Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! We had a sunny beautiful day today after a week of clouds and it put us all in such a good mood! I finally got the outdoor entertaining area off of our kitchen nook cleaned and put together so we are officially ready for all things outdoor. May is always crazy busy so it makes summer break even more enticing. Bring it on! We are feeling ready at our house.
My new outdoor pillows added life to this space!
Loving this pillow combo. Stripes, floral and green for the win. :)
I loved the large striped outdoor pillow so much I decided to get two of the striped outdoor lumbar pillows in the same pattern for my two large chairs. They also come in a fun red stripe that’s perfect for 4th of July celebrations.
The embroidered palm tree pillow is also so good! Total vacation vibes.. we’ll take it. :)
I love to have friends over and entertain during the summer and so do my kids! It’s what we all look forward to most. Along with lazy mornings when we can all sleep in. (Lots of night owls in this house! Ha.)
I knew I wanted to pick up some kid friendly dishes this year for summer get togethers and couldn’t believe my luck when I found so many cute options on-line from Target!
What screams summer more than lemons and gingham!?
I ordered some of the fruit plates and matching lemon bowls.
The fruit plates are also adorable. So fun on a table with just one fruit or a combo of all of them! This rectangle rattan serving tray is beautiful. A great size and perfect for outdoor use. Just $13!
I love that there are so many fun ways to mix and match these cute plates!
They are melamine which makes them perfect for kids meals and snacks, but they are cute enough for adult summer get togethers too.
This woven basket caddy is too cute.. summer BBQ perfection! I know we will use it all summer long. It would make a fun gift too!
I’m slightly squinting in this pic but sidenote.. these jeans and top are 10/10! Both so flattering and cute! I got the jeans in petite and they are a perfect length to wear with flats. (I’m 5’3 and a half) :)
I snapped a selfie in my house to show the top better (ignore the paper piles behind me!). It comes in other colors but I love the blue floral. So pretty for spring and summer! I went one size bigger in this top (wearing a small) because it’s a more fitted/smaller fit. This initial pendant necklace necklace is a long time favorite (my most worn!) and would make a great mother’s day or graduation gift.
All of this cute summer serve ware is ready to party! Now we just need the food. Food! That’s always a second (or third or fourth) thought at my house.. ha. Cleaning and decorating – done. Then I’m too tired to cook and resort to ordering pizza.
But how cute would pizza look on my fun new plates!?
