Hosting get-togethers for friends and family is so much easier when you can move the action (as well as the spills and tantrums) outside. In fact, if you've got limited space inside, it may well be the only way you can accommodate all the guests you'd like to invite.
You don't need to stand on ceremony for causal gatherings - plan on spending time catching up and kicking back, not waiting tables! It's best if there's seating for everyone and somewhere to serve the food and drink.
These small stacking chairs are ideal to bring out for additional seating around the garden when you're entertaining. They can be easily moved so your guests can choose whether they'd like a quiet spot in the garden or to sit right in the middle of the action.
You can dial up the style by covering surfaces with snowy cloths and decorating with flowers from the garden and little bowls of sweet-shop favourites like jelly beans.
A lightweight gazebo will provide some welcome shelter from the hot sun or if it must - a short rain shower. You can't rain on our parade!
