The Hot List: Summer party essentials from drink coolers to fire pits

In this week’s Hot List we are getting ready for a summer party to remember.

With Freedom Day under a week away, we can almost taste those balmy summer evenings spent in the garden with an unlimited number of pals.

So obviously, you might want to step up your party game for the occasion.

Whether you’re throwing a Bridgerton-inspired tea party or just fancy getting wasted in the sunshine, we’ve got everything you need, right here.
