Patio Re-fresh

Friday, April 8, 2016

It's getting to be that time of year again (finally), where the temps are slowly rising and hopefully the rain has washed all the pollen away - yuck! With that being said, it is also that time of the year when I need to get my patio back in order...this includes dusting off the cob webs, finally getting a new umbrella because let's face it, my faded light green going on 3 years has seen better days. I also added some FUN pops of pink with cushions that I am very excited about! Check out my inspiration behind our new patio look...

I have been searching for the perfect patio umbrella and have finally found it! I scored this one from one of my favorite go to sites, Joss and Main. I also got my cushions from there as well. 

I've been researching about potted palm trees and their care. I would love to have some in some big black planters flanking our back doors. If the palms do not work out, I can always do ferns. 

You cannot go wrong with a garden seat. I somehow found mine at none other, Big Lots, for a whopping $40. You can a lot of times find them at Homegoods or TJ Maxx too. I have linked one to Ballard Designs here also. 

Candle lanterns give such a good ambiance and I think they are so pretty going down steps from your front porch or in our case to our patio. I've linked some options here, here and here

I knew I wanted to add more light to the backyard and I've always had a love for string lights. I found some backyard inspiration below but have yet to actually pull the trigger and purchase. I'm still doing my research (if you do not know by now, I RESEARCH everything, reviews - you name it) and it takes me a little bit longer to pull the trigger and buy but more times than not, I am very happy with the outcome - and plus, I despise having to return things. Check out these awesome backyards that incorporated string lights. All images were found via pinterest.

My umbrella and cushions came in this week..yay...but I'm going to wait until after the weekend to put up since it is supposed to be 20mph winds - no bueno. I'll post an update once they're up! 

Anywho... I'll be at market in ATL all day Saturday finishing up buying for Fall 2016 for the store while the hubs is at the Masters (no fair)! Hope everyone has a safe and fun-filled weekend!
