The hanging baskets were planted with sweet potato vine, new guinea impatiens, and a little yellow trailing flower that I can't remember the name of. They took a hit during the stretch of 100+ degree days we had, but they're starting to perk up again.
I also have a couple of large planters with multi colored coleus, which I love because they seem to do well where ever I put them.
The new patio furniture came from Target.com and I'm very happy with it. Its very sturdy, not crazy expensive, and the cushions are thick and well made with piped edges. We also have the chaise...so comfy! I accented with my bright pink throw pillows that I made for the living room of the tiny house. The color is perfect for the deck and plays off the beautiful crepe myrtle.
Thanks for touring the deck with me! Stay cool and have a great weekend, everyone!

I've been able to find several more since that day at flea markets and antique stores. So far, they have all been $10.00 or less! I love the planter shapes and use them to hold all those little items that seem to appear on our kitchen window sill (extra keys, restuarant gift cards, pocket knife, etc.).
Stay cool everyone and have a great week!
