This Spring we took a trip to Maui and I wished so much that we could take some of the island spirit home and make a little oasis of our own. Lucky for me summer begins with Mother's Day and my birthday so as gifts, I filled my yard with color, relaxation, and fun.
I started by updating a garage sale urn with a little spray paint and some bright flowers for the deck. Then of course came the hammock. This was one of my favorite activities from Hawaii, just lounging lazily in the hammock. I added some fun outdoor pillows to continue with the pops of color.
Every time I lay in the hammock I am usually joined by one of my boys to snuggle. My oldest loves to push me in it, which is fantastic. Hammock + pinterest app + raspberry lemonade = perfection.
Now see that item in the upper right corner of the last hammock picture? That is the other key to a fun and relaxing summer in our outdoor space, a swing set for the boys within eye shot of the hammock. The swing set is complete with the outdoor chair pad attached at the base of the slide so my 20 month old doesn't get a jolt when he gets to the end. We learned that one quickly.
Now that I have shared what turns my backyard into my perfect summer oasis, I want to know what you’ve done to transform your backyard into your oasis. One of my lucky readers will win a $25 Sears gift card!
