I decided that my backyard needed a lift before our Fourth of July celebrations. With the holiday falling on a Wednesday this year, we’re making our festivities intimate with a simple family barbeque.
Our patio is home to an outdoor living set with couch, table and chairs, but I wanted to add a small dining table where we can sit, each and watch the fireworks while enjoying the plants and flowers in full bloom.
I assessed the area to determine the criteria for our perfect patio set. I wanted a small round table with chairs to fit in with the outdoor couch set we have now.
My “before” backyard patio
Before heading out to the store, I went online to Sears Style Hub and shopped for my new patio table and chairs. With many options, including sizes, shapes and styles, I quickly found the perfect set for us. Ordering online was simple, and most importantly- free for any patio set over $299. And, online ordering can be done from home or from the store if your local Sears does not carry your patio set in the store.
I decided that a simple but elegant dark resin table and chairs matched perfectly. The fact it was on sale was a nice bonus! Once the table arrived, assembly was easy. Then it was time to create my Fourth of July backyard “inspiration” with this year’s theme being intimate and simple.
A perfect fit! Time to start decorating for dinner.
To add to the Fourth of July celebration, Sears is having a sale on the Menlo 5-piece patio for half price with free shipping. And, by using the Sears Shop Your Way Rewards program, you earn points towards discounts on future purchases. That’s a sweet deal.

Time to start the grill!
In keeping in mind my “intimate and simple” themed barbeque, I made this super easy- but festive punch. I used Crystal Light in Pomegranate flavor and added fresh blueberries.
Crystal Light in Pomegranate flavor is quickly transformed into a festive beverage by adding blueberries.
Now it’s time for our distinguished guests to enjoy their Fourth of July barbeque.
Now it’s a party!
Whatever your plans are for Fourth of July, you can always use a little inspiration. Whether inspiration comes with a new recipe, a trip or a backyard lift, I hope this Fourth of July is the best yet for you and your family!
