I started working on the patio last year and I’m excited to finish it up this season with a bit more decor and fun items – I’m also on the hunt for the perfect table.. I need something big enough to house all my family when they’re over! One thing I found last year was that patio stuff sells out FAST and early, if you wait until May or June, you’ll be SOL. So don’t wait to plan out your patio.. get it ready now!
I’ll share videos of the patio once I’m back home in Connecticut, but here’s what I have from last year and am looking to add in this year too. Also, some of my favorite retailers to get both furniture and decor for outside are linked below – they have regular sales so keep your eyes open:
GET THE LOOK
COUCH // STRING LIGHTS // RUG // BLACK TASSEL PILLOW // PILLOW // FIRE PIT // RATTAN LANTERN // CONCRETE SIDE TABLE // STRIPED TOWELS // TASSEL UMBRELLA // SUN LOUNGE CHAIR // SUCCULENT // WHITE LANTERNS
My patio furniture is the brand Christopher Knight home + I scored it on sale at overstock – they have a ton of pieces on sale right now there too! Also, I LOVE these lounge chairs – they sold out last year but are back this year and are such an amazing buy. I have 4 for my pool area!
WICKER LANTERN // BLACK LANTERN // WHITE PLANTER // OUTDOOR PLANT // TIKI TORCHES // BIRD HOUSE // RATTAN LANTERN // SMALL CANDLE HOLDER // GOLD CANDLE HOLDER // WHITE CITRONELLA CANDLE // STRING LIGHTS // STRIPED PILLOW // WHITE PILLOW // GRAY TASSEL PILLOW // BLACK STRIPE PILLOW
And then here is a bunch of decor inspo for you guys – add these little things in your backyard to transform it into the resort you want! Planters, lights, fun pillows etc!
Last thing – and don’t forget this! Cover your furniture so the pieces stay longer.. I ordered mine on Amazon and just found the ones that had the right measurements for my pieces. Much cheaper than getting them from the designer of whatever furniture I picked! These also have clips so they don’t blow off in the wind. I put these on every night and it’s how I keep my white cushions in such good condition.
The big square ones fit my patio chairs – the size says air conditioner, but just check the measurements for your chairs!
