Better garden party? (5)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'better' is the definition.
(to outdo is to beat or do better than)

'garden party?' is the wordplay.
'garden' becomes 'out' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'party?' becomes 'do' (do can informally mean a party).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for outdo that I've seen before include "Surpass, go one better than" , "Overcome" , "Go one beter than, surpass" , "Defeat" , "Eclipse" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
