I love how this relaxing patio packs in so many containers – I see a plethora of succulents, a couple of boxwoods, a tall yucca plant, and even an orange tree tucked away in there! My dream patio would definitely have containers galore, just like this. With plenty of places to sit, the red cushions and lanterns lend an inviting, relaxed look.
To recreate this look, feel free to combine different colors and shapes in your patio furniture. A sleek black chair from Pottery Barn or Ikea looks great paired with the traditional teak furniture pictured above. I love the addition of mismatched, colorful lanterns too. A couple of modern strawberry pots, a succulent bowl and an orange tree complete the look for this container-covered patio! Enjoy!

With the warm weather that has quickly covered the southern states, our whole neighborhood is now out and and about all the time! I was chatting with my across-the-street-neighbor a few days ago and we started talking about doing a block party for our street to get everybody together and celebrating the start of summer. I immediately dreamed up a few table set ups and lantern hanging spots for an outdoor gathering. Of course, true form for a gardener, I’m looking for concrete and terra cotta pots and lots of plant life to decorate the tables! Doesn’t this white, blue and yellow color scheme just feel like summer? I love it. Keep scrolling to see how you can get the look!
I love the whole outdoor party setting, don’t you? Colorful lanterns, lots of plants, and bright chairs around a farmhouse table. Check out the links below to find this look! Here’s another farmhouse table option and you can always D-I-Y!
