Patio Refresh and Outdoor Family Movie Night

This post is sponsored by Tuesday Morning.

A Patio Refresh and Getting Ready For Summer Fun

Alright friends, this last week the sun has been out non-stop… Which means it is time to open up the patio (or outdoor spaces) and start enjoying them! I had the opportunity to partner with my friends at Tuesday Morning and spruce up our backyard patio just in time for Family Movie night! This little outdoor space of ours is a little neglected and forgotten during those cold & dark winter months, so you can imagine how fun it is to freshen things up out there when the time comes! Here below you can see the “before” where it is just bare and empty (looking lonely ;)…

And here is what it looks “after”…!

We spend a lot of time out here as it is an extension to our home. In fact, we had a tv in our bedroom that we recently chose to take out and utilize it here instead. So now we have started to make this an area for our family bbq/movie nights.

This space just needed some unique pieces and accessory updates before using. Shopping at Tuesday Morning made it easy to pick out some stylish things for gathering outside!

I wanted to keep things simple and neutral in nature… Tuesday Morning had this copper tiered tray! The size was perfect for making a centerpiece that holds both greenery and food.

During the spring/summer season I like to keep things easy with using plants as centerpieces. Trays like this are perfect for just that. Plus it pulls the other copper accents throughout.

They had great entertaining platters and a variety of choices. I chose this melamine divided dish. For movie night, we like to have snacks and dessert after we enjoy our hotdogs/burgers.

That means popcorn, fruit, and cheese with honey! Oh and don’t forget the marshmallows, haha.

Like the tray, I found some elegant melamine dishes as well. I kid you not, I am amazed at how real they look (like a porcelain dish). But the best part is that all the melamine is ideal for patio entertaining and not as fragile as regular dishes! I also grabbed a set of flatware to use for outdoor entertaining. Tuesday Morning had all the necessities I had on my list to make this patio ready and infused with my personal style!

A patio refresh wouldn’t be complete without some new pillows, would it?! ;). I grabbed 4 pillows that would coordinate well with the neutrals going on out here. I found that black and stripe outdoor seat cushion and I couldn’t resist using it as a throw pillow instead! To complete an easy refresh, I picked out a new durable rug and a hairpin side table/plant stand.

Now with this refresh, we can gather in this space for lots more fun and memories to come!

  1. This looks so beautiful and cozy! I love your sectional! Do you use scotchguard on the cushions?

    1. Hi Heather, thank you very much! We have this patio covered, so we did not use scotchgurad actually. But I have heard that is always a good idea!

  2. All I can say is…..lovely! What did you use for the blue floor? I love it! Your tv on the porch is a great idea….one I never thought of….we have a screened in porch and I just might have to put a tv out there for the grandkids….just hope they don’t turn it too loud for the neighbors to hear! Maybe get some headphones for each!


    1. Hi Cindy, that is a great idea! We used concrete paint for the floor there and it has held up well! Thanks so much!

  3. You had such a great idea. We should all take advantage of the summer season. Guest for all of the family will also enjoy the outing, especially the children. HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER !

  4. Very pretty! Did I miss the stenciled tile demo or is that another rug under the smaller rug? We are in the middle of getting our patio ready for summer and I’d like to stain the concrete but my hubby sealed it already..ugh…I’m hoping to ask someone at the paint store what I can use as I don’t want to paint with our winters being so bad here.

    1. Hi Lori, I did share it a while back as it is stenciled (you can find it under patio I believe). It has held up well but has also been under cover. Good luck and thanks again!

  5. Where did you get your Tv bracket for your patio and what kind is it? That’s exactly what we need.
