What I Purchased For Our Small Patio

in , by Julie Nichols, June 27, 2022

Happy summer everyone!  Just a few weeks ago my husband cleaned up our patio space and now all it needs is some decorating love.  That's where I come in!

For our DIY bluestone patio, my plan is to maximize the 10'x10' space by setting up two different zones.  One for dining and one for lounging. 
Our Patio


I purchased a black and white patio sofa about four years ago so I thought I would make it simple and use these colors as my inspiration for the design. For me, these timeless colors add elegance and make a space look crisp and neat without much effort.   

Here is what I purchased for our small patio

This bistro table set is elegant, simple and the perfect size for just the two of us and our small patio. If you love this set as much as I do you can find it at my Amazon shop under Home Favorites.  It comes in 8 different colors if you're not so keen on the black set.


I've had my eye on a black and white striped umbrella for a long time and this one stole my heart. I love the cafe vibe it will bring to our patio.  

This patio sofa purchased four years ago is in good condition and will go back on the patio.

Decorating with pillows is the simplest and most cost-effective way to enhance a patio. I plan on bringing some of my indoor pillows outside to amp up my space.  The covers are made from durable cotton and have a zipper so if they get dirty I can easily pop them off and toss them in the wash. I just have to remember to bring them inside when it rains to protect the insert.  The pillows below are from My Shop.

We have a tiny garden next to the patio, last year I planted two tomato plants and they took over the garden and part of the patio.  So in order to prevent that from happening again this year, I will grow the tomatoes in grow bags. I purchased THESE from Amazon.

And that about wraps it up so hang tight because I'll be doing a full blog post on how I decorated our patio with all of these fabulous items.  

Please come back and Thank you for stopping by
