We’ve been itching to get outside! I’ve been busy fluffing the patio, come see what I did in our outdoor living area!
The weather has been amazing and we are really enjoying our outdoor space. As a brand ambassador for Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart, today I am sharing my blue heaven: Our Outdoor Living Space.
My outdoor space is my playground, I love decorating outside even more that I do inside. The fresh air and warm breeze reminds me of playing outside when we were growing up. Memories of the days when I only dreamed of owning a house and entertaining. We’ve come a long way from mud-pies on the back porch 😉
Six ways to create a cozy and inviting outdoor space:
- Add a dining space – seating area
- Add pops of color (I spray painted some Goodwill candlesticks)
- Use melamine dishes (who wants to clean up broken glass)
- Fresh flowers or potted plants
I placed a mason jar filled with water in the Better Homes and Gardens frosted hurricane candle holder. I love that soft frosted look. It will be my double duty beauty. She can be caught sporting a candle or a bunch of flowers.
The melamine pieces are new this year, but the plastic glasses are from last year. I love being able to mix and match.
The BHG Lynnhaven square dining set is beautiful and comfortable. I love the mix of woven backs, cushioned seats and metal.
A few weeks ago I built this table, it’s been busy working outside since then! Here I’m using it as a serving area and to display some of my thrifty collectables.
Blue, Aqua, Turquoise, Navy – are my favorite colors. I have a growing collection of pieces to use when entertaining.
On my patio:
I absolutely love the new rugs and string lights! Oh, those umbrellas!
They have a lot of beautiful Better Homes and Gardens items in store, but you can find a vast assortment online. Here are some of my favorites: Better Homes and Gardens
