Decked Out for Summer Entertaining Part II

Colorful deck accessories

Now that my deck furniture has been freshened up with a new coat of stain, I couldn’t wait to bling out my deck with lots accessories in bright colors. Since the umbrella I bought last year is still in great shape, I chose a palette of green, orange, yellow, and red to complement the umbrella then added some fun stripes and polka dots.

The sea grass chargers and wooden napkin rings are from Pottery Barn.

The polka dotted pots from A. C. Moore came in handy for storing plastic knives, spoons, and forks.

I bought the green place mats, colorful candles, plastic plates, dip bowls, and napkins at Target. It’s a goldmine for affordable outdoor accessories.

The cute plastic pitcher was a gift from my mother. Thanks, mom!

What would I do without my two favorite stores, Target and Pottery Barn? What’s your go-to place for inexpensive outdoor accessories?

    So pretty! Especially the paper lanterns. And the bright orange cutlery, so fun! I had to laugh when you asked about our go-to-places for outdoor accessories. I don’t go outside. LOL. Not exactly true, but close enough. On the other hand, Cost Plus World Market often has pretty decorative things like paper lanterns and other colorful things. (Also international chocolates and other neat snacks! Which is why I go in there!) :)

      Is that a local store or a franchise? Can I find them online? I’ve heard folks reference “World Market” before. Is that the same store? On a side note, I went looking for a white gel pen yesterday and again today, but no luck yet. Thanks for the list of colors for the copic pens. It was very helpful!

    So festive and fun! Love all the bright colors. I can even see that cool turquoise chair peeking through way over in your yard. Looks like a great place to hang out with friends!

      It is a great place to hang out with friends, or just me and the pups.

      I love the lanterns, too. I found them in the party section at Target.
