Fall is just around the corner and today I wanted to share a few ways to personalize your outdoor space for the autumn season by bringing in some warm textures to your outdoor decor. This month I am partnering up with the BHG Live Better Network to show how we personalize our outdoor space with a few items that you can find at your local Walmart store.
The first step towards warming up our outdoor space was selecting an outdoor rug to go underneath our picnic table. Outdoor rugs have come such a long way, as I discovered when creating my own little she-shed this past year. They really hold up well to the elements and they add such warmth to the space that it almost feels like you are dining inside with these beneath your feet. After endless browsing, I settled on this BHG Medallion Rug in an 8×11 size, for just $159.
I’m pretty terrible at caring for plants, but I am a collector of pumpkins. To anchor the corner of my table, I filled this 16″ Bombay Decorative Planter with a few pumpkins from my growing faux pumpkin collection. I love the twiggy pumpkins against my DIY dollar store thumbtack pumpkins that I made last fall. To prop them up, I filled the bottom with paper so the pumpkins could peek out a little higher in this pretty pot.
This pot is the ultimate fake-out too because it looks like a heavy breakable ceramic pot and it is, in fact, PLASTIC and unbreakable. I can’t wait to fill it with plants that care for themselves in the summer!
Of course, nothing says warm and beautiful like the twinkle of outdoor lights. I did a ton of research on how we could mount outdoor lights over our picnic table when we didn’t have any trees to anchor them. I read this fantastic article and then was like, “I need pipe and a clasp.” I then hit myself in the head and remembered that we had two fantastic poles that were already ready on our lemonade stand that I could detach and use to hang our lights, clasp even included!
Have you ever hung outdoor lights over your table before? I’d love to hear how you anchor them if you don’t have trees! For now, this set-up worked out beautifully and you can’t beat the fact that I didn’t have to buy anything.
I am a big fan of utilizing the items we already have to charm up our outdoor space for guests. This knitted leaf centerpiece made from my yarn scraps continues to be a favorite in our home and it adds the perfect Fall touch to our outdoor table.
I hope these ideas inspire you to warm up your own outdoor space for Fall! I love these sweet and simple affordable touches that can be found at Walmart with a few of my favorite handmade accessories! I hope they inspire you too!
