Coral and Aqua Patio Decor Ideas and a Recipe

I’m working on creating the outdoor space of my dreams by incorporating a few new items along with projects from the past: like my thrifted candle sticks and tree stump side tables.  I shopped my house for others decor items,

that quiet honestly, I’m just tired of.

Rather than just getting rid of them, I’ll use them outside.

Patio party decor ideas and a recipeThis is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BHG at Walmart. All opinions are my own.

It’s true, I rather be outside than inside.

I had a blank patio to start with. While I was in Alabama visiting family, Barry picked up this patio set (we had already being eyeing it) and had it put together by the time I returned home. He even pressure washed the concrete. What a man!

You may recognize most of the things you see here, they were at our old house.

The candlesticks are Goodwill finds that I spruced up just for the patio.

Coral and Aqua - teal patio ideas

After taking inventory of the stuff that I shopped the house for, like this large outdoor print/painting that I scored from the clearance isle at  Hobby Lobby years ago, I knew coral would be a great color to bring in to the space! I found these Coral Reef indoor/outdoor pillows for only $13.97.

Patio serving area, silverware in buckets, aqua plates and cups

We’ve had the cooler on wheels forever, I just used the top of it as a buffet. I stacked my Galvanized Drink dispenser on top of an old minnow bucket. The height is great for getting glasses under the spigot.

Keeping with my color story, these Aqua rim melamine cups and Aqua Watercolor plates . I guess it’s more of a color addiction, than story. I can’t help myself, I love aqua!

Aqua and Coral are a few of my favorite color combinations!

 

Inexpensive chicken wire candle holders

Chicken wire Rope Handled lanterns had my name all over them! I elevated one with a little tree stump. They really keep the space casual and speak my decorating style language.

A little rustic farmhouse look.

Refreshing and Delicious Fruit Dip

Fruit Dip recipe with strawberries

This Clear serving tray is great for my fruit dip and fruit or you can use it for chips and salsa.  I love having multi-use items.

Gather a few things from your house, spray paint them and repurpose for your outdoor space. Buy a few things to freshen it up, create your dream outdoor space 🙂

You may have noticed a few other things that I stumbled across at Walmart, like the aqua striped buckets, the chalkboard galvanized buckets – that I used to hold the silverware and paper towels. Crazy cute, right? Oh and the patio set is from Sam’s Club.

  1. I seriously love everything in this space. I’m going to have to pin every picture! By the way, we make that same fruit dip, only instead of the vanilla, I add one Tbsp. Orange juice and 1 teaspoon lemon juice with a sprinkle of ground ginger. I’ll have to try it your way sometime.
