Did someone say heatwave? OK, so it may be a very British heatwave but it's happening and who needs an excuse to get outside and savour the sunshine... With a few nifty additions here's how you can turn that BBQ into some fine - al fresco - dining.
Our bestseller manages to play that difficult role of understated chic. Stark white plates and glistening cutlery can look jarring when taken outside, so try and use as many additions that blend with the environment. Made out of all-natural iraca palm, Sandra's rustic exterior is as authentic as it comes whilst its intricate detail is the epitome of sophistication.
Every table needs a focal point and our geometric red, black and white Werregue Woven Plates deserve all the attention and more. Use to carry cutlery out to the great outdoors or simple adorn with piles of vibrant citrusy fruit for dessert.
The ones that go with everything. - even when you're feeling fickle and changing your napkins as often as this peculiar British weather, our Sandra napkin rings are consistently reached for. Made by the talented women of Usiacuri in the north of Colombia, they - quite literally - pull everything together.
It doesn't need to be steaming hot for our favourite fan to be showcased (although that does help), it's all about creating an environment and atmosphere. The Narjim 8mino fans are a great way to add a touch of colour, as well as providing a talking point to help your guests interact. For extra special occasions, you can gift as a keepsake for your lucky diners to take home.
Practical and pretty, not only is this the perfect lightweight tray to save you multiple trips but it will fit right in without distracting from the main event. It's handily just as useful for transporting sun downers and nibbles to a mini terrace.
The ideal addition to compliment our Sandra Woven Placemats, our woven coasters are the simple touches that complete a tabletop and will last forever.
Have you seen anything like our Exquisite Estrella placemats before? Didn't think so. Whether or not, your garden is sprouting beautiful peonies and petunias, Estrella's fun and flirty shapes will bring it to life.
And then there's the Conchita...our much loved scalloped friend that works just as well inside and out. Fill with breakfast croissants, while your digest the morning papers with a steaming coffee or use to fill with fresh bread later in the day.
