You know what I love about Summer? Hosting! I love to host barbecues and parties in my own backyard (especially now that we have one). That is why I decided it was time to revamp our patio with some affordable Beach Patio Decor. Luckily, I found everything I needed at my local Gordmans without breaking the bank and I thought I’d share it with you all today!
Beach Patio Decor
If you truly know me at all then you would know how OBSESSED with the color mint. In fact, obsessed in an understatement.
Mint is just a happy and beautiful color which is why I have it in some form in almost every aspect of my life including all around my home.
That probably explains why when I decided to decorate my deck in mint colored decor. I mean, beach decor with mint! 😉
With a baby on the way, I wanted a way I could update the look without having to spend a fortune. After all, we also have a puppy that thinks everything goes into her mouth – yikes!
So, I visited one of my favorite stores Gordmans, because I simply love their home decor and their prices.
Aside from the selection and price, Gordmans gets new merchandise in every week. That means if I am looking to add something new and fresh to my decor, I can take a “me day” and head out shopping each week.
During my last shopping trip, I came across several adorable display’s that gave me inspiration for the look I was going for.
At first, I really loved this display of all things Summer – watermelons, pineapple and more. Truly adorable. But since I was looking for more blue/cool tones I decided to keep looking and came across this display:
It had everything I was looking for so I got to shopping. I ended up getting:
- A fish net with seashells
- Seahorse pillows (one for each of our lounge chairs)
- A large Octopus vase
- A candle to fit inside the vase above
- A coral decoration
- A hanging wine bottle wind chime
- 3 teal rugs (to add to the overall look)
I was able to get everything above for under $125! Rugs alone can cost that much! In case you are wondering, we already had the chairs, table and the mint cups/bottle you see in the pictures. 🙂
I truly want to go back here in a few weeks and get more items to decorate our gazebo to match. I feel like these colors also compliment the browns of our home really well.
If you’re wanting to find ways to decorate your deck or patio, make sure to visit your local Gordmans.
Gordmans has amazing prices, but they also have something called their Lowest Price Guarantee. To make sure that they can give shoppers the lowest possible price, if you find a lower price somewhere else on any item you found at Gordmans, Gordmans will match the competitors’ price and they will give you a $5 Gordmans gift card!
All you have to do is show the competitor’s current ad, website or a receipt featuring an identical item, and Gordmans will match the price, plus they’ll give you a $5 Gordmans gift card. Gordmans has a page on its website that explains the Guarantee in detail – to read about it, visit: http://www.gordmans.com/guarantee.
Gordmans told me that because they want to offer their shoppers the lowest possible prices on merchandise, they watch their competitors’ prices and adjust their prices to beat them. But, with their huge assortment of merchandise, sometimes they don’t catch every item. So, Gordmans uses their Lowest Price Guarantee program as a “flag.” When you use the Lowest Price Guarantee, they are alerted and they’ll work on lowering the price on the item you price-matched. Pretty cool!
I cannot wait to see what look you create for your patio!
