Patio Lovin’

It’s summer time and the living is easy! There are a lot of things I love about spring and summer, but entertaining outdoors is definitely a highlight. My fiancé and I love to BBQ and enjoy long, sangria filled days. If you are like most twenty-somethings, entertaining outdoors can sometimes be a challenge on small apartment balconies. Here are some easy ideas to make the most of your summer entertainment space:

Perennials
I love the idea of having a lush, beautiful garden. The only problem is I don’t have a green thumb WHATSOEVER. That’s why we opt for perennials – bright, fun flowers that last ALL SUMMER LONG. No fuss, no muss and easy to maintain.

Make it Cozy!
The more comfortable your guests feel, the longer the party will go on! Depending on your budget, decide what’s important to you. Do you love the look of tea lights all around? Do you want to invest in a heater? Or is high end furniture the way to go? There are so many different ways to personalize your space!

 Define your Style
Your outdoor space should also be a reflection of you! Spice it up with fun accessories like outdoor rugs or cute trinkets. Homesense has tons of affordable options that fit all kinds of spaces!
