Today I am sharing our big backyard patio oasis and showing you how to set up your own patio decked out for the warm weather. Updated May 2021.
Many of you have messaged me on Instagram (after my Instagram stories yesterday showing you our disaster of a pool house filled with all of this furniture) asking where to buy all of our patio furniture and decor. I am the worst at updating and providing shopping links :(. It’s so time consuming so I am sorry!
I updated all of the product shopping links and they are linked below. This was our patio last year and this coming weekend, we will be setting it up for this year! BUT I just spend the last 2 hours updating all the shopping links and they will definitely sell out soon (the umbrella and loungers are on sale!)
*see my affiliate disclosure page if you are not sure what affiliate links are. Basically if you buy something from a link, I may make a few pennies. So thanks in advance!
Like I said, I am not the best at sharing affiliate links but since you asked, I am sharing! 🙂
How to decorate an outdoor patio like resort!
FLASH BACK a couple years ago: Do you remember the swamp monster in our backyard post and the 19.5 hours of power washing the pavers around the pool and patio?
If you are a new follower, be sure to check out the yard and pool when we first bought the house.
Here is the patio before:
Here is the patio after.
Where to buy affordable outdoor wicker furniture?
This wicker set is a set that my mom bought from my brother a couple years ago when he purchased a larger set for his patio.
I get so many questions about where to buy outdoor wicker furniture on a budget so I rounded up some of my favorites.
How to make your backyard look like a resort
These floor plants (behind the chairs) are faux from Homegoods. I love that they look real and don’t require watering!
Decorating tip: creating a backyard patio oasis or resort feel can be accomplished by adding floor plants (mix faux and real), colorful annuals, throw pillows, throw blankets, lanterns, hanging lights and an area rug.
Greenery (especially floor plants) can really transform your patio and add a lush tropical feel.

Here is a picture of the patio before (early Spring). It’s certainly not looking like a backyard patio oasis now is it! -ha
The patio before we power washed.
If you have an area of your patio that requires shade, I cannot say enough good things about this oversized umbrella.
You can get the umbrella at Walmart and it’s free delivery.

Backyard patio oasis after:
Our backyard patio is now a really cool and relaxing place to hang out and we love the resort style feel.
Don’t miss our classy patriotic patio setup (click here) (I’m showing you easy ways to decorate with red, white and blue) with the furniture completely switched around and a very cool 4th of July beverage station!
Last summer we spread paver sand over the patio (after power washing) as the weeds were taking over so I am hoping this year, the weeds poking through will be minimal.
The unique metal planters I planned to use as trash cans lined with a trash bag for parties but they were too cute to not use all the time so they became planters.

So what do you think of our backyard patio oasis?
Are you inspired to tackle your backyard patio, pool or deck and create your own resort style space?
The biggest expense is outdoor furniture and maybe a rug or two. Once those those are purchased, you will have them year after year so the fun little touches like, plants, greens and throw pillows are definitely more affordable each year.
