Fall is my favorite time of year to spend time outside.  The blistering hot weather is gone and a fabulous “no temperature” temperature has taken it’s place.  As the weather cools, it is the perfect time for cooking out with family and friends and enjoying our outdoor living space.

eBay has great sales going on right now for outdoor living and outdoor dining. This sale is a great time to add a few pieces to your outdoor tabletop, furnish your outdoor space or pick up the finishing touch you need for outdoors.  I was surprised to learn that 80% of the items listed on eBay are brand new. eBay is always the first place I check when I’m looking for an item that is sold out or is hard to find.

Setting a fun tablescape is one of my tricks to making even your go-to dinner fresh and fun.  eBay has so many fun tabletop options. I love these melamine dinnerware.  It’s perfect for outdoor or even daily meals.  It’s a fun way to add a fun touch to dinner.  These placemats would be great to replace the ones I use almost every night and need to be retired!

If you have been looking at updating your outdoor living area there are also so many great options. I love this fire pit. It would be so great for roasting Smore‘s this fall.  I’ve been thinking of purchasing one of these for outdoor movies.  We love for our girls to have friends over so this might be a fun enticement!  These are the same heaters we have on our deck and are in constant use in the cooler months and even mild winter.  They are as stylish as they are functional.

Below for my favorite find from eBay for fall entertaining.

Cheers to cooler weather!
