Fall Patio Decor for a Party

Hello there! It’s finally feeling like Fall weather here in California. In typical California style, it’s chilly in the morning, and then super hot in the afternoons. It makes it hard to dress for the day! Good thing I have so much fun dressing up my outdoor spaces! Can’t go wrong there!

My side yard is a space that we created out of open space.  The yard is sizable, but when we bought the house, the side of our corner house was open to the sidewalk and busy street. We knew we quickly wanted to change that! So, we had a tall, solid fence built to enclose the area.  This gave us a whole new outdoor living area to use (and decorate)! Let me show you what I’ve been up to our there, but first…take a look at what the house (yard) looked like ‘before.’

Here is what the space looks like now.  The tone for decorating the side yard for Fall was set when I went to HomeGoods and found these two gorgeous, rich purple/plum pillows! I also found a pretty close match in a table runner too! I’ve used them to decorate for a little dinner party.  When I’m not having a party, these pieces will for sure be used inside my house.

I also had a little fun choosing some florals to coordinate and accentuate the look.  Plum dahlias, pale lavender hydrangeas, and my favorite, eucalyptus!

With the warm weather, we enjoy eating dinners out in the yard during the week, and almost every meal out there on the weekends.  As you can guess, I decided to dress my table to compliment my florals and new accessories.

I choose artichokes and pomegranates, because they are beautiful and delicious Fall treats! I love to collect interesting wood cutting boards and serving pieces to display food. HomeGoods has a lot of unique serveware for any style and allows you to get creative with your food displays!

We also love to hang out in this space after the sun sets! We light all the candles, put some music on, and just relax!

The weather is mild enough to keep things outside, but I’ve decided to bring my new pieces in for some good indoor use, in between parties! I just can’t get enough of this color right now! It is so pretty and really brings the Fall mood to any room.
