How to update your garden for the summer on a budget

Out of our new house, our garden is probably the best 'room' we have. It's in pretty good shape with some decking that just needs a lick of paint. Just as well with the weather is starting to hot up... I can't wait to spend more time out there. We can't afford to spend a lot of money to spruce it up so I've been keeping my eye out for little knick knacks that help give it a new lease of life. I'm thinking lanterns, cushions and quirky accessories with a bright, slightly kitsch theme. Basically anything that possibly looks a bit tacky... Fishpools,  Matalan, Homesense and ASDA have a great selection of different bits and bobs. Have a look below to see what I have my eye on...

1. Puffin cushion - Maison Du Monde
2. Plastic flamingos - John Lewis
3. Pink hanging pot - TK Maxx
4. Rattan dining set - Fishpools
5. Malamine dinner plates - Debenhams
6. Bistro set - George at Asda
7. Pineapple cushion - Maison Du Monde
8. Pineapple LED lights - John Lewis

How would you update your garden on a budget? I'm always after some tips!
