Outdoor Entertaining with At Home

It’s that time of year again – summer is coming! Now that we’re finally getting into the warmer months, I’m so excited to be able to hang out outside enjoying the weather and soaking up the sun. The outdoor living room trend is making a big comeback and I’ve teamed up with At Home to share with you how to create an outdoor space that’s just as inviting as your living room! Click through to see how I transformed my patio for summer.

While I’m always in the mood for a girls night staking my claim on a local patio and drinking wine, I see a lot of sunny days spent by the pool and entertaining on my balcony with my girlfriends in my future. This spot on my patio will also be my go to for relaxing after work whether it’s with a book in hand or I’m brainstorming my latest blog post. I love all of the little elements that I’ve pulled into this space to make it feel like an extension of my living room.

Every time I step into my local At Home, I know that I’m going to find something if not a full cart considering that they have over 500 new items each week. This place is seriously my own personal playground & it won’t break the bank! First things first, you’ve got to have a bar cart (is it aggressive to have both an indoor & an outdoor bar cart?? whoops!) This steel folding tray table was exactly what my patio needed – I knew that it would be perfect the minute I saw it! I’m sure you also know by now that I love the faux greenery trend so I’ve been adding pops of greenery to my home wherever I can.
