Guys, I’m so not ready for summer to be over yet. (Be forewarned, this may be a continuing DD theme until Labor Day.) I feel like I need to have one final hurrah before I can let go. You know, a little swimming, a little grilling, a little family fun. Enter the Umbra Pongo Ping Pong Game.

umbra portable ping pongGone are the days of wasting space with a dedicated ping pong surface. This portable set (including a net) would be perfect for a beach house, picnic tables in the park, heck! Even your own dining room table is waiting to be transformed.* Still too utilitarian-looking for your taste? Start with this set, then upgrade your paddles to the sporty, striped Henri Bendel models, or the pretty prints of Trina Turk. Did I also mention this would be a perfect hostess gift? Particularly if I am your hostess? You’re welcome.

*(Got kids and/or plenty of Legos handy? Try this clever DIY ping pong net.)

    I really enjoyed the Dina's Party – Love theme parties and although I couldn't be as extravagant as Dina , I found so many ideas that I could employ – can't wait until the next episode – Thanks HGTV

    I hear you. I will cling to the last days of summer like a spider monkey.

    That's the second spider monkey reference I've heard this week. Weird. Is there something going on in the zietgeist I'm unaware of? Three spider monkey references, and I'll know it's a sign.
    BTW – you don't have to cling until after the autumn equinox! (Although, I can feel it, fall is already here!)

      It's been raining here for days, and today is the first break we've had…and may have for a while. I cling, cling to the summer sun and its life-giving vitamin D. (And then I slather SPF 50 on, of course.)
