With the sun shining and a cool breeze blowing, entertaining outdoors during the summertime is a no-brainer. But finding ways to easily and affordably spruce up your outdoor décor can be a little daunting.  Have no fear – Marshalls and T.J.Maxx can be your one-stop shop for planning and decorating all your outdoor social events this summer.

From high-quality cookware to international gourmet foods and gorgeous outdoor accessories, you can always find a fresh selection of seasonal entertaining merchandise at both stores. And the best part is that you’ll never sacrifice quality for a great price – many of the brands you see in their home department are the same carried in specialty stores, but up to 60% less.

They’re able to offer these great prices because of their buyers’ direct relationships with thousands of vendors all around the world. That means you get amazing deals on high-quality merchandise that will last throughout the season.

To help you put together the best outdoor party of the season with ease and style, check out these tips from the Marshalls and T.J.Maxx entertaining experts:

• Functional, easy-to-clean outdoor furniture gives your guests a more comfortable way to enjoy their time at your home and make party clean-up a snap.

• Grab kitchen gadgets and tools like spatulas, paring knives, cutting boards and ice cream scoops in bright colors to make food preparation even more fun!
