Garden furniture can look stunning on its own. The Supremo, Rattan, Charles Taylor and Lifestyle garden furniture ranges are all stylish and beautiful in their own right. However, an outdoor space can be transformed with a few simple touches that lift it from basic to magical with very little effort.
1. Pretty pillows
There is a huge range of weatherproof cushions and pillows in different sizes, colours and patterns. Mix and match or pick a theme in keeping with the colours and feel of your garden. Your guests will welcome the comfort and support as the evening draws on as well.
2. Lanterns and candles
As the light fades, a flickering candle safely enclosed in a lantern provides a gentle and calming ambience while offering some light to chat by. If you’re worried about naked flames, you can also go for faux candles which give the same effect.
3. Cosy throws
You start off your late afternoon dinner party in blazing sunshine and short sleeves but as soon as the sun dips down, it gets chilly. You don’t want your guests rushing home just as the conversation gets going so have some throws handy. They add an extra splash of colour when not needed, but can be wrapped around cold shoulders when the heat disappears too.
4. Outdoor lighting
While candles and lanterns are magical, sometimes a little more light is needed. If you have an overhead covering, you can string fairy lights above the table. If you don’t, you can still dig out the Christmas lights and drape them around the fences or foliage behind your furniture.
