I’ve spent so much time on the construction of the inside of the Jenny-Mike house, but let’s not forget the backyard! I’m originally from the desert so I love all the trees in College Station! I fully intend on having my share of backyard soirees!
Pinterest is full of excellent pins on backyard parties! It’s a great place to go to escape a mundane weekday.
So many fabulous ideas to bring people together and enjoy nature!
There are even a few choices from different cool blogs on how to build your own outdoor movie screen! I LOVE this idea! I hosted a Christmas party one year and everyone watched “Elf” outside under big cozy blankets! So much fun! I wish I had pics of that!
And of course, where there is a movie there is POPCORN! This is so cute! A popcorn bar!!
This little party is adorable! I bet these kids had the time of their life! So precious! And inspiring!
And with an outdoor movie (especially in the colder months) comes a fire of some sort, and with a fire comes S’MORES!! Love this S’mores bar!

It doesn’t always have to be party time though! Or so they say. Haha! A backyard also needs a few little corners to unwind from this busy life…
Isn’t this little spot just calling your name! I love the lights strung across the top!
A stone fire pit with stone benches, would make you forget you were in a backyard! Reminds of Texas campgrounds.
This backyard is so beautiful with the lights wrapping the trees. I also love the gilded bamboo stools, but that’s neither here nor there. 🙂
For my family, a swimming pool is almost more important than the house. So we’ve spent some time researching different pools.
What else could you ask for, right? A pool/movie combo! Imagine watching Jaws while floating in a dark pool at night!? We’ve actually done that too!
Although, the pool is a simple design, in combination with that gazebo/outdoor living room, it is stunning!
I love the beach entry on this one!
What’s not to love about this one? Your own lazy river?? Yes, please!!
I’m always drawn to this one! It looks like a lake at the bottom of a mountain in Wyoming! So gorgeous!
Every time I’m at a resort, I always take note of my favorite things! A swim-up bar is always at the top of that list! Except I need the bar tender to come with it!
This one is great and reminds me of a Texas Hill Country pool design (It may be). The fire pit next to the hot tub is a draw for lots of relaxation and conversation!
For this Teaser Tuesday I’m revealing the very beginning stages of the Jenny-Mike backyard design…
I’m really excited about the pool design! Brannon Wright of Clear Water Pools is awesome to work with! I highly recommend him if you’re in my neck of the woods.
He’s put together a beautiful design and he is on-the-ball! Can’t wait to show you the finished product!
What do you think? What’s your favorite backyard inspiration?
