Say what you will but there’s no time like the present when it comes to sprucing up an outdoor space. Sure, the season may be winding down but there’s still time to squeeze in a few more gatherings. Decoratively speaking, we tend to overlook the smaller details in favor of bigger ticket items like dining sets and chaise longues. Ironically, the former—think: lighting, textiles, planters—has the most potential for making a significant impact. Bonus points for the fact that they also tend to run on the affordable side. Talk about a win-win.

So before you go splurging on that massive pergola, take a peek at the stylish decorative accents we’re adding to our carts—sourced straight from Walmart’s DIY & Done—for all of our autumnal needs.
