If your patio isn’t quite ready for a summer of dinner parties, barbecues, and cocktail hours, don’t sweat it — designer Emily Henderson has gifted us with TONS of ideas through her own recent revamp. To makeover her outdoor space, Henderson turned to easy decor ideas, cool color choices, and a Pinterest-worthy bar cart, making the look enviable *and* totally achievable. Read on for the inside scoop, then head over to Target for more of her expert decorating tips.

According to Target, Henderson set out to reinvent her deck with “a modern and clean California vibe with classic touches of the English countryside” in mind. Beyond knocking those goals outta the park, she managed to create a little oasis that both the kiddos and adults can enjoy, thanks to durable furniture, trendy accent pieces, and ample seating.

But what was Henderson’s secret to making such a chic space totally family friendly? She kept clutter to a minimum, chose durable furniture, set up the bar cart far away from the kids’ play area, and popped LED candles in all the lanterns, instead of worrying about flames.

Best of all? Almost everything in the outdoor makeover is from Target, so you can copy the look AND stay on a budget.
