It’s mid June and summer has yet to arrive here in WA state. Our rainy, gray season has extended way beyond it’s usual stay. I can summer coming though, and when it does I’ll be ready! Today I’m sharing How to Create a Cozy Outdoor Space with my favorite on-line finds.
We are scheduled for our first “heat wave” over the next few days. It is supposed to reach the mid 80’s – warm for us! That said I need to quickly shift into summer gear! Today I thought it would be fun to share another favorites series, how to create a cozy outdoor space. Everything I share is either in my home, on order, or something I would want in my home. I source mainly Etsy and Amazon, looking for small companies to support. Speaking of home, a quick renovation update. Our front porch is starting! I’ve been sharing a little bit in my instagram stories. As for the rest of the house .. TBD.
Set of two wicker indoor/outdoor chairs: Wicker creates a cozy farm house vibe. We’ve had our wicker chairs for years and they’ve stood the test of time.
Pillows: Don’t forget pillows for your outdoor chairs! These are made of cotton and wash well.
Placemats: I like the scalloped edges and these come in a variety of colors.
Embroidery Napkins with Scalloped Edges: This 4 pack is priced well and excellent quality. I have the placements and napkins. They’re perfect for summertime!
Ivory Flatware: Change up your flatware in the summertime! I like this ivory flatware with the scalloped cotton napkins.
Dishes: Elevate your outdoor experience by using Lenox China. Try layering dishes, using a dinner and salad plate, and then place your napkin and flatware on top. They are priced well and I use them outside and have packed them for a picnic.
Bread Basket: Line this bread basket with the napkins for a pretty summer look.
Wicker Serving Tray with Lid: Use this wicker serving tray year-round, inside or outdoors, to carry plates of appetizers or linens.
French Crock: Use a French Crock to pour your favorite beverage or use as a vase for flowers.
Candle Holders: These ornate brass candle holders are lovely and would add a romantic vibe to your outdoor experience.
Tapers: Simple tapers is all you need. Don’t forget matches!
Table Linen: Drape over your table or take to your next picnic. The pattern is so sweet and perfect for summer.
