Prettying Up Your Patio – On a Budget

patio decor

If there is one place we love to spend our time here at Target Made Me Do It [aside from the aisles of Target of course] it is the great outdoors. Preferably with a mug of hot coffee in the mornings or a glass of white wine in the evenings right out our back door. Fire pit lit, more pillows than we know to do with and a giant pouf just waiting for our booty to settle into. It’s no secret that Target has a plethora of undeniably cute pieces of outdoor decor so when one of our contributors was on a mission to spruce up her space, Target was the first place she stopped. Need some outdoor decor inspiration? Here you have it. Added bonus? Many of these pieces are now discounted!

Whether your man believes it or not, you absolutely need pillows on every chair and couch possible. Do they end up on the ground? Maybe. But do they look awesome for all of your girlfriends who come over and “ooooh” and “ahhhh” over every one of them? Duh. While there are so many great decorative outdoor pillows to choose from, we were particularly smitten by these navy and orange pillows, “have a seat and stay a while” and of course – the beloved lobster.


The fun doesn’t stop with pillows though, oh no it doesn’t. Remember that statement about settling your booty into a pouf? Add that to the necessary list. For a more neutral look we decided on this natural and cream pouf to complete our comfy seating area.


Speaking of seating, have you stumbled across the POLYWOOD Adirondack Chairs at your local Target store yet? With styles exclusive to Target [and the 13 color options to choose from] they are one of the better purchases we’ve made in the outdoor department. Weather resistant, made from recycled materials and fold able for easy storage you will find yourself questioning whether or not you can swap out all of your indoor furniture for these comfortable beauties.


Of course no outdoor patio is finished without the fun little decor and candles so we added those to the cart as well. Speaking of cart, it looked something like this before we were even done. Sorry husband.


Back to the decor though. For starters, you are going to need furniture pieces for these cute little candles and what not to sit on. We love this wicker storage side table for both functional and look purposes, not to mention it’s price of under $50! Bad weather on the horizon? Stick of all of your cute decor pieces inside and you’re golden. About those cute little pieces of decor – we love these citronella candles that are available in fun colors [bye bye mosquitoes!], these fun geo battery operated metal lanterns, rattan battery operated lantern, and so many of these other awesome lantern options. Add in a few extra finishing touches of decor if your space allows and you are all set!


Other items on the list? Perhaps an outdoor rug to complete your space? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered here with an entire post centered around the best outdoor rugs here. Don’t forget to check out Target for patio umbrellas as well. You never know when you are going to need that shade in the worst way possible.

There we have it – easy and inexpensive ways to take your patio from drab to fab all thanks to Target!
