And lucky for me, transforming my outdoor space into a stylish oasis doesn’t have to break the bank. With Walmart’s extensive range of décor and furniture, you can refresh your patio on any budget. Whether you prefer a contemporary look, bohemian vibes, or a modern farmhouse feel, Walmart has all the necessary items to give it a fashionable and welcoming makeover. The best part is that you can grab everything just in time for your next get-together. If you’re unsure of how to tie it all together, I’m sharing my picks that’ll set the stage for any memorable gathering under the sun.

Furniture & Decor

Don’t underestimate the impact of well-chosen decor pieces when it comes to creating enjoyable moments in your outdoor space. I like to focus on cozy elements, such as poufs and cushions, to create an area where people will actually want to sit back and unwind. I also recommend this firepit set at Walmart for that warm, inviting atmosphere.

Sleek serving trays and textured tumblers are a surefire way to elevate your outdoor entertaining game. This bed tray makes a great complement to any dinner party. You can use it to serve up party snacks and drinks when you’re entertaining or as a decorative coffee table tray indoors. I love how the legs fold up for easy storage.

Nothing says summer like classic snacks. Smores, roasted marshmallows and a good popcorn mix are tried-and-true snacks that work for both small get-togethers or larger gatherings. After years of hosting, I know they’ll always be a hit, keeping everyone satisfied throughout the festivities. Not only that but they’re incredibly easy to find at Walmart – and if you have a Plus membership, then you can easily get them delivered to your doorstep.
