Go Alfresco & dress up your outdoor furniture

Finally the Great British Summer has returned to our garden.  It’s been a changeable Summer so far but now the sun is shining (hopefully for a few more weeks now) we can wheel out the BBQ from the shed and plan some fun garden parties for our friends and family…


When you are eating outside, there are lots of ways to bring colour and a sense of occasion to your table.  We’ve taken inspiration from our recent in-store displays and put together some easy ideas:

Make each guest feel special

Placeholders tied to little hearts and beautiful gingham place mats will spruce up any table.




Add some ‘theatre’ through some simple design touches

Some carefully chosen items will turn your garden furniture into an inspirational entertaining space.  Add a candelabra or a vase with some beautiful hand cut flowers to your table and you are already on the way to impressing your guests!

Sitting pretty – is your furniture up to scratch? 

If your furniture is starting to look a little worn…we have a full range of garden furniture in-store and currently have some Summer special offers you might like to check out!


This wicker set has been dressed with some simple pink accessories, which give it that feminine feel – perfect for a ladies lunch!


These lovely little bistro sets can be tucked away in a small space for romantic dining. Here we’ve used faux flowers but some bedding plants in pots with a clear colour theme would also work well. These soft blues and creams with a hint of pink are perfect for hot Summer evenings.


You can shop our collection in-store or browse online and check out our Click & Collect and local/national delivery services.
