Garden parties are a fantastic way to catch up with friends in the sunshine. Planning a special get-together doesn’t have to be stressful – all you need is a garden that’s as pretty as a picture, delicious food, chilled drinks and a relaxed atmosphere. A few simple-but-effective touches to set the scene, such as bright bunting and paper decorations, practical picnicware mixed with vintage china and a chiminea or firepit for when the sun sets, will make all the difference. eBay is a brilliant one-stop shop full of new, refurbished and second-hand buys – the perfect place for getting everything you need for a stylish outdoor party.
