Summer Essentials for entertaining and outdoor living


It’s time for some summer fun and I have rounded up some of my favorite budget-friendly essentials for entertaining and outdoor living.  I am a big fan of Walmart Home products and own and use so many of these products already in my home with plans to add more.  #sponsored 


Summer entertaining & Patio essentials

First up let’s talk entertaining- whether that be outside around the BBQ grill or inside summer just brings with it some special foods like grilling, homemade ice cream, and lemonade. 

Whip up some homemade icecream or sorbet in this icecream maker and then serve it in these cute bowls. 

For grilling, this cutting board, BBQ tools, and meat thermometer would make any grill master happy!  Ordering one of those meat thermometer’s for my husband for sure – all of these are such budget-friendly pieces!

I own 2 of these round rattan trays – they are made out of resin so look like rattan but meant to be exposed to the outdoors!  Perfect for serving food, corralling s’more ingredients, or I use one of mine filled with beautiful plants in my favorite Walmart planters as the centerpiece on our outdoor table.  The price is just unbeatable too – order an extra one or two as gifts!


And then you’ll need a serving dispenser to fill with lemonade or water or my personal favorite southern sweet tea and this classic one is just as pretty as it is functional and such a great priceWhite dishes are always a staple and this set is so pretty too!  They come in solid red and yellow too if you wanted to mix and match some pieces. 

If you are like me and spend every minute possible outside during the warm months than creating an outdoor oasis is a necessity.  But it doesn’t have to break the bank either!  I own and love so many of these products and plan to order a few more.

We have 4 of those Adirondack chairs and they are sooo comfortable!  Cozy it up with a pillow, side table, and an umbrella for shade.  We use them year-round at the firepit during the fall and winter and at the pool for extra seating during the summer. 

Or grab this egg chair, a big outdoor floor poof, and that gorgeous tassel outdoor pillow for some ultimate summer relaxation.  The baskets are perfect to corral pool towels or even put a plant in

And finally that wall clock – seriously you won’t believe the price and it’s huge!  Meant for outside but perfect for indoor use too.  Sure wish I had a big exterior wall to hang it on cause I would order it for sure!


Summer fun whether it’s relaxing outdoors or grilling out and making ice cream doesn’t have to be hard or cost a ton – hope you found some items to help you create a fun space with good food in your back yard!
