The grass is green, the skies are blue, and the temps are warm…anyone else ready for summer?! I’ve partnered with Christmas Tree Shops to update our backyard patio and get in the outdoor entertaining mode once again. Here’s a little Kickoff to Summer Backyard Bash to inspire you to get your patio and yard ready for summer fun! I’m sharing all the great things I found at Christmas Tree Shops this week to make our backyard extra festive for summer.

New Patio Furniture

First things first, we needed an outdoor table and chairs and I found this great 5-piece set by Nantucket Furniture for a great value! I love the design on the chairs and it does have a umbrella stand. My market umbrella fits perfectly for days when we need a little extra shade.

Festive Plates, Bowls, and Drinkware

I love to dress our outdoor spaces in red, white, and blue all summer long. Christmas Tree Shops already has a lot of 4th of July themed items in store and I loved this star-spangled dish set. Mason jars with festive straws make the perfect lemonade glasses. The blue acrylic goblets I can use for water glasses or for wine all summer long. Everything on this tabletop was so affordable, I was so surprised by the savings!

Summer Table Linens

I love a ticking stripe and that red and white runner was a great find and so inexpensive! The red pom-pom placemats were another value find and add a nice pop of color. Instead of traditional napkins I opted for the French stripe dish towels since I was serving lobster rolls this night.

Outdoor Patio Finds

The table and chair set was a great find! I also found an array of outdoor lighting and opted for these cafe lights to hang around our patio. For extra seating, I have bamboo chairs that I pull out for entertaining and these cute nautical rope chair pads make them so much more comfortable. I added in some buntings for some extra festive flair and can’t wait to use them on our home’s exterior under all our windows for summer holidays.

Bonus Finds

I think I say this in every post I share about Christmas Tree Shops, but I will say it again! I always find something unexpected that wasn’t on my list. This trip I had to get that sailboat basket and I love it as bread basket. The wicker lighthouse they had in store once again this season. The utensil carrier is handy and I love that the star cutouts match the dishware. The plaid to-go containers are perfect for serving potato salad or sending home leftovers with guests. The blue rope lanterns add a nice nautical touch. My tip: add sand and a glass votive for an extra beach-y vibe!
