I am so excited because I got the patio furniture I wanted for our anniversary!!
It was so nice to sit out here after work last week and relax, relax, relax! I know that we will enjoy this furniture for years to come.
I’ve been slowly accessorizing, mostly using items we had around the house. This basket was part of a wedding gift and I’ve held on to it, never knowing exactly what to use it for. It is perfect as a table-topper/large coaster!
Here is another shot of our furniture. We’re still on the hunt for a rug. Nothing we’ve found so far is quite right with the color of the cushions. They are more minty green then blue so we’re trying to find something to offset that. The brown striped pillows came with the set. I have plans to cover them soon in a grey outdoor fabric.
The lantern came from Target and I’m in love with it! Conner’s mom gave me several of the black lanterns for Christmas and those are sitting on our front porch. I wanted a lantern for the back but wanted something a little different. Target has these right now in several sizes and it was love at first size with this one!
The outside is a distressed wicker and the inside has black wire surrounding the glass candleholder. I wasn’t sure if I should have gotten the smaller one or the even bigger one, but I think this size is perfect!
I know we will enjoy this set for a very long time. The dogs are enjoying it too – they love having a place to stretch out when they’re tired of chasing squirrels! The tables have great under storage and I know will come in handy for holding all of our extra entertaining items when friends and family come to visit.
I can’t forget patio number 2! (photo altered in Instagram on my iPhone – I love this free app!) My parents got us the orange Adirondack chairs for our anniversary! I love them and they provide the perfect look for the back of the yard. It will be so nice to have large and comfortable chairs to sit in while enjoying the fire pit. I need to get some side tables and maybe two more pillows but I love how it looks so far! Thanks mom and dad!
