Happy Hump Day, friends! I just finished shooting this month’s Amazon Fashion Finds post… and ohemgee it’s good!! You definitely don’t want to miss it this Friday. I’ve also got some exciting updates on the GxHSP ‘Celebrate Summer’ Collection, so stay tuned in the coming days for that!
Did you notice the first few months of quarantine felt like years, but all of a sudden it’s flying by? I don’t even remember spring, and now it’s full-blown summer. There’s no question our backyard is now the most-used space in our house, from game time to dinner time…we’re always outside! So to make summer-at-home more fun, I scoured Amazon for the cutest and most-practical additions to my outdoor entertaining!
These fun finds will brighten any outdoor space!
one // Colorful Dish Set // All my favorite colors in a single set of melamine dishes! The colors and patterns are gorgeous, and you get four full sets for a great price.
two // White Dish Set // If you like a more subtle palette, these melamine dinner plates look like paper but are reusable! Perfect for easy meals or snacks indoors and out!
three // Melamine Serving Platter // So many fun pattern options for this serving platter! Throw all your burger fixings on this tray to enjoy a meal on the patio this summer.
four // String Lights // These lights transformed our patio, and evenings outside are so much more fun now! The lights are less harsh than overhead, and the price is right!
five // Napkins // IN LOVE with the colors on these napkins! They just make me happy and would be a fun table addition.
six // Fairy Jar Lights // These jars can be hung up along your fence, outline your walkway, or as a simple centerpiece… and are just so cute!
seven // Cooler Side Table // This handy table pulls double duty… it’s a cocktail table and a cooler! Keep it close to the pool or patio chairs for easy access to cold beverages! Check out how many reviews it has!!
eight // Chilled Appetizer Platter // Keep all your yummy snacks and dips chilled with this double-layer appetizer tray! I love the dividers for a range of serving options.
nine // Portable Food Carriers // This gadget has different options to carry all the yummy party foods! From deviled eggs to cupcakes to a veggie tray, it’s an all-in-one storage caddy!
ten // Slim Can Koozies // This pack of six koozies fits all your slim cans! I love the bright colors, which also serve as drink markers (I call pink!).
eleven // Paper Straws // Fun straws always elevate your party supplies, and this pack can be recycled after use. Win-win!
twelve // Plastic Wine Glasses // Celebrate happy hour and keep it safe with no glass, these stylish wine glasses are actually plastic!
thirteen // Tablecloth // Tablecloths are the fastest way to transform any table, and this one has an elastic trim to keep it firmly in place.
fourteen // Outdoor Fan // It’s a no brainer to have a fan on your patio in the summertime, especially during our hot Texas heat! This one can stay on the floor but can also be mounted, which is genius!
fifteen // Single Serve Food Baskets // These grab and go baskets are perfect for hungry teenagers! They work as snack trays for your family movie night, too! We use them for cookouts, and they stack for easy storage.
sixteen // Pineapple Torches // What a darling addition to your outdoor tablescape! These pineapple torches are cute, but also keep the bugs away!
seventeen // Margarita Set // This five piece margarita set includes the pitcher and four glasses, and it’s all outdoor-friendly. Plus, it’s Kate Spade, so of course it’s cute!
eighteen // Mesh Food Tents // Keep your plates and platters covered from bugs and sneaky snackers! This pack of six mesh tents is under $15 and collapses to store easily in a small space.
