Kansas Citians should feel cheated.
After a nearly nonexistent spring season, our patio and outdoor living space time seems a bit shorter this year, but luckily, the autumn season looks set to redeem us.

As temperatures cool and the weather becomes crisp and refreshing, it’s time to celebrate the glory that is outdoor living in the Midwest.
No one understands this better than Seasonal Concepts. The store, located at 10430 Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park, has had a reputation for carefully curated products for decades. Chief among those products are their selection of patio furniture, fire pits, and heaters, all of which are perfect for late fall.
Owner Marc Acord says that while the wintery spring may have robbed us of a few months, October through November has the potential to be great months for outdoor living.
“A lot of the fire pits have been designed to be more than just aesthetically pleasing. Manufacturers have honed in on how to maximize the heat output so, with the right one, or an outdoor heater, you can comfortably enjoy your outdoor living space all the way up to the holidays,” says Acord.
And while we are in the maximum enjoyment period of outdoor furniture and heating, we are also in a prime sales period as Seasonal Concepts tries to make way for their renowned Christmas stock. With the holidays quickly approaching, they are clearing the way for high-quality Christmas trees, home décor such as wreaths and garland, and storage solutions for after the holidays.
In fact, November 7th marks their 9th Annual Holiday Ladies Night Out event. The event, which runs from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. gives ladies a chance to have the first crack at the newest trends in holiday décor, all while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, wine, live music, and special in-store discounts available only during the event.
Acord says that the festive event is always a crowd pleaser.
“It becomes a social event. You have the opportunity to get inspired for your holiday decorating with your closest friends. There are demonstrations, custom items, and prizes, as well. It’s just an enjoyable way to get excited about the holidays!” he says.

Of course, as you think about holiday decorating, space must be made at home, just as it must in the showroom. Instead of merely covering your outdoor furniture and fire pits or finding a storage option, Acord suggests letting Seasonal Concepts take care of that for you with their “Worry-free winter” service.
“Worry-free winter” really does it all — your furniture will be picked up from your home, professionally cleaned, shrink wrapped, and stored until you choose to have it delivered back to your home. Instead of worrying about the damage that a harsh Missouri or Kansas winter can inflict on outdoor furniture, you can look forward to it returning to you in the spring looking better than when you finished the season before.
This sort of personalized service is precisely what sets Seasonal Concepts apart — a focus on convenience and quality for their clients. So take advantage of the gift of fall and enjoy your time outside. The holidays are coming, and Seasonal Concepts is there to help guide and assist you in all your decorating or storage needs.
