In OMG We Bought A House! Episode 12, we take the decorating outdoors! For mine and Joey's 7th anniversary we decided theres no better place to celebrate than home, and since the weather has been so nice we wanted to make it extra special by preparing our own lush outdoor escape. With a nice classic table and chairs, a table runner and a rug made for the outdoors, some candles, lanterns, and curtains for softening, our pergola is now one of our favorite parts of our home!
