Happy Monday! I am so excited to finally share our fully decorated patio. When we first saw our home while house hunting, the screened in patio was a huge selling point for us. We knew it would be somewhere we would want to spend a lot of time. Our backyard is very shaded and the patio temperature feels great, even on the hottest days. There is something so Southern about a screened in patio and I love it. It’s our favorite spot to enjoy a glass of wine/cocktail or eat dinner. A lot of times on weekends when Jake is busy, I will find myself writing my blog post on the patio.
When we moved to Birmingham, we had a patio dining table, but didn’t have a patio set. One of our first home decor purchases was our patio set. We were excited to find this adorable red one at Walmart for a great price. As we were waiting for our moving truck to arrive with all our indoor furniture, we even used the set inside. We knew we wanted something bright and fun, and the red stuck out to us. I added more color in with the rug and blue pillows to make it a lively space where I would love to spend lots of time at.
I finally finished decorating the patio with my recent project, this shelf that I filled up with plants and outdoor decor. Everything is from Dollar General (except the bird house in the middle) and the plants are from Trader Joe’s. Not going to lie, originally I had 6 plants, but I have a black thumb, as a few of them died pretty quick in this Alabama heat. I have set an alarm to water them daily and they do seem to be holding up better. To finish off the patio, we bought some string lights. I can’t wait to have people over soon. The patio will be a frequently used photo spot this summer too. We are finally done decorating our home! I will share our fireplace remodel soon.
About This Outfit: This casual outfit is perfect for a night on the patio. I sized up in the skirt and notice the skirt doesn’t tuck in well with a top. It looks best with a crop top or a tied top like this. I kept it simple with casual accessories.
Jake and I went to Nashville, TN this weekend for a last minute getaway. I took the whole weekend off from posting on Instagram and it was much needed. As much as I love having a place I can use as a creative outlet, it was great to live in the moment and not worry about being on my phone the whole time. I will be sharing some Nashville content on Thursday.
