Deck Decorating & Updating

I'm Linking up with the blog party at Savvy Southern Style

We were in need of some updating so this year we purchased new cushions for our lawn furniture because our old set had started to fall apart. My difficulty was finding colors that would work with our pewter metal finished furniture.  I finally found this print and felt lucky because everything is geared towards decorating with the bronze toned furniture.

We also had to find an umbrella and I never thought I'd be buying a black one but I did!  
Recently we added a window box which I am loving!
I decorated this tray with an eclectric group of items. Most of it was purchased at Hobby Lobby in their clearance section.  The tray alone was only $2.40... since it's going to be outdoors I didn't want anything I paid a lot for and would worry about how it will take the weather.

 I added moss to it to pull it together.
I found this bird cage at Michaels- added some moss to it too- there is a little center cup for a candle votive.
This stone looking footed bowl was on discount too as well as the candle ($2.40) 
I had these flower pots on the glass table tops but I didn't like the constant water stains, so I brought these metal stands up on the deck and I'm happy with the results!
 This large planter has taken off nicely and makes a really bright impact on the deck which I love. 
I love to use planters to help decorate!
We made this deck large (14 x 28) when we had it re-built back in the 90's and it's used a lot in the summer months.  I consider outside areas like this to be an extension of my home and I enjoy decorating it!  Do you like to decorate your outdoor areas?
