BY: Aimee Algas Alker | Jun 28, 2018

When creating a real backyard escape, a plastic table and chairs just doesn't cut it. But putting together your backyard decor doesn't have to break the bank. We looked to Instagram for inspiration for backyard decorating ideas and pulled together some suggestions from Groupon Goods to make them your own.

Even if the closest body of water is a kiddie pool, a backyard cabana can still be a place of respite. If you can't afford to build a cabana in your backyard, you can create the next best thing by installing this pergola. Hang curtains to waft lazily in the wind, and add to the vacation vibe with the palm fronds on the pillow cover.
