When I think of getting my home ready for the summer, I think of things that would be practical but also help create a fun summer atmosphere. Today I’m sharing with you my absolute favorite summer essentials for the home! 

Bar Cart

I love the idea of a bar cart for the summer! You could take almost any kind of cart you find, spray paint it a fun color and add drinks, decorative straws and other decor pieces to accessorize it. This not only adds some fun to your home or backyard, but it also can be very helpful when it comes to entertaining guests! 

Insect and Mosquito Trap

Mosquitos can sure be a pain to deal with – especially if you live in Texas! This ½ Acre Insect and Mosquito Trap is perfect for outdoor or indoor insect and mosquito extermination. It’s an environmentally friendly way to trap bugs from up to a half acre without zapping, harmful chemicals or propane. 


Brighten up your decor

 I find adding pops of color around my home, a great way to bring in the summer! Whether it be bright pillows, colorful flowers or fun rugs, adding color really creates the “fun summer atmosphere” that I strive for! 

Outdoor lights- Nothing creates an incredible atmosphere, the way that lights do! Adding string lights, lanterns or even candles to your home can really help create a relaxing mood- which is what summer is all about! 


Plastic dinnerware 

During the Summer, I’m always entertaining outside! When it comes to serving food and drinks in your backyard, plastic dinnerware is the way to go! Not only are they practical, but you can find some really fun colored cups and plates that will help brighten up your outdoor decor!


The summer time is all about getting outside, enjoying the sunny days and spending time with friends and family! I believe that these few essentials can not only give your home the perfect touch it needs, but also help you enjoy your summer even more!
