Suffolk was absolutely glorious this weekend and I actually managed to spend time in the garden giving it some much needed TLC. The grass is cut, all the boarders trimmed and de-weeded and the washing line up!! Don't you just love the smell of fresh cut grass and washing drying on the line?
Therefore, garden life is the inspiration for this little blog. Get out and enjoy the sunshine early, breathe in all the beautiful smells, flowers, grass, linen, listen to nature and get your garden ready for spring/summer. I don't know about you but we love a big garden party at home with lots of friends and family and suppers into the night.
Below are some great ideas to make your garden perfect for entertaining this year!
Fairy Lights create such a beautiful light when the sun starts to set in the evening, string them around trees and fences for a magical feel.
Bunting! If you haven't guessed yet I am a huge fan of bunting and it looks fantastic hung in the garden. It injects colour and fun, perfect for entertaining. If you want to learn how to make your own then take a look at my "how to make bunting" guide earlier this month!
Dress your garden table. It is quick and easy with a table cloth. Then accessorize as you wish, with a vase of flowers, candles, colourful glasses!
If you run out of seating don't panic. Throw together cushions and blankets to create a casual, comfy seating area on the grass.
Lanterns hanging from trees create a lovely atmosphere in the evening and you can pick them up in all colours so if you are looking for a burst of colour these are sure to please.
And, if you are feeling creative you can make them yourselves!
I hope that these have given you some great ideas to make a memorable summer with your loved ones.
