Bistro Lights

These aren't just any bistro lights; these stringed beauties [4] ($25-$50) are illuminated by Edison bulbs — two trends in one!

Add an Umbrella

Beat the heat with a pop of color with a patterned patio umbrella [5] ($22, originally $45).

Add a Fresh Touch

Plants are the best way to accessorize a patio, and these barrel pots [6] ($28-$78) come in different sizes.

Switch Up Your Seating

For extra seating, use a pouf [7] ($50) or two. Get your money's worth by having them double as ottomans and side tables.

Toss In Vibrant Hues

Make your patio furniture more comfortable by adding seat cushions [8] ($5, originally $10) that also offer a hint of pattern.

Replace Old Furniture

Time to trade in that sun-faded furniture for a new patio set [9] ($50).

Bring the Indoors Out

Make your patio an extension of your home with a patio rug [10] ($66). It's an unexpected touch that will add texture, pattern, and color.

Light Up Space

Give your patio a decorative touch with a few glass lanterns [11] ($12, originally $18). They are a versatile accent that can be used as a centerpiece or grouped around your patio for ambience.
