Whether you are heading out of town or not this summer, you want your backyard to be an oasis that can transport you to summer vacay mode. Let’s look at all of the fun items you can get to make you feel like you are taking a fun vacay from the comfort of your own home. These are also great items for any outdoor entertaining you have coming up. After you update your backyard, you will need an excuse to plan a party!
Backyard Summer Essentials
First thing’s first, let’s talk daytime backyard essentials. To beat the heat, you need water activities. If you have access to a pool, then you will need fun pool activities. This inflatable chair is perfect for lounging, plus it has cupholders. This 2-in-1 volleyball and pong set and this floating putting green are both fun things to do in the pool. I have many more inflatable options below. Towels are also must-have. I love these luxurious beach towels. Another favorite beach towel are these Weezie beach towels. They’re so soft and will make you feel like you’re on a vacation at a resort. You’ll also want this bluetooth speaker to get the music pumping. Don’t forget you sunscreen! Be sure to read up on my list of the best sunscreens.
Once the sun starts to set, you will need the proper ambiance in your backyard. These string lights are so pretty and will really set the mood. I also love having chic patio furniture, like this wicker egg chair. You also need items for dining al fresco. These woven placemats, these ceramic plates and these rattan beaded napkin rings are a few items that will make your tablescape perfect for summer. These seashell tumblers are also a super cute way to serve drinks outside. As for entertainment, this oversized four in a row game, this mega Jenga game, and this corn hole game set are all great options.
