Patio Season

|
I'm not a fan of summer. There. I said it. I really, really dislike it. I hate feeling sweaty and sticky within five minutes of leaving my house. I hate all the insects getting in my house, on my patio and just generally annoying me. And I hate places (and uber drivers) that don't crank up the air conditioning. 

Negatives aside, I absolutely love the colours in summer. Whether it's adding flower pots to spruce up your patio, or tending to the perennials in your established garden, I love sitting on the patio and admiring my handiwork. We have never had a set of outdoor dishes that matched--we've just picked up bits and pieces over the years, and while everything worked, it wasn't aesthetically pleasing (can you even use it if it isn't Instagrammable?) So a few days ago I hit up Home Sense to find some new items to spruce up the patio!

I went in thinking that I wanted some pineapple and palm leaf items, but I fell in love with these succulent plates! I think the patterns and colours of the plates pair perfectly with the pineapples on the glasses. While they didn't have any palm printed items, they had a ton of succulent accessories, and a lot more pineapples, watermelons and flamingo printed things. I wanted everything! I need to hit another location soon though, because they only had the one pillow, and I really want at least one more (it's so padded and comfortable).

I'm definitely not finished with the patio. I think a nice rug would be a great addition to the patio, especially because the stones can get so hot to walk across in the summer. I'm loving the simplicity of this Wayfair one, and the neutral colours would be a great starting point if I wanted to change up the plates in a few years. These pillows would also go so well with the rug, but the palm print ones are right up my alley! I'm also loving these palm printed ones from Sears and this one from H&M Home!



Do you have a patio? What are you most excited about this summer?
