The sun is finally up and we don’t know about you but that means we are extra excited because patio season is back! Decorating your patio can be quite a mission, not only it takes time but it can get to be even more expensive than interior decorating. And let’s be honest, most of us sports mom have other things to do. However, here are 5 tips that will transform your patio. They are cute, they are cheap, and they give back to your team.


Pick the right rug

Rugs can be pricey but the good news is, there are very affordable options out there that will be the perfect fit for your patio. Starting with your rug is a great way to get inspired with a color theme for the rest of your outdoor furniture and accents. Our pick is this adorable palm leaves rug from Home Depot (gives up to 4% back). Cute and only $60, it sets the mood for summer and we love it!


Make it cozy


Outdoor sofas, lounges, and swings scream high-end patio but also come with a high price tag. Our affordable option are these adorable folding chairs from Home Depot for only $159. You can customize them with pillows (and switch them over whenever you need to change things up) that go along with your overall theme!  


Add heat to the mix

Nothing says summer like the taste of BBQ. Whether it’s hosting a backward summer party or just an ultra-casual dinner at home, a grill won’t do you wrong. Make sure to do your research choose the right kind of grill (charcoal, gas,..) for your needs.


Think outside of the box for your plants

Wall planters are a great way to give a cool vibe to your patio without too much effort. Let your creativity shine and pick what fits your theme better. Our hearts are set on this 3-piece triangular wall planter set from Hay Needle (gives 7% back). Not only they look great, but they also only cost $42.


Light it up

Last touch is to add some light to the mix! We think these outdoor hanging lights from Hay Needle (gives 7 back for your team) are the perfect pick to set the mood. They are only $35 and will add lots of personality to your patio.
