Believe or not, the first day of summer is just a few weeks away.

And while you’re scrambling to restock your rosé inventory (#priorities) and book some Insta-worthy, long weekends away, now’s a better time than any to redecorate your outdoor space. As soon as the temperature rises—and stay there—you’re going to want to spend all your time outside, so you patio, balcony, or communal courtyard should be dressed to the nines.

Fortunately decorating your outdoor space doesn’t have to cost you a small fortune. The eight outdoor finds below look nice and are available for $50 or less.

A perfect place to rest cocktails, sunscreen, and a heaping bowl of guacamole, this pick from Project 62 is the chicest outdoor accent table we’ve seen in a long time.
