Preparing the Backyard for Sunny Days!

Preparing the Backyard for Sunny Days!

Who is looking forward to nice weather? Me! Me! (jumping up and down). I’ve seen SNOW in some yards around the country lately, so I really have nothing to complain about. We’ve already had some sun, but don’t be jealous, just live vicariously :).

When the sun emerges, I LOVE having special spots where I can head out the yard to enjoy coffee, a picnic lunch, or even just to relax.

A couple of weeks ago I found a , pillows and the most adorable little with a table and two chairs at and they were PERFECT for the areas I envisioned.

My favorite thing about having a nice sized backyard is there is plenty of room to create several different zones for activities. Yet the cool thing is that you can create a charming destination even on a little patch of grass. You don’t need a fancy patio or big yard for this! And you don’t need a ton of money, thanks to tjmaxx.com!

When the sun came out last week, I was practically skipping through the yard I was so happy! I found a SUPER adorable picnic basket at that had inspired me for summer picnics. Seattle is full of amazing parks and we even have two beaches within just a few minutes of our home, so it’s safe to say this basket will be put to good use this spring and summer!

How could you not be giddy with a basket this sweet?

Besides its cute watermelon fabric interior, it came with all the fun plates, cutlery, a tablecloth and napkins, goblets and a bottle opener.

The is one of my favorite finds, isn’t it the coolest with that trendy wood stand? I’ve been on the hunt for one like this for awhile. You know what is even better? It was only $12.99!

Just as I would for a room in the house, of course I wanted to add a little mood lighting in this space. This wood lantern is perfect and I love the rope handle on it. (Plus, I added a battery operated candle to make this a romantic little spot at dusk).

I have to say I’ve dreamed about a for our backyard for years. Who wouldn’t want to head to a relaxing destination like this for a lazy spring afternoon? Now, I haven’t quite mastered the art of hammock balancing, but once I get the hang of it I think I could get used to this quaint napping spot by our camellia.

I also got a few for maximum comfort and a little extra style, too.

Even if you have to wait a little longer for spring weather, maybe you’ll find a little sunshine in a basket like I did!

Delighting in Decorating + Spring Mug Rack

 

When I put away the clean dishes after our brunch last weekend, I hung some of our new blue coffee cups on our mug rack. It made me so happy to see how springy the rack looked with this particular mix of mugs!

It’s such a small thing, but isn’t finding a bit of delight in your home what spring decorating is all about?

It’s the little delights like enjoying a mix of organic elements, seeing a green plant here or there, the joy of a refreshed color palette (whatever your favorites are), a room after some spring cleaning, lightening up all the winter layers, but it all adds up to US feeling refreshed and ready to head out into the SUNSHINE!

How are you bringing spring to your house?

PS. Thank you all for the sweet comments on our dining room and dishes! I know know about you, but after a season where I’ve been been exceptionally busy, I find it’s just so refreshing be able to do something simple like set a pretty table and sit down to enjoy it!
