Get your patio ready for barbecues and cocktail parties alfresco.
It’s what we’ve been dreaming of all winter long: the chance to sit outside in the sun with a glass of wine or pint of beer in hand. Summer is just around the corner, so now is prime time to get your backyard in shape for outdoor entertaining. It’s possible to create a chic outdoor space without spending a fortune—right now you can save up to 25 percent off patio furniture and décor at Target.
