It’s that time… the weather is finally warming up, we’re in the mood for intimate gatherings, and eating al fresco under the sun and stars. Is there anything more magical than sharing a chilled rosè (or delicious non-alcoholic beverage) with friends at the park, beach, or backyard? We think not and if you’re planning a special dinner party or soiree soon then it’s safe to say you have a lot to do. But don’t stress, because these recipes are easy and delicious, and we’ve rounded up the best affordable outdoor furniture, décor, and tableware so you can create the chicest space on a budget. Because a good time shouldn’t cost you!

Most of these pieces were also featured in Camille’s recent Mother’s Day picnic—so if you haven’t yet, head on over to see how all of this outdoor furniture came to life, then keep reading to shop the look!
