Backyard Fall Sitting Area with Hanging Lanterns
Fall is here in Wisconsin! Now that the weather is changing I wanted to create a cozy, sitting area at our Duplex. Our guests have been loving the outdoor spaces this year, and we have a little sitting area under a gazebo we put up a few years back. I was thrilled when I found these Rattan LED Lanterns from the Better Homes & Gardens line, and thought it would be so fun to try hanging them. The come with artificial flicker candles inside – so perfect for evenings in the backyard. DIY TIP: To achieve this look, set some rope at varying lengths to hang the lanterns, and then put the battery powered candle on timer mode to turn on when it gets dark.
Nothing says September more than Mums! I got a trio in autumnal colors to spice up our planters. I really enjoy creating levels by putting some plants in standing planter, with some sitting on the patio. I added another in a footer planter on the side-table. The pop of color is perfect for the more neutral furniture in the space.
I always have good luck finding picnic baskets at Goodwill, and I love to use them as decor, inside and outside! Set a few out as storage, and to add some texture to a space. Or I also think they would look really pretty on a porch stacked with a bunch of pumpkins too!
