Here in West Midtown Atlanta, there are a TON of apartment complexes popping up on nearly every corner! When Brandon and I lived in the city, we had a small, narrow balcony and to tell the truth, I didn't really know how to give it life. Now that I'm older and much wiser, I know that all it really needed was a great foundation. A cute, little bistro set is a great way to immediately inject color and personality. In the spirit of dining outside, or even enjoying a good cocktail (or cup of coffee, it you're into that sort of thing) here are a few of my favorite bistro sets... and they're all under $200! Summer's not over yet, so why not enjoy the rest of the warm weather that mother nature has to offer via a new, super cute bistro set for dining alfresco? Here are a few would recommend!
My favorites have to be #6 and #10 because I love a good, strong statement. But take note that you don't necessarily need to commit to a bold color (although that's definitely my jam) in order to create a big impact. You can always go for a neutral set and infuse it with color to add a little personality.
Here are a few other ideas on how to add a little bit of zing to your outdoor space after you get your seating together!
- throw pillows
- chair cushions
- plants and flowers
- floor and balcony railing planters
- an umbrella - this one is great for a balcony
- outdoor rugs and runners
- string lights
And if you haven't done anything with your sad, little outdoor space - now is the time! Most retailers have their outdoor stuff on sale right now, so get on it... and let me know how it turns out!
