We’ve been cooped up inside all winter, so you’d better believe that the second it’s warm enough to host a barbecue, we’re having a party out on the patio. Of course, the best part of planning any backyard bash is the decor. No, we’re not talking about lawn flamingos and tiki torches — we want chic, cute and summery decor that we can actually afford. That’s where everyone’s favorite online retailer — Amazon — comes in. There are menus to plan and invitations to write, so instead of making a trip to the party store, we’re doing all of our summer party supply shopping on Amazon. Modern, cheap, and stylish, these affordable items will make your party pop.
