Welcome to the great outdoors. Whether you live in the countryside, middle of suburbia or a rooftop apartment in the city, a plot of outdoor space to call your own is a special thing. And with the entertaining season around the corner, now is the perfect time to transform this space into a social sanctuary. If you’re hosting an elaborate garden dinner party for twelve or a simple neighbourly Australian BBQ, gathering friends and family around for some time spent entertaining outdoors is the making of a great summer – not to mention an Australian lifestyle rite of passage.

Proof a little spot of paradise can be found in the city, we looked to the Bellevue Hill House in Sydney’s Eastern Suburb by CM Studio to put together our update full of alfresco finds. Be it a sprawling green backyard or a petite paved patio, to mark the return of sunny-day gatherings, we’ve rounded up the freshest entertaining products to help inspire some memorable get-togethers this season.

Not only have we fallen for the soft curves of the Softline Tait Planter box, we also love that it can be wheeled around to suit any outdoor configuration. A must-have modern planter for any patio, courtyard, backyard or terrace.
