We only have a handful of weekends left to relish in the good weather—naturally, a party complete with all the trimmings is in order. Of course, there are a lot of moving parts involved with hosting a large group. Not only do you have to figure out how to squeeze everyone on the guest list into your backyard, but you also need to be on top of everything—like having enough ice. Pro tip: When you think you have too much ice, buy more. Thanks to DIY & Done, Walmart’s hub for transforming outdoor spaces, keeping all the balls in the air is actually (dare we say) simple.

Personalized Galvanized Beverage Tub, Walmart ($25)
Shop

Give the party’s signature beverage the spotlight in this monogrammed tub. Not into the galvanized metal? Add a fresh coat of bright paint—we love the idea of a saturated, cobalt blue.

Cooler, Walmart ($97)
Shop

Open up fridge space by storing your other drinks in this 54-quart cooler. But that’s not all it can hold. We like to store watermelon inside prior to slicing and serving it. Because is there anything worse than room temperature melon?

Cornhole, Walmart ($90)

No BBQ is complete without cornhole, and we like the Scandi-esque simplicity of these wooden boards.

Magnetic Screen Door, Walmart ($9)
Shop

This easy-to-install screen door closes automatically thanks to smartly placed magnets. It’ll keep moths and mosquitos out, but is sheer enough that you’ll still feel like part of the party while you’re in the kitchen plating the pie.
