Whether you want to set up a blooming beautiful spring table on the deck, or scatter cushions and throws galore all over the garden floor, whatever size your space, there’ll be a perfect place.
Check out these sublime Spring finds to set the scene….
Spring furniture finds
If you’re prone to going a little overboard on the decorating front, get excited, this is one look where less isn’t always more, sometimes more is actually…magical.
From jewel-toned and botanical cushions to fairy lights, fresh and faux blooms, lanterns, bunting, gingham and mismatched crockery, there’s no hard and fast rule about flinging your Spring thing together….so long as it makes your heart sing.
Use floor cushions and bean bags as additional seating, bring out Nanna’s vintage mason jars and fill them with tea lights, and set an over-the-top table packed with pretty-as-a-picture platters made for sharing and one-of-a-kind wooden boxes, old-fashioned jugs or metal tins to store cutlery, salad servers, condiments and more.
All in the dishy details
What to eat?
Well, we’re no chefs, but we’re all about how it looks, so opt for oversized wooden boards piled with deli meats, cheeses, crackers, abundant seasonal fruit, artisan breads, a bowl of peachy punch and jars of homemade lemonade with straws – delish!
What to do?
Life-sized garden games have made a massive comeback this Spring, so channel your inner child and make like a littlun with lawn games galore. From croquet and Scandi-craze Finska to petanque, oversized chess, quoits of Jenga, it’s a fab, fun and fresh way to break the ice and ensure everyone’s mingling and making the most of the Springtime sunshine.
If a crew of kids are on the invite list, and you’ve got the energy, why not arrange some old-school backyard fun along the lines of egg and spoon races, tunnel ball or everyone’s favourite….the sack race!
