Yesterday I sent out my finds of the very best Memorial Day sales on outdoor furniture, rugs, etc.
The sales are still going on- you didn’t miss it!- but hurry because some things are selling out.
But I also promised that I would send you a picture update when I got my set all together. So here’s another reminder of the sale items AND an update on our patio. Enjoy…
As a reminder, here’s what we got:
$799, now $697
Note: This set comes with a very nice farmhouse style coffee table that’s not shown above because we’re using our firepit table instead.
$499, now $285
$49.99, now $33.99 with code HOME
Target: Up to 33% off with code HOME
So that’s the update, here’s the original post that I sent out with the deals and why we made the choices we did :).
Memorial Day is this weekend! In my world, that always marks the unofficial beginning of summer and it’s the time of year when my wheels start turning about how we want to spend it.
A big part of that this year (and most years) is hanging out on the deck grilling and just enjoying the sunshine.
I’ve already let my newsletter subscribers in on a few purchases we just made to turn our deck into the ultimate summer gathering spot. It’s still a work in progress and I promise to post pics of the completed project, but today I want to share with you rest of you where we’re at so far.

Plus, some of the best deals you’re gonna see all year on outdoor furniture and rugs- this is the weekend to save big!!
$799, now $697
First up, is the 4 piece set we decided on after copious amounts of research- both online and in person.
Yes, I spent a good couple of days driving around to Pier1, Walmart, World Market, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Fred Myer, and Target to give all these pieces a good sit test.
In the end, this Better Homes and Garden set just couldn’t be beat! And we nabbed it up fast because research revealed that last year’s model of this set sold out by June.
Here’s why we love it:
- It looks and feels like it cost a lot more than it did. In person, this set presents just as high end as similar pieces from stores like Crate and Barrel for less than 1/3 of the cost!
- It includes a couch and two chairs for under $1000 (way under!) This is literally the only set I found that included a couch, and not a loveseat, that was even close to this price range.
- The cushions are a lovely neutral with out being too light. The problem I have with a lot of sets is that, though visually stunning, the cushions are basically white… In my house of 3 kids (and a bazillion neighbor kids) they would not remain that way for no more than 2 days, tops. That being said, I didn’t want boring (and kinda ugly) tan either…. The cushions on this set are actually a very pretty neutral that will go with almost anything and be a lot more durable than white.
Side Note: The Meadow Lake Collection and The Camrose Farmhouse Collection are two more sets from Walmart’s Better Homes & Garden line that I really liked as far as comfort and style (they just don’t include a couch in the conversation set).
We also purchased the Davenport wicker rocker for a 6th seat to go with our set.
$399, now $379
In a perfect world, I would also have space and budget for a chair like this somewhere. Could there be a better spot to curl up and do some summer reading with the kiddos?!
$299, now $199
And if a swinging chair is your thing, Pier1 is the place to go. They’re basically the Mecca of the hanging chair trend, and options abound.
You can hang the chair from the ceiling or get yourself a stand (now 25% off) and put it wherever you like.
$329, now $264
Again, white cushions are a big no-no when you expect a lot of kids to be using your outdoor furniture. That makes the black outdoor furniture from Target pictured above (there are more pieces available in the collection) is a perfectly chic solution.
$809, now $647
This is another conversation set from Target that I saw in person. The color runs more grey but is another beautiful neutral.
$859, now $449
If you’re not as concerned as I was about having a couch in your conversation set, than there are some really good deals to be had that include a loveseat and two chairs.
I especially like the lines of this wicker set from Wayfair. And you can’t beat $410 off!!
Plus, I’ve seen some really great review photos of people purchasing two of these sets to use together… How amazing is to be able to provide super comfy seating for 8 for $900?!
If you’re willing spend a little more, this wood collection is also gorgeous.
It gives off a very high end resort feel and that storage/coffee table would be so awesome for stowing away pillows and blankets for getting extra cozy at night.
Memorial Day weekend is also always an excellent time to nab an outdoor rug (even a really big one) at a great price!
My favorites at Target this year are from the Opal House and Threshold line.
I’m also loving all the rugs on sale at All Modern!
We just bought the one above for our patio last week.
$1,829, now $719
Last but certainly not least, for the next few days outdoor sectionals are also on amazing discount.
The stylish set above is over $1,000 off this weekend! And I love how you can rearrange the pieces to comfortably seat 6 in whatever layout works best for your home.
$2,199, now $1,049
This one is also over $1,000 off and I love the modern vibe along with the comfy ottoman so everyone can kick up their feet.
On Sale for $748.99
And of course I had to throw in a dark sectional too. This piece from All Modern looks like it will totally go the distance without breaking the bank.
$59.99, now $24.99
When setting up your new conversation area out back, don’t forget that people need a place to put their drinks! We bought 3 end tables to go with our new set but now I’m kicking myself a bit for not waiting.
The price of side tables always irks me a bit (why so high!), so I was thrilled when I found this deal for 58% off at Pier1!
Side Note: Ottomans and poofs are also a really nice touch for allowing everyone to truly relax with their feet up.
I just picked up this one from Target this morning.
