Outdoor throw pillows are a pretty, colorful way to decorate the patio on a budget.
Well spring weather still hasn’t exactly arrived for good around here, but we’ve had some nice days and have been busy in the backyard!
If you were around last year, you might remember our patio looked like this. Or if you’re new this year, welcome!

We (Kalen!) planted some more Arborvitaes next to the ones we already had (in front of that stone wall in the pic above) to give us a bit more privacy on our patio.
You can see them here:
They start small, but as long as you’re good about watering them after planting, they look great in 3 years. (They’re known to sleep in year 1, creep in year 2 and leap in year 3.) I know that seems like a long time when you’re buying them, but now that our original ones we planted have grown in, we’re so glad we got them!
We’re also thinking we’re going to get an outdoor love seat to replace those two brown chairs in the pics above to give us some more comfortable seating out here.
Either way, I love looking at outdoor throw pillows each year because there are always so many good ones! And it’s a fun, cheap way to change things up on the patio.
I’m sharing my favorite outdoor pillows below.
Each of these is under $25 (some under $15!). Aside from the usual stores, Etsy always has a good selection of outdoor pillows for a good price. Kind of an unexpected fun surprise!

A few of these come as a set of two, and most come in different color and size options so be sure to click through to see those. (I chose most of the blue/green ones for the collage below since that’s what I have my eye on!)
Which outdoor throw pillows are your faves? Who else is busting out all things patio?
You may also recall I was shopping for outdoor sconces (see all of the pretty options by clicking that link!) to replace the old awful light fixture on the side of our garage that had been there since we moved in.
We picked this one and got it hung up!
And speaking of backyard updates, we have one more. We were lucky enough to get our neighbors’ old swing set, and Kalen, of course, managed to move it and put it all back together in a few days!
Our daughter is already obsessed with it, and it’s been so much fun!
And you can see our hammock over there in the corner. We love having it on the mulch so don’t have to worry about moving it to mow the grass.
We’re excited with how the backyard is coming together and can’t wait for normal times when we can hang back there with friends and family again!
Have you been doing any backyard projects? Or have your eye on any pretty outdoor pillows?
Cheers to summer days outside! Hopefully soon!
