Disappointing as the summer has been so far, we firmly believe this is all the more reason to make the most of our last days of sun. What better way to enjoy it than by decking out the deck, brightening up the balcony or glamming up the garden…
There are plenty of ways to brighten up this glooming summer, whatever your taste or budget. If you’re the crafty type, try making your own tassel bunting or pom-poms, although kits are available from many online retailers and are a great way to keep kids occupied. But if DIY is not your forte, fear not: we’ve collected the most eye-catching ready-mades for your instant enjoyment. Keep an eye out for the Mexican cut-out garland, traditionally used for weddings but perfect for any lively celebration.
Tents are a simple way to cause a bit of excitement for kids of all ages. We love the retro-boho feel of this tepee, fit to turn your garden into your own private festival. And what would any celebration be without a colourful variety of cocktail umbrellas? Head to Tiger to check out the whole selection. We might not be in the Riviera or the Caribbean, but it’s the best we’ve got, so get out and make the most of the mild weather!
