Summer is here and it’s finally gorgeous here in St. Louis – when it’s not raining! My kids love playing in our backyard but after months of cold weather and neglect, it’s time to get our house ready for summer! There’s a few things I recently bought that has brightened up my house and got it ready for summer. Just a few things from Kohl’s and you’ll be ready!
I just went up to Kohl’s this past weekend for a new American Flag. We had one but it’s pretty old and weathered so I wanted to get a brand new one to kick off Memorial Day and the summer months. This package comes with the flag, the flag pole and mounting materials so you can show off your patriotic side this summer!
Snail Watering Can
In the past two months, Hayden brought home from school two different flowers planted in containers plus I received a hanging basket for Mother’s day. I’m ashamed to say that in the past I’ve always used a cup of water or the hose to water plants. When I saw this super cute Snail Watering Can, I had to get it. It looks great in my backyard and always makes me smile.
There’s nothing better than kicking back with a cold drink while watching your kids run around the backyard at dusk – except for when the bugs come out to ruin it. That’s why I stocked up on the Sonoma Citronella Candles for my patio. They stylishly blend in while keeping the bugs at bay.
Summer Welcome Mat
Placing a summer-themed Welcome Mat at your front door is one of the easiest ways to get your house ready for summer! I love buying a bright welcome mat that puts a smile on my face each time I come home!
Investing in a fire pit will make so many great memories for your family – not only for summer nights but fall too. We love lighting up our fire pit at night while the kids play and then later roasting marshmallows. Its a great addition to your patio and a must for summer!
Bonus – Frog End Table
How CUTE is this Frog End Table?! I’m pretty sure I need this little guy holding my drinks this summer!
