SUMMER CELEBRATION

Welcome to my Summer Patio! I'm so excited to be sharing my patio with my colleagues and blogger friends at HomeGoods. At the end of this post, i'll be sharing the names and links of everyone so you can be sure to check out their home as well! They're all spectacular! 

Summer is here and I couldn't be happier. Summer is one of the most exciting seasons because it means lots of outdoor celebrations with friends and family. Isn't that the best? My backyard was a disaster before due to all the rainy weather that just ended. I gave myself the task of revamping my backyard to spend time outdoors with my kids and the 2 newest additions, my grand kids! It's truly crazy I already have 2 grand kids; that's life and we have to celebrate it and give thanks for all we have! My husband is a big fan of barbecuing during the summer. He wants to make everything outside, any excuse to cook. Well, no complaints over here! 


I hope you enjoy my post and you got some inspiration to start your backyard project for the Summer. It's time to get together with friends and family! At the end of the post, I have a giveaway for all of you to participate in where you can win a $100 Homegoods gift card! See below for more details. See you next time and Happy Summer!




My table is ready to celebrate the summer and it was a lot more simple than I thought. The plates were a great find at Home Goods and they're one of my favorite things. I can use them for many different celebrations like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, etc. They are in my favorite colors and the pattern is one that I love! #gofinding













I love to reuse things I have around the house. I love DIY and giving old things new life, like this lantern that was old and ugly. My husband almost tossed in the trash and I immediately took it back! I knew that I could make it look brand new. I love the lanterns new boho style! When it comes to Homegoods, you'll always find unexpected things.









The small benches I bought at Homegoods about two years ago. As you can imagine, they weren't looking great after a couple of years. The bottom part was a natural wood color and I couldn't decide whether to paint them or not. In the end, I decided to paint them black because the fabric I wanted to use for upholstering was black and white striped. In the end, I was so happy with the results and I absolutely love them!
