The sunshine is calling and so this Mother’s Day, we say ditch the brunch reservations and set up your own garden party. Too much work thinking about how you’ll decorate the great outdoors? Now Target has every outdoor decor item you’ll need to fancy up your deck, all in one place.

In partnership with creative types – Pinterest pinners and bloggers with an eye for the unique – Target is displaying entertaining collections you have to see. First up is Joy Cho and her prettier than pretty Oh Joy! for Target collection that will transform your garden from blah to beautiful in no time.

Joy’s bold and happy use of colour and pattern makes it easy to set up your exterior in style – lights, pitchers, banners, paper lanterns, ice buckets, goblets, cake stands, toppers and when the time comes, even pretty trash bags to stash the mess. Pick your choice of mix and match items, all without breaking the bank.

To set the mood, hang the paper lanterns from your tree’s lower branches, on the inside of your gazebo, or even on your fence. Next, up goes the Happy Day banner with the floral garland. Now stick one, two or three decal flowers to each chair back to amp up your theme.

Use the colour-blocked tablecloth to add a splash to your table. How about a centrepiece? All you need is this fabulous cake stand and topper along with vases filled with bright blooms. Place them down the centre of the table. Sprinkle it all with confetti.

Serve our favourite part of partying – the cocktails! – in  these fine European water bottles, which you can plant at different spots for guests to help themselves. They can keep drinks cool with ice from this cute ice bucket and pour into these gold-rimmed goblets.

Serve your meal on polka-dotted rectangular plates, along with fun cutlery and colourful napkins and your party is almost complete. Now all you need now are your guests.

Time to celebrate Mom – and Spring!
