Favorite AS Decoration

Here is a great question for all my fellow forum members; How many of you decorate the "lawn" in front of your AS when camping and if you do what is you favorite decoration? Please feel free to share photos!

Not what you are looking for but we decorate with bicycles, balls, sandbox toys, frisbees, water guns and the ever important firewood pile (my personal favorite).

My favorite decoration has to be the nose art logo on each side of the bus. Every day that Airstream One is on the road it brings comments, thumbs up from passers by, and even some late night drive by photo shootings.
I tell folks that it's the best $150 I've ever spent. That was the cost of having my graphic artist do the finished design following my art direction.

I don't have any photos just now, but we put up a white picket fence in front of our Safari to hold our small herd of pink flamingos. Don't want them to wander out, mingle with local birds, and end up with bird flu...

Oh sure Rick, ask then when it's raining huge here so I can't set my stuff up and take a picture . Mind you, to rain it means it's warm and we haven't seen snow for quite some time now which is a very good thing.

We have a pair of steamship style teak loungers that fold up. They are repro's so inexpensive and very comfortable and seem to suit the vintage of the trailer. We get a lot of comments on them. Even though they fold up nicely they are still a bit clunky to haul around so this year I suspect they will spend most of their time on the deck at home while we take chairs that fold up smaller. I'll see if I can find pictures in the pile and post them.

We we set our Lucy up at a campground, we always put out Fred and Ethel. They are our LED lighted Flamingos. If we are staying somewhere more than a day or two, we set out three other pairs of Flamingos and our M&M lights.

I usually decorate my "lawn" with a lawn chair an ice chest full of Barley soda* and myself.

*Barley, Hops and pure water put through a brewing process.

Our two pink flamingo's, some lights on the awning, a few chairs, a few tables, and a sign with our name and an outline of our AS that we had carved at the RV show this winter. Then, of course, there's us IN those chairs - chillin'!

Sometimes a little more. Depending on the Holiday, Flamingos go with just about every kind of decoration
