So for once this year I am turning my attention to the great outdoors. With an impending birthday party to plan in the garden, let’s hope the weather improves by July. Keeping fingers and toes crossed for this or am I just seriously deluded?!
First up is the seating, I have always loved the classic lines and shape of the stunning acapulco chair but this bistro chair from George is a purse friendly alternative. I wouldn’t normally go for lime green but for me the zingy hue just works alongside all the foiliage outside. Next up is the Indian Garden Company‘s Cream Pearl parasol. What’s not to love about this handcrafted beauty made in Bali by highly skilled artisans using bamboo and coconut wood. Set the table with some eye catching picnic and tableware in natural inspired materials like the woven basket from Habitat. Love the Palm and La Selva collection from John Lewis as well as the table textiles. For that extra hint of green foliage, add a block printed cushion pad from CMYK Living. The reverse print actually features tuk tuks but I love the natural look of this cushion which works just as well outdoors.
