How different the days are when the sun is shining.
We've been taking everything outside, every meal is either on the grass, in the park, al fresco and laid-back as though time has slowed down. Each day is becoming more colourful and weekends are all about finding the perfect outdoor space to fill with friends, family, food, fun and games. We're doing our best to welcome the summer in the way it deserves and making the most of every minute of it.
With a few firm favourites that we use again and again each summer and some fresh new loves we're celebrating the days in the sun. Here's some of our current favourite food loving finds for rolling out the good times with a little al fresco:
Colourful picnic plates in 6 delicious hues here, birch wood canapé forks here, vinyl lace placemats in 3 assorted colours here
treats, nibbles and finger food served in cupcake cases here and here and pretty printed baking trays here, with pretty cocktail sticks for forks and mini skewers
Pretty printed baking trays make the perfect serving dish for single portions, whilst pretty vintage jar covers make great lids for jars of salads, chopped fruit or sauces and dips.
Rectangular melamine plates in pretty prints make great platters. Mix with melamine cups, cake forks , salad spoons, and the rest of the melamine pieces to create colourful settings on the grass or garden table.
'happy days' barbecue skewers are our new bright favourite (I think we'll need to post some sizzling recipes too) pictured here with the folding metal table in green, chopping boards make great serving platters that'll be easy to pass around
outdoor lights here make summer feel an endless party
and back in stock for summer in 3 new prints............roll out the good times with our favourite picnic blankets...
