Yes, yes, we know much of the country is still covered in a beautiful blanket of fluffy white snow (read: nasty, muddy gray slush), but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream of the warm weather to come. Here’s a list of everything you need to stock up on to throw the best outdoor soirée your block has ever seen. And guess what? They are all Target party supplies, so they are super cheap (without looking like it).
This summer, trade in that beat-up plastic camping cooler for one of these sleek 6-gallon tubs. The gold-painted handles pop against the basin’s millennial pink sheen while the scalloped rim and colored tassels add a bit of flare. All you need is a bag of ice and a few bottles of crisp rosé (see below) and you’re good to go.
What pairs better with sunny weather than a glass of rosé? The rosé enthusiasts behind Instagram account @yeswayrose have finally decided to create their own wine. It might not be the most sophisticated bottle on the block, but hey, at $12.99 a pop, it’s definitely fit for a crowd.($12.99; Target stores)
Set up shop with one of these bright, cheery patio tables. They're ideal for cramped spaces like balconies, front porches, and apartment courtyards. While each table conveniently folds flat for storage, year-round patio chillers will be happy to know it's made from fade-, rust-, and weather-resistant material.($45; Target stores)
