1. World Market Yellow Soleil Outdoor Accent Stool, $41.99

2. Pepper Palm Desert Days Planter (Small), $20

Each pot from this brand is hand sealed, painted, and then sealed again, making it tough against the outside elements. While plants are not included, the shop owner recommends selecting a plant that keeps up with the desert vibes like a Fairytale cactus, Mammillaria Elongata, and any other type of succulent or cacti.

3. Anthropologie Lace Drop Solar Lantern, $34
