I’m a summer person – love the sunshine, the long days, and no sign of rain for weeks. I even love it more than (dare I say it) fall. Probably because in central California, there is no such thing as a fall season, and its just summer for most months out of the year. I dream of the day we can have a beautiful and relaxing backyard with a pool and large patio, but it needs some work. So for now, I’m sharing my outdoor summertime favorites. (post contains affiliate links, see disclosure)
string lights | umbrella | outdoor rug | planter | lanterns | chair | firepit | s’mores station | white dining chair | dining table | serving spoons | serving bowl | candles | Light wood tones, black accessories, and white accents are my favorite for decorating outdoors. Add a little greenery and you have the perfect relaxing and tranquil backyard.
S’mores are definitely a summertime favorite around our house. From the classic sandwich to ice cream flavors, and even a Starbucks S’ mores Frap. I just can’t get enough and this s’mores station is perfect. Ps have you seen Chris Love Julia’s s’more’s recipe roundup?
As I mentioned before, I can’t wait o start working on our outdoor areas. Probably later this year or early next year when the weather is cool. The patio furniture we have now is heavy and dark. But I’ll definitely be referring to this mood board in the future for my outdoor summertime favorites.
