecurity by serving students in Okaloosa and Walton County with backpacks filled with healthy meals and snacks for nights and weekends. In addition, tickets may be purchased for a chance to win a Big Green Egg and other items donated by area businesses with these proceeds also benefiting the charity partners.

In 2017, Eggs on the Beach raised $29,000 for Fisher House and Food For Thought and another $6,000 was donated to non-profit organizations through the non-profit cook team category. In the past four years, Eggs on the Beach has raised nearly $100,000 for local charities.

For those who are interested in owning a Big Green Egg, the Demo Eggs that are used during the event will be sold in advance with nest (metal stand) and plate setter for a discounted price. Both Large and XL Eggs will be sold and all come with a limited lifetime warranty. Demo Eggs must be picked up after the event, between 4 – 5 p.m. on September 29.

Cook team registration is $50 for a team of six and each team member will receive a welcome bag, including a commemorative t-shirt and Wayne’s Get Grillin’ Rubs. Cook team fees are waived for non-profit cook teams, which are competing for a cash donation toward their cause.

Taster tickets are also on sale now with special advance pricing of $32.50/adult, $14/child (age 11-17) and kids 10 and under are free. Sponsorships are also available.

Outdoor Furniture Trends Embrace Style, Comfort and Functionality

Enhancing the patio, backyard or deck has been a growing trend in home improvement over the past few years. Improvements make the backyard more enjoyable for homeowners while adding value to the home. All signs indicate that outdoor living will continue to grow in popularity as families continue to seek ways to bring the comfort and function of indoors outside.

With the start of the new year, many homeowners are thinking about renovating their outdoor living space in preparation for spring and summer fun. If you’re in this category, you may be considering following the latest trends and designs for outdoor furniture and outdoor living. After years in the business and attending the International Casual Furniture Market in Chicago, here is what we are seeing:

Composite –Composite is made up of 100% resin, and at one time was just Adirondack Chairs. Today, Composite is everything from Adirondacks to dining to cushioned deep seating and chaise lounges.  This trend is one of the fastest growing in the U.S.  Most manufacturers are offering warranties of 20 years minimum.  At the Beach, Composite can be the most practical choice, while their wood counter parts often last only a few years in harsh coastal environments before needing repainting. At Bay Breeze Patio, we stock three manufacturers in composite and they produce 52 different colors among them. With warranties from 20 years to lifetime, Composite can make life even easier on the coast.

Teak is back with a vengeance.  Teak was almost dormant but it is back.  Straight Teak, Teak mixed with Sling Fabric, Teak Accents on Aluminum or Outdoor Wicker — it does not matter.  Teak that is harvested the right way – from FSC forests – is making its way into all kinds of furniture manufacturers.  While Teak still requires a lot of work to keep its natural color, it speaks to the organic trends that are so prevalent today.

Mixed Media – Combining materials has been an ongoing trend for a few years.  Whether it’s combining outdoor wicker with wood, cast aluminum with wicker, composite with sling, or brushed stainless steel with wood, the options are endless. There are many ways to combine materials to take a piece of furniture and achieve many different looks and styles. Fully-upholstered furniture for the outdoors was soaring a few years back and has slowed due to the maintenance involved in keeping the fabric clean outdoors. This year’s trend is embracing upholstered furniture mixed with other materials to accomplish an organic feel with less work.

Sectionals – Sectionals started trending about five years ago but have really come into their own in the last two years.  Every manufacturer we work with has found a way to turn existing lines into sectional lines.  Sectionals are all about space and coziness.  While Outdoor Wicker is the material of choice, we are starting to see more aluminum, wood and composite sectionals.  Sectionals provide the ultimate gathering spot.

Outdoor Kitchens – In most of the country homeowners can only dream of a fabulous outdoor kitchen.  On the Emerald Coast, it is a reality.  The trend is to build bigger and better outdoor kitchens and the outdoor appliance manufacturers are making it easier and more hassle free.   Outdoor Appliances have to be built – just like outdoor furniture – to hold up to the harsh elements of a coastal environment.  A Grill is just the beginning of an outdoor kitchen.  Burners, Refrigerators, Kegerators, Ice Machines, Dish Washers, Pizza Ovens, Teppanyaki Griddles, Fire Places and Fire Pits built around a variety of cabinetry choices allow homeowners to customize and personalize, creating the dream outdoor kitchen for your family.
