Memorial Day Weekend

We had a very busy weekend with family & friends. Did a lot of running around trying to get our backyard ready for all our guests. We did run into a problem with opening our pool :( It was green and it still hasn't changed. My husband is doing everything needed with chemicals to get the pool to turn blue (crossing fingers). Aside from that, we managed to get a lot of planting done (yay)! To be honest, this is my husbands' area. He knows his plants and has a method. I try to assist but only get so far.

On my Instagram story, I shared how I got my outdoor cushions bright white and wow, what a response from you guys. I must've received 50 direct messages asking how so here is the process below:

I also used this process not only on my black & white cushions but my cream lounge chair cushions as well (no bleach spots)!

*Comment below if you tried this and how it worked out for you.

On Sunday, we had friends over. Since it was a small dinner party outdoors, I decided to use our outdoor dining plates (sometimes I get lazy & use paper plates). The patio table you see below is brand new because our other table broke after 20 years. This table is soooooo nice. We already had the chairs from our previous set so I prayed this new table matched and it did!! The one feature I love about this table is it extends, yes, extends from 78"-90". Rarely see this in an outdoor table. I am linking it down below because it is currently on SALE.

Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend, and THANK YOU to those who have served and are serving our country. This day is about you!
