Summer in the Country

There is a lot to look forward to for summer… more lazy, relaxing days, warm weather and easy, laid back decor ideas! This month’s issue of Country Living is jam packed with great summer looks and ideas. It all looks so effortless and fun- which I love!

These sweet, adorable, lavender filled pouches are a great way to add a country summer flair to your drawers or for your guests. By using leftover fabrics and buttons, these fragrant strawberries can be made. The template and instructions can be found here.

I love the look of galvanized metal! These planters from Pottery Barn would make a great addition to a backyard party! Add some drinks, towels or even pretty plants. An even better idea though, came from this month’s issue of Country Living. They suggest turning the extra large planter upside down, for an instant chic side table!

 Speaking of outdoor entertaining, who could resist these adorable salad tongs! The pitchfork and shovel shape reminds me of summer gardening.

This large shark head from PB Teen is a fun way to decorate for the summer! It can be used for a fun game of beanbag toss or to store pool towels!

There you have it! Country Living pulls out all the stops to make this summer a blast!
Do you have a fun way to get ready and inspired for summer?
