Hey everyone, if you follow me Instagram, then you know I finally revealed my new backyard space this past weekend just in time for a co-ed Cinco de Mayo baby shower that Blake and I hosted for our friends. I had so much fun decorating the space and it turned out beautifully. So beautifully that I didn’t want to take it down so I left half the colorful decorations up and invited my mom and mother-in-law over for an early Mother’s Day brunch. I of course nixed the taco signs and incorporated my new MacKenzie-Childs pieces into decorations and tablescape. You’ve probably seen me use some of these classic MC pieces before in other dining tablescapes that I’ve created like this bridal brunch post and my friendsgiving post. I can always count on MacKenzie-Childs to a little a glam and whole lot of print and color to my overall design.

While I love MacKenzie-Childs’ bold statement pieces, I also love the Sweetbriar collection that I got for my wedding especially when I have a lot of color already going on in the background like I did here with the balloons and flowers. This balloon garland was leftover from my Cinco de Mayo party, but I put together these flower arrangements to tie in Mother’s Day. I purchased three different bouquets of flowers from my local grocery store and arranged them in these three vases to use as the centerpiece.

How fun are these colorful boho style pillows by MacKenzie-Childs against my white cushions? I love the texture of them too! I would keep them indoors because they aren’t meant to take on weather, but they’re super cute to bring outside for special occaisions.

My Floral DIY Chair:
To create this adorable picturesque chair, I used my Natural Rattan Fallon Cocoon Chair with Cushion that I purchased from World Market last year and wrapped it greenery and flowers from World Market. The first time I added some floral swag to the chair was for a baby shower that I hosted last month and then I decided to use it again for the Cinco de Mayo themed baby shower we just hosted over the weekend. All we did to change it up was purchase more colorful flowers from Hobby Lobby and use green floral tape and wire to attach the flowers. It’s such a fun way to incorporate more color into your decor. Plus you can always reuse it and change up the color schemes.
My backyard space isn’t completely finished yet so make sure to stay tuned for my updates on Instagram stories. Also, tomorrow I’ll be sharing my margarita and mimosa station for Mother’s Day with MacKenzie-Childs on the blog!
