    2. A set of adorable hanging pots you can attach to your balcony railing to create an inviting flower wall. If you've got a patio and no railings, it's the perfect opportunity to style a shelf with your favorite plants!

    3. String lights because absolutely no patio is complete without them! It's the perfect way to set the mood and keep the party going after the sun goes down. These lights are waterproof and come with stylish Edison bulbs!

    4. A hammock chair for when the patio is your sanctuary on a nice summer day. Can you imagine relaxing in this while reading your favorite book? Sounds like heaven!

    8. A crawfish table — an absolutely genius invention that'll turn any trash can or barrel into the *perfect* space to eat one of the best summertime meals. But honestly, you might end up eating crawfish way more often knowing you have this in your backyard!
