Summer is HERE! If you're gearing up for outdoor celebrations and backyard soirees, then these bargain pool accessories and outdoor items are for YOU!
This post is written in partnership with Walmart.
I know, I know. I can't stop talking about pool parties and summer fun. But, 'tis the season. If you follow us over on Instagram, then you know we've been pool partying it up. Outdoor get togethers are PERFECT for warm summer months, and we've been loving our pool party play dates with friends in our backyard oasis.
Now that we are using the pool and entertaining the backyard on a regular basis, I decided to upgrade our pool accessories and outdoor entertaining items. Enter Walmart. Yup, WALMART. I found a TON of really cute bargain items for outdoor entertaining. If you're looking to upgrade YOUR backyard oasis……these items from Walmart Home are perfect for you. From acrylic glasses (no shattering glass near the pool please) to outdoor pillows to the CUTEST beach towels……Walmart home is killing it with the pool accessories and outdoor entertainment items (and I love that it's gentle on your pocket book).
The Best Pool Accessories and Outdoor Items
Shop All Pool Accessories and Outdoor Entertainment Items:
Bar And BBQ Area:
One of the things that we love most about our backyard oasis and pool area? We have a great outdoor bar / Tiki hut dining area. It's perfect for meals, grilling, cocktails and entertaining. I've slowly been adding to our outdoor entertaining items and wanted to share a few of my favorites.
Acrylic Tumblers: I have to admit, our outdoor drinkwear situation was seriously lacking. I don't want to use glass near the pool, and we didn't have any non-breakable glasses besides…..red Solo cups. So I FINALLY upgraded. I love these striped acrylic tumblers, they're under $20 for a set of eight and you can choose aqua or white stripes.
Ice Cream Maker: Nothing screams summer like homemade ice cream. Growing up, we made ice cream with my mom every summer and this machine? Is the perfect ice cream maker upgrade. It's SUPER easy to use and works quickly!
Ice Cream Bowls: Can't have ice cream without the bowls right? We just grabbed a set of these adorable polka dotted ice cream bowls. They're nice and thick, so kid friendly and safe to use by the pool.
Portable Ice Machine: I know, I know. I can't stop raving about having a portable ice machine. Listen this is an outdoor party game changer. It fills with ice in about 45 minutes and makes chilling drinks easy as pie (it also makes a great housewarming gift, combine this with some fun pool accessories and you're SET)!
BBQ Set: We've been grilling a LOT lately (thanks to our very unexpected kitchen remodel) and needed a few more tools to make it easier. This BBQ set is under $20 and perfect for cooking out!
Lounge Area and Pool Accessories:
Y'all know I LOVE my pool accessories and our lounge area. I upgraded with a few new items and it's made our backyard oasis even better!
Striped Towels: I'm going to be honest…..our towel situation wasn't exactly stylish. We had a mishmash of random beach towels and most of them were pretty old. I grabbed a couple of these matching striped towels and man do they look nice all stacked up by the pool! They come in a couple color combos: Yellow / orange , blue / pink , lime / teal or you can snag a set of four colors for under $20!
I also grabbed storage baskets to keep the towels organized and another basket to store goggles and sunscreen.
Outdoor Pillows: want to REALLY upgrade your outdoor space? Add pillows. I grabbed a few more to add to our bar stools and chaise lounge chairs and they look GREAT!
Water Blasters: Want to get the most bang for your pool accessories buck? These water blasters are 2 for $5 and I GUARANTEE they'll be a huge hit! I just ordered an additional set since they're the favorite toy every pool party we have!
Diving Rings: Diving Rings are another great and inexpensive option for pool accessories. This set is under $5 and easy to carry in a pool or beach bag for vacations.
Dive and Grab Set: Want pool accessories for younger kids? This dive and grab set is perfect for using in a regular pool or a kiddie pool and I GUARANTEE will be used a million times (plus it's under $10)!
