Goodbye dull, dreary, blistery weather…hello sunshine, warmth, and longer spring days! With the nicer weather finally here to stay (fingers crossed), it’s the perfect time to spruce up your patio, balcony, or yard so you are ready for whatever spring vibes may bring. Feel prepared to say YES to hosting friends and family and keep the good times rolling with these fun, five outdoor décor ideas:
Show off with a new sign
Nothing says welcome like a welcoming sign…sometimes literally! Signs are a fantastic way to add whimsy, make a statement about your values, and display the things that matter most to your family. You can DIY something for your front porch out of spare wood to add a little extra curb appeal or find cute signs in our gift shop to add pops of colour to your patio, porch, or backyard fence. This is your sign to add a sign!
Light up the night
Adding some ambient lighting is not only functional but extremely enchanting. Whether you string solar lights, Edison bulbs, or use futuristic LED rope lighting, you can hang lights everywhere from fences and gazebos to patios and along walkways. Looking to up the fairy-tale factor? Soft fairy lights hung throughout trees will make you feel like your yard is transformed into a magical forest escape!
Wreaths for every occasion
When you think about a wreath on your front door, you probably think about the Christmas season…but there’s no rule saying they are only for December! Spice up your space with a themed wreath to match the current season and change it up as the different times of year roll through. Feeling a little crafty? Gather twigs, pinecones, and other spring treasures. Use a hot glue gun to add them onto a foam wreath starter and you are ready to hang.
Be ready to serve a round
Outdoor bars are about as classy as it gets. If you don’t have a large chunk of change to drop on this pricey feature, we can help you with a more creative but just as fun of an option. A compact folding shelf will provide just the right amount of space for a small cutting board and a few glasses…maybe even a couple of appetizers or two should the mood hit. Want a little cocktail table? A barrel makes the perfect rustic addition to your backyard bar setup.
Pile on the pillows
If there is one EASY way to change up the feel of your outdoor lounge area, it’s with a new set of throw pillows. There is no shortage of the styles, colours, sizes, and options you can find just about everywhere that sells outdoor accessories. Don’t be afraid to be bold. Adding bright bursts of colour really brings a space to life. The great thing is, if you get bored of your colour choices, next year you can switch it up again for a whole new aesthetic.
