Summer is officially here, and if you’re heading out for some picnics or playdates, the new West Elm x REI outdoor lifestyle collection might be the next thing to add to your must-have list.

This is the second time that this pair has worked together, but this time, the design teams from both brands created an entire outdoor lifestyle line, incorporating West Elm style with the outdoor expertise of REI.

The new line includes 10 limited-edition pieces meant to make getting outside this summer both comfortable and chic. Options include a fold-up teal, slatted picnic table, foldable rope chairs, and even some easy-to-assemble tents for some shade.

The items cost anywhere from $14.95-$150. You can shop the entire collection now on the REI or West Elm websites. Jeffrey Hannoosh, senior vice president of design at West Elm, said that the new collection is meant to be stylish, but also easy to set up and store.

“Each piece is designed to enhance the comfort and style of moments spent outside,” Hannoosh said in a press release. “And built to make setup quick and storage convenient. It’s the perfect suite of products for any summer occasion.”

After you purchase your new picnic set, here are some ways to get the kids excited about heading out for some summer fun.
