Summer Lovin’

If this isn’t the perfect weather for Alfresco Living then I don’t know what is!

A big part of the summer for me is the food. Whether your summer delights are fresh off the bbq or out of the oven, pop them on a plate with a glass of your favourite fizz and get yourselves outside. Let’s face it, we have to grab the opportunity while we can.

“There’s nothing more inviting than a well-dressed table and after the year we’ve all had, we deserve it.”



So now we’ve made the decision to take advantage of this glorious sunshine, why not do it in style? Now I don’t mean your choice of outfit or bikini as I have no doubt you’re already looking utterly fabulous. Completely indulge in outdoor dining by dressing the table. Whether you’re treating yourself or having a few friends join you, dine in style. After all, there’s nothing more inviting than a well-dressed table and after the year we’ve all had, we deserve it 💪🏼

So, if you already have your outdoor dining kit in the cupboard then get it out! If you haven’t, may I suggest some absolute beauties that are my go-to’s and really add to that dining experience?

Summer Night’s Dream

As the days roll into evenings and night starts to fall there is no better way to light up your outside space than with the stunning Starbursts from @inlehome.

These gorgeous lights are LED and lightweight which means they can be put anywhere you like and will last a long time. The best part is that both the battery and mains operated variants can be used indoors or out. I absolutely love them.

Top Table Picks

Your table also needs to shine. Inle Home has some gorgeous tableware that really brings summer to your table.

Let me introduce the Noir Salad Bowl @inlehome. (Other foods can be used in this bowl 😉). Not only is it beautiful with its simple design and pops of colour but it’s practical and it’s dishwasher safe too! Win-win.

One of my favourites is my Lemon Ceramic Jug @inlehome. It doesn’t get much more summery than this little gem with its beautiful yellow colour effortlessly brightening up any table. Your cocktails are just waiting to be served up in this.

Tell me these delightful Concerto ‘cute as a button’ bowls @inlehome don’t make you smile? Cheerful, stylish and just ooozing those summer vibes. Looking for the perfect bowls for your starter or small pudding after you’ve over-indulged on the main? 😉 Look no further, these little beauties are for you!

Sharing is Caring

If you do decide to treat yourself to any of these utter delights, then we would love to see them in situ lapping up the sun! ☀️ Don’t forget to tag @inlehome @love_yourspace 💛💛

Enjoy the sunshine lovely, lovely people and stay safe 💛
