Patio Weather

Patio Full

Oh yes, I am loving every second I’ve been outside since the weather finally started to cooperate in Minnesota. Even though I usually complain about the weather being above 90 degrees, this year I could care less. As long as I can wear my spring/summer clothes and the sun is out, I don’t care how hot it is (Okay I might start to complain at 100 degrees or above) 😉

Anyway, last year I really wanted to update our patio decor, and stopped by HomeGoods to find these adorable lobster and crab throw pillows and this outdoor rug.

Lobster Pillow


Crab Pillow

Lobster Pillow – $16.99 Similar here, here and here

Crab Pillow – $16.99 Similar here, here and here

Outdoor Mat – $39.99 Similar here

Table and chair set – Gift from my parents when we moved in, Menards Similar here and here

Check your local HomeGoods store for these options.

I am hoping to add a couple more beach-themed items, but this decor makes me want to sit outside on our patio even more!

    Your patio’s so pretty! I really like the rug – it’s such a lovely print. (Also this is my first summer where I probably won’t have to endure 100+ temps constantly! Complaining at the 100s is perfectly justified always and forever, because those are hideous temperatures).

    Oooh, love this! What great finds, and for a reasonable price, too. So often I’m flipping through catalogs and spot so many pretty things- only to find that the outdoor rug is $499. Moving on…

    Can’t wait to see your finished patio product! But it’s looking so cute thus far. 🙂

    The Midwest has no temperate weather, amirite?! It goes from high of 50 to high of 90 INSTANTLY!

    However, those pillows make 90 degree weather seem perfectly romantic. 😉
