It looks like the warm weather is finally here to stay! Our forecast is calling for days in the 80’s and I’m super excited! One of my favorite parts of my home is the massive backyard. It’s so nice to have the boys play set and trampoline in one area and then have a dedicated deck with enough space for a dining area and an outdoor living room. I haven’t really changed it since the reveal a couple of years ago, but when Katrina from Chic Little House asked me to be a part of her Summer in Style Outdoor Edition blog hop I knew I wanted to switch things up a little bit and show my take on colorful outdoor living!
I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go in, but after spotting this placemat I had my jumping off point. My sectional already had orange cushions, that could stay the same and my beautiful DIY striped coffee table had the same amazing bold blue. Now I just needed some accessories to finish up the new look!
I love a good lemonade on a hot summer day and I wanted to share a fun addition I do to mine when I’m entertaining. Take any store bought lemonade. I’m a big fans of the ones available at Trader Joes. Then take fruit and cut it up into teeny pieces. Pour your lemonade into your mason jar and then add a mix of fruit into the mix. Make sure you have large straws so that you can get delightful fruit pieces as you sip. It is amazing! If I’m feeling extra fun you can add some champagne or bubbly seltzer to your lemonade.
Moving onto the dining area of our deck I set up a drink station on the diy outdoor bar we made a couple of years ago that is still going strong!
Are you loving my DIY fresh pineapple vase? Such an easy and delicious DIY!
The dining area got a little love with a area rug!
I had fallen out of love with hydrangeas until I got sucked back in when I saw them in these amazing colors. The blue was so bold and the green had a lime color look, which I knew would work perfectly in the space. They are still going strong days later and I’m back in love with hydrangeas.
I hope you enjoyed the new look!
