Memorial Day Weekend is here already which means less time at the office and more time outside – in theory, at least. We’ve compiled our seasonal must-haves for your backyard, roof, balcony and even windowsill to make the most of your Summer Fridays and beyond.
Gingham is the official pattern of summer, so stock up on these napkins to start the season off right. They are a chic addition to your dinner table and pair perfectly with your favorite bottle of rosé and an over-stuffed lobster roll.
This ultimate summer set up comes with a table and four matching chairs to use for all your outdoor dining and drinking needs. The best part? Its hassle-free assembly is great for those surprisingly warm days that always crop up during the off-season too.
Nothing screams “party” like a colorful chip-and-dip platter. This cheery set comes with movable pieces so you can stay on top of refills without disrupting the vibe. It makes a great hostess gift, too.
Cool down with a glass of ice cold…whatever you want! From water to cocktails, this pitcher pours your drink of choice while keeping it cool the entire time. Ideal for those hot summer days outside or when the A/C gives out.
Add a little something to your backyard with this set of string lights. They brighten up any porch, patio or teeny-tiny apartment balcony for a hint of romance that’ll make summer even hotter this year.
Keep ’em cold when the sun is really beating down and you need your go-to refreshment. Or roll up your towels for a versatile storage option by the pool. Either way, this galvanized steel-and-rope look is here to stay and adds a rustic touch to any aesthetic.
As far as backyard buys are concerned, this barbecue tool set is a no-brainer. Plus, its handy travel case means you can take your BBQ skills all over town. Get ready for an influx of invitations coming your way this summer.
