Autumn Entertaining Style


As the weather starts to cool down and we say goodbye to the hot, 40 degree plus days of summer, there has never been a better time to dabble in some outdoor entertaining. Because, a) the temperature is more bearable and b) the temperature is more bearable! Okay, and c) it’s great fun hosting a party. Whether the event is at home or a local park, The Parade has your outdoor entertaining covered.

First thing’s first: accessories. It wouldn’t be a great gathering if there weren’t some outdoor accessories taking pride of place. And who better to get accessories from than Outdoors on Parade? This popular store on The Parade is an institution when buying all the bits and bobs for outdoor entertaining.
