A Colorful Outdoor Summer

Welcome to my colorful, outdoor summer tour where I joined some wonderful bloggers to showcase our homes for summer! You can find the link to their summer tour at the end of this post! ๐Ÿ’•

Although inside of our home is mostly white and neutrals....but our outdoor doesn't have to be! We've planted some beautiful colorful plants in our courtyard and can't wait to show you in this blog post!

My husband and I like to enjoy a drink out here in our courtyard..either a cup of coffee or a glass of red ๐ŸทOne of our favorites reds is Silver Oak.

I've always been a fan of black and white! When I first saw this bistro set, I knew it would make a perfect sitting area in our court yard! The black and white umbrella I ordered separately and is currently sold out but I linked a similar umbrella for you... The umbrella pole and stand I also ordered separately on line. FYI; since I was looking for a small umbrella; this is 5 ft wide patio umbrella which most standard umbrellas are between 7-9ft. {Pillows are from Home Goods}.

Flowers! Lets talk about some of the flowers we planted! These are some petunias we planted in these pots. Love the vibrant colors! ๐ŸŒบ

A pop of fuscia PINK!

Bougainvilleas we have on each side of the arbor & love the vibrant color!

Next, we are taking a short trip to our forest themed backyard!

We just finished adding this beautiful cedar gazebo and are enjoying our new sitting area. But we still have some work to do as in finding furniture pieces, and more planting. If you don't already know, I LOVE everything about nature! ๐ŸŒฟ

I love this bridge that leads to the forest trees, I really think the bridge is the focal point of this backyard ๐ŸŒฒ

Just a little simple sweet treats for a summer table scape ๐Ÿ‹ got some yummy lemonade, fruits, lemons, I also got a store bought carrot cake which my kids love and made a delicious cheese board.

You cant go wrong with bright yellow and white pom poms!! ๐Ÿ’›


THANK YOU again for visiting!! I hope you all enjoyed my colorful summer tour! Til next time, friends!
