Backyard Accessories for Outdoor Living

I’m so excited to show you two of my new favorite backyard accessories for outdoor living.  Our back patio is one of our favorite hangout spots.  I like to look for items that will make it feel more like a living room.  When I saw this galvanized tray, I knew it was a must have.  I was totally #HomeGoodsHappy.


I’m sure my galvanized tray will circulate throughout my house, but for now, it’s holding my pretty glass bottles, aka mosquito repellent torches.  And it’s a great landing spot for my quick fix mason jar flower arrangements when hosting friends.

My other recent fun find is two super cute and comfy cushions for my lounge chairs.   I wanted high quality cushions with a somewhat monochromatic look and a good price.  I looked everywhere for cushions to update these loungers.  Many of the cushions were so expensive it would have made more sense to completely replace my outdoor furniture.   If you’re looking for something similar, I’ll save you both time and energy, just go to HomeGoods.

When I locked eyes on these beauties, I was so relieved!  They met my criteria and the price was so much better than what I’d seen elsewhere.  My little girl and I love chilling on our new stylish cushions.

Sweet tea, strawberries and cream are our favorite.

  1. It is always difficult when it costs more to update and/or fix something than to buy a new version. Thank goodness for Home Goods and a few other discount places. Unfortunately for me (fortunately for my husband), the nearest Home Goods is an hour and a half away from my house. I can only go when I am driving to Los Angeles for some reason. Oh well. Congrats on the great find. It looks good.
