Fun Al Fresco
The home suddenly expands in the summer months and the garden becomes just another room. Why dine and socialise inside when, with the addition of a few carefully chosen items, you can utilise your outdoor space instead. Carefully planted flowers and shrubs and a well-tended lawn can be admired by family and friends and the extra daylight hours mean more time to relax and unwind.
1.Old Rectory Rose Arch
Why not complete the look with this sturdy arch. Perfect for climbing roses, clematis or fragrant jasmine.
2. Old Rectory Round Table and 2 Standard Chairs
A shabby-chic finish to this attractive garden set can be left unadorned or made more comfortable with the addition of seat pads and a pretty tablecloth, depending on the mood.
(All items fold).
3. Fatboy garden hammock
Another of Fatboy’s extravagantly large designs, this hammock easily has room for several people. No trees or rope required: it’s safely attached to a secure frame and is made of water and UV resistant fabric – hours of pleasure to be had!
4. Kilner Jar Mugs*
Cause a stir when you offer your guests their lager or Pimms in these trendy mugs. Bright and cheerful colours make them so much more fun than regular glasses.
