Backyard Patio Furniture Links + Plant List

Thursday, May 16

If you've been following along on IG (@worlds.of.hope), you will have seen that we recently overhauled our backyard and transformed it in to the European Garden of our dreams! It was a bit jungle like before, with weeds and dirt and overgrown plants, and now it has more of an elegant and peaceful feel! We put in a beautiful pool, raised beds and garden, a diamond stamped patio, and lots and lots of landscaping. It's stilllll very much a work in progress, but if you saw the before + after pictures, you'll know that a ton has been done! 

Patio Furniture

Since sharing on IG, I've had so many people ask me for links for our patio furniture. We found some items new, but a lot of it we found on FB Marketplace! I've linked everything below! 

Better Homes & Gardens Lilah 4 Piece Outdoor Conversation Set

I saw this set online and knew it was the one! It has the look of Serena and Lily, without the hefty price tag! It truly is an amazing deal! The cushions are SO comfy, and the furniture feels sturdy! We will have this for years to come!

AMMSUN 7ft Patio Umbrella with Fringe Outdoor Tassel
Holy Moly, these umbrellas are SO cute! I've received so many compliments on them already, and they are actually under $100 which is amazing. I bought two, and we have one in our pool! 

I actually found 8 of these chairs on Facebook Marketplace and almost died of happiness! I've been scouting on these wicker chairs, as they are on every English and French manor house on Pinterest haha! Kev was an angel and drove 2 hours to get them (which the kids and I, haha it was an adventure!) 

Jeco Wicker Chair, Set of 2
I needed a few chairs for the fire pit area, and saw these on FBMP as well! However, I did happen to find them on Amazon for you. They are really comfy, fit the cottage vibe, and hold up to the elements outside! 


The second most asked question I receive is if I would share what plants we used to make our English cottage garden dreams come true! We live in zone 9, so I wanted to curate the cottage plants that would actually do well in our zone....Here is my list! 

Iceberg Roses

Lambs Ear



Boxwood Hedges







Privet 'Texanum' (Which are the big green topiaries on either side of our backdoor. We found them at Home Depot last year, and they've held up great!) 

Lots of Herbs (Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Parsley, Mint)

Vegetable Garden (Tomatoes, Zucchini, Cucumber, Strawberries)

I hope this is helpful! Happy almost Summer!! xoxo
