I would love to have an outdoor space to entertain. I can see it in my head. But since I’m always working with unlimited wants and a limited budget, some things must stay on the wish list while I get busy on indoor projects. Still, not everything for the outdoors has to be expensive! Take a peek at some of the great finds that don’t break the bank (at least, not one of them by itself – but I can’t ever seem to make a trip to Target under $200, so I still have to avoid it altogether).
outdoor entertaining cheap finds

1 & 2  I’ve been seeing these butterfly and ikat lumbar pillows on tons of great outdoor projects lately. Normally, I would hate these simply for that reason. Still want ’em.

3  Seeing where I’m walking is awesome. Running my mower into the spikey landscape lights is not. These stay flat on the ground but still do the job.

4  Can you believe these are salt and pepper shakers? Super cute.

5  I would love to string a bunch of these solar-powered tea lights on branches in the back yard for lots of late-night color.

6  I heard on the radio that only 25% of people clean their grills. Gross. This (rather large) scrubber uses steam (making cleaning easy) and is dishwasher safe.

7  Love a little yellow – especially in outdoor silverware.

8  I can imagine these in a cluster & creating a little fireside glow (with a few great brews, naturally).

What outdoor decor have you got your eye on lately?

  1. What an inspiring list! It makes me want to run out and go shopping. ;) I'd never heard of the recessed lights, though…what a great idea!

  2. Thanks Colleen! I feel the same way, which is why I'm going nowhere near these stores for a month until my budget can handle it!
