The long-awaited summer is finally here and we are ready to soak up every ounce of it! That means countless hours spent playing in the yard, hosting barbecues, sitting by the fire, and making memories that will last a lifetime. Our outdoor living spaces serve as the background for so many of these priceless summer memories and we want these areas of our homes looking and functioning at their best. Here are our 7 favorite must-haves for sprucing up your outdoor living spaces.
2. ESSENTIAL OIL INCENSE
Our Essential Oil Incense is sort of our secret weapon on many fronts in our outdoor spaces. Not only does the aroma bring warmth and atmosphere to an outdoor gathering, but it also serves as a natural insect repellent for your plants and guests! Place one in an incense holder or even directly into a plant’s soil and enjoy everything that these therapeutic-grade essential oil sticks have to offer.
3. WATERING CAN
The only thing better than having outdoor thriving plants is a cute watering can to match. Our White Watering Can is the perfect finishing touch to any balcony or patio that is home to thriving plants.
4. TWINKLE LIGHTS
Nothing sets the mood on a warm summer night like the twinkling of some string lights. We love our Napa Night Sky Indoor/Outdoor String Lights for this! Drape them across the top of a pergola or balcony, or wrap them around the branches of a tree to create a magical feeling in any outdoor setting.
5. OUTDOOR STOOL
No outdoor living area is complete without seating for family and friends. We love our Moxie Outdoor Stool for its size and versatility. Use it as the main seating on a small balcony or as overflow seating in a large outdoor living space, this guy can fit in just about anywhere!
6. GARDENING INSPO
We always love a little garden/potting inspo around here! Getting creative in the garden comes easy to some and not so easy to others, and we love flipping through the pages of this book to get our creative juices flowing!
7. FAUX STEMS
Last but not least - for our friends who just can’t (or can’t be bothered) to keep a plant alive all through the summer - we’ve got you covered. We love using faux stems, branches, and succulents to bring some color to our outdoor space! Our favorite pieces are our Tillandsias, Eremurus Stems, King Protea Stems, Wild Berry Stems, and Trailing Succulents.
From updating a few planters and flower pots to sprucing up a tree with some twinkle lights, making those outdoor spaces feel intentional and special will make the memories that are created in them that much sweeter.
