For the best food and drink to outdoor speakers and gorgeous decorations, here’s where to find everything you need at Drake Circus and The Barcode.

Bring the party into the garden with outdoor wireless Bluetooth speakers from Apple for the latest tech and swing by Sky for incredible deals for sports this summer. Decorate your garden space with colourful (and rainproof) outdoor cushions and rugs, earth-inspired textures such as hessian and stone, bright and beautiful patio tables and chairs and Eastern-inspired parasols. Remember, you’ll always need more cushions and chairs than you think you do.

For tablescaping, think huge Moroccan-inspired serving platters, colourful plates and glasses and fun cocktail accessories. Get inspired with beautiful buys at Oliver Bonas, Primark and Flying Tiger Copenhagen.
