A Backyard Fit For Summer

Hello friends! It’s been quite some time since our last post, but we’re back with a slew of great tips and ideas that will inspire you to decorate your home and dress to impress!

Although this post is currently being written on a rather grey and rainy Tuesday, we’ve been blessed with hot and sunny weather for the majority of this summer. Because it’s been so nice, we’ve also gotten to enjoy our pool and our backyard, which Sue—as always!—designed to perfection.

Many of the pictures you will see below include easy crafts that Sue pulled from her favorite website Pinterest, all of which add such a cute and personal touch to an outdoor area. In addition to her DIY projects, Sue’s annual selection of pots and flowers from The Home Depot gives the backyard even more beauty and color, which really makes it feel magical.

What fun activities have y’all been up to? We’d love to hear all about it in the comments below!
