I love dining on my patio. It’s nice and shaded and we have bird feeders outside so while we sit and dine, I can enjoy my hummingbirds and robins, and my beautiful baby woodpeckers!
My patio area was lacking a little bit, so I created a few quick diy summer patio dining tips to spruce up the area. Mine was in need of some serious TLC so I set out to Sam’s Club to find some cute things to spruce it up with.
Before we could decorate the patio, we had to clean it up to begin with. The pollen had literally covered the table, and after the long harsh winter, the seats were a little dirty, so my daughter and I sat out to clean off our patio set.
I picked this set up at a yard sale for about $20. It fits perfectly on our back porch and offers some great seating. It is very plain however, so I knew it needed some kind of color.
I found these adorable indoor/outdoor pillows at Sam’s Club. They were about $19 for the pair, so I bought a pack of them to see how I liked them on the patio. They were perfect to bring in that little pop of color on my bland patio.
For an extra pop of color, we purchased a citronella candle in the coral. We light this to keep the bugs and mosquitoes away while we are outside dining.
While we were at Sam’s getting some cute DIY decor for my porch, we headed over to the Cafe to purchase one of the Family pizza combo kits they have.
I love that they have this combo available. Now, instead of having to rush home and cook something to eat, I can simply serve it on the patio. It makes the perfect way to serve a hot and ready dinner in minutes — without all the hassle.
The combo pack comes with a 16″ pizza — they have many to choose from. Then you get an order of breadsticks with marinara sauce, 6 cookies, and a 2 liter of Coca-Cola. All I have to do is pick it up and take it home to eat!
Once I bring it home, I set out our dinner plates on the patio and load everyone up!
The plates I found at a party store on the clearance rack. They are more festive than normal paper plates, which really helps dress up the patio area for dining purposes.
Dining out on the patio is fun and offers lots of late night conversations for us. We love to sit out there and enjoy the evening. It’s the perfect way to entertain, or end a busy work day.
