Backyard Patio Ideas

Are you ready for the weekend?!  Here in Atlanta, everyone's a buzz about the upcoming super bowl.  While we're not a typical football watching family, we're excited to take part of the festivities and cheer on our hometown team.  And with this current southern weather, I'm contemplating taking our party outdoors...it was in the 70's yesterday, and I'm not kidding when I say I almost turned on the ac!  But either way, I'm looking forward to warmer days and taking our dinners outdoors.  Last fall we did this side patio (that fence hack made such a BIG difference to the space) and I have to say we thoroughly love our new outdoor living space.  I've always been a big fan of director chairs (I had them in my college apartment), so when I originally came across these online, I became obsessed with wanting them for our outdoor space.  But alas, there was no way I could justify their price point on our budget.  So, I was elated when I found ours on an end of summer clearance (which is THE BEST time to find good deals on outdoor furniture!).  If you're looking for some now, I love the price of these &  the bamboo look on these.  This set (includes table + 6 chairs) is another good price considering all you get!

The key to create this look is to stay within a honey cedar tone.  I originally liked the idea of striped seats, inspired by these,(this pairs price point is much friendlier), but in wanting to keep the space neutral and more versatile we finalized on white.  They fold up great, making for easy and compact storage, plus those seats are a breeze to take off and wash!  I love them against our table (similiar one here), and the added beer garden bench (this similiar one is currently on sale!)  Add some string lights, (I recommend checking these and these out), and what you've got is an inviting space for successful al fresco dinners!  In the meantime, I'm off to look up some football watching appetizers and heck...I may just order an outdoor heater. (currently got my eye on this)!  Happy weekend friends...Go Falcons!
