Managing outdoor spaces can seem like a never-ending job – mowing, weeding and the rest! – so often there’s not much thought put into decorating our outdoor spaces. But we’re here to show you it doesn’t have to take much time or money to add style and ambiance!
Install outdoor lighting
One of the quickest and most effective ways to enhance your outdoors is with lighting. These solar stake lights are just $10 for a 10 pack or $3 each, are super easy to assemble and are ideal for along a garden bed or path. Because they’re solar powered, they automatically turn on at night and recharge during the day.
Style your tabletop
If you have an outdoor dining or coffee table why not create a small vignette like we did? These jars filled with fairy lights are also solar powered and cost just $6! We teamed it with an artificial cactus and citronella candle in a rustic cement pot.
You could opt for candles in glass windbreakers, flowers in decorative pots or even small statues to decorate your table.
Pots, pots and more pots
Pot plants are a flexible way to style your outdoors.
We created a pot plant stand that will be a fusion of a veggie garden and plant stand – it’s a great idea for renters who may not have space to plant a veggie garden, for people with back issues that need plants at a more accessible height or for people with pets that make having an in-ground veggie garden difficult.
This stand features mainly pots from The Reject Shop including the white egg-shaped pots in various sizes and the green planter trough with saucer that we have put seedlings in.
Decorative sculptures and figurines
Even if you prefer a more minimalist style, it can be fun to incorporate a few quirky decorative pieces in your outdoors. We’ve selected several animal figurines that are nestled amongst the pots.
This season there’s a huge selection of products from The Reject Shop including gumboot pot plants, animal sculptures, lace laser cut metal pots and watering cans and so much more.
Style your outdoor furniture with cushions. We found this pastel cushion for just $9 from The Reject Shop and it ties in perfectly with the soft mint accent colours in our outdoor dining area.
There are plenty of outdoor cushions and seat pads to choose from so you can find one to suit your colour direction.
Plant bulbs for Spring now
As much as we love décor, few things are as gorgeous as the beauty of Mother Nature.
Get your garden ready to burst into bloom by planting bulbs now before winter sets in.
Buying plants from the nursery can quickly add up but you can keep costs down by planting bulbs ahead of time. There are all sorts of varieties to choose from but we just love the layers upon layers of petals of Ranunculus flowers.
