How to Upgrade your Outdoor Space — Summer 2019

Summer is here, which means parties and cookouts on that patio of yours! Patios, porches, and backyards may be the perfect place for hanging out, but after a long winter, it may be time for some upgrades. Wondering about how to update & renovate your outdoor hangout on a budget? The Flower Lady can help!

Outdoor Patio Rugs

  • Our new patio rugs add a vibrant touch to any porch and patio set. Great outdoors (or indoors), these easy to clean rugs are made from recycled plastic bottles and are fade resistant. Just spray off with the hose, sweep with a broom, or even flip sides because they are dual-sided! So cute & the perfect finishing touch. Have a dock at your cottage? Use one of our outdoor rugs to turn your dock into an upbeat party zone!

Lighting, Lighting, & Lighting!

  • Sometimes a campfire isn’t enough lighting after the sunsets. Add a simple yet modern touch, by adding a solar-powered outdoor lantern. These lights are great in any sunny spot during the day, and illuminate any space with their warm glow in the evenings. Each light can be hung easily and adjusted by the attached chain and hook.


  • Not only are baskets an incredibly trendy touch for your outdoor space, but they’re also great for practical storage. The Flower Lady has a vast selection of baskets in different shapes, sizes & even colors.

Outdoor Blankets

  • Great for a night under the stars, or a picnic! These outdoor blankets are durable and soft. Perfect to store in your new basket from The Flower Lady, as well.

Garden Essentials

  • From pots & planters, garden décor, & the perfect gloves, The Flower Lady has it all. Some of the newest summer trends are hanging planters. Choose from a variety of planters to find the perfect piece to display your plants, or add some hand-tuned wind chimes to add a whimsical feel!

Outdoor Plants, Hanging Baskets & Succulent Bowls

  • It’s not too late to find the perfect plants & flowers for outside your home or garden. The Flower Lady has a selection of succulent bowls, aloe plants, hanging baskets, green plants, flowers, & more. Check out or location to see what’s in stock! Don’t see what you’re looking for?
