The weather on Sunday was absolutely gorgeous for our Mother's Day celebration. It was our first outdoor party of the season, which is always exciting, knowing that the warm weather is arriving.
Since it was such a beautiful day, it was a perfect opportunity for me to take some updated photos of the backyard. Here is the grand tour...
The sectional sofa and coffee table are from Restoration Hardware. I mixed these with two chairs I picked up at Target last year on clearance.
The sectional sofa is in the shade for the majority of the day which makes it a favorite place to hang out during the summer when you are looking to escape the sun.
You can see the pizza oven in the background which was working overtime this weekend.
Here's a closer view along with the flowers we planted. They haven't filled in just yet since the weather is still a bit cold here.
The patio is multi-layered and this landing by the two sliding doors has another small seating area. We really only use the one set of sliding doors which lead to the kitchen.
Here's another view...
And here's a view from the backyard.
We also put in a firepit when we built the patio.
See that big tree in the background? A few years back the tree was all but dead. We invested in this tree and gave it deep root feedings and had it trimmed. It has filled out and it is completely heathy now.
Here's a good view of the outdoor kitchen.
Two steps lead you directly into the pool area.
Remember these chairs? These were my roadside rescues. They are still looking good.
Hopefully by Memorial day the weather will warm up enough for everyone to use the pool.

Don't forget to stop back tonight for my Swing into Spring party.
The party opens at 8pm EST. Hope to see you then.
