Decorating your Patio for Summer

If you’re preparing for a summer filled with barbecues, dinners outside and simply enjoying the sunshine, it’s time to make sure you have a party-ready entertaining area. We’ve compiled easy ways to jazz up any patio, deck or porch for a season full of soaking up the warm weather!

Unexpected Seating

Hammock, pouf, bean bag chair – whatever suits your fancy, adding in some unconventional seating creates some personality in your patio area. To host larger groups, you could invest in an outdoor sectional or loveseat. Overstock has some great options.

Pops of Color
Whether it’s a bright pillow or a colorful Adirondack-style chair, a little bit of color can make a big difference in livening up your patio. Consider bright dining and entertaining accessories to adorn your outdoor dining space. Check out the platters, table runners, plates and more from World Market.

DIY Furniture
There are a myriad of easy DIY outdoor furniture tutorials on Pinterest that could compliment your entertaining space. For example, if you don’t want to drop the money on a farmhouse-style table, you could find an old table top and add salvaged spindles to the table, and then paint or stain according to your taste.

Outdoor Rug
In order to create a cozier feel, add a colorful outdoor rug under your patio table or chairs. Not only will it add a pop of color, but it also fosters a more inviting space. World Market has some great options.

String Lights
Because is any patio complete without string lights? Adding twinkling string lights has the ability to make any entertaining space more magical! If you want a more out-of-the-box string light option, World Market also has Pineapple, Fish and Cactus string lights!
