Entertaining On The Patio

This is the second segment of our monthly Creative DIY Team’s themed posts. And this month we’ve chosen Outdoor Entertaining.

For entertaining, I go right outside on the patio. It is the perfect place to ask my neighbors over for watermelon on a hot summer day.

The view to the gardens is the perfect backdrop.
You can hear the water gardens bubbling in the background, the birds chirping in the trees.
While enjoying cold fresh watermelon with guests.

Now go check out my team mates’ summer entertaining posts by clicking on their name…


I hope you enjoyed our four individual takes on outdoor entertaining!



  1. A lovely peaceful place to relax with friends! Love the idea of the sound of water trickling and birds singing and all the lush planting, as well as having a nice shady spot to sit too.

  2. What a great patio you have created for having fun. I love the big green tent or umbrella (not sure what its called ;-D)

    Your plants look great! Happy Summer!


  3. I would love to come over for watermelon and sit on your patio any day Brenda..I am just amazed at how you have transformed this space…The other ladies have done a great job as well..I also love the green Buddha..can you share where you got him?

  4. A magazine should do an article about how you transformed your cement patio into such a lush paradise.

  5. Your patio is a beautiful place, you've done a fantastic job. The furniture you chose, and the canopy against the fence, and the multitude of plants all work together to make it look so cozy and inviting. You ought to be featured in a prominent magazine about homes and gardens!

  6. You have such a beautiful outdoor space Brenda. I would love to sit and have a piece of that yummy watermelon and enjoy your garden.
    Very pretty. I am hoping over to check out the other garden spaces.

  7. Your beautiful patio adds to the total square footage of your apartment. All your guests should feel very lucky to enjoy all your hard work and design. If I lived closer,r I would contribute fresh red raspberries to afternoon tea.

  8. The patio with all the beautiful plants is definitely where it's at for us too, Brenda. It's hotter than a pistol but we just can't stay inside. 🙂
