Dining Al Fresco – Garden Furniture

Hello Spring! I thought you’d never ger here.

I am so happy that the weather has finally turned. As soon as I saw a glimmer of sunshine I was so excited about getting outside and dining alfresco. Here we are at the weekend eating stuffed aubergines outside.

My picnic bench is definitely looking a bit sorry for itself. So I’ve been looking through the VintageVibe garden furniture and scouring the internet for some garden inspiration.

Tolix Garden Furniture

I love this picture, for me it’s the dream garden dining setup. I love the Tolix chairs combined with the quirky mismatched wooden chairs. They have created height on the table by using a few different sized cake stands. Our angel cake stand would work perfectly and matches beautifully with the aluminium Xavier Pauchard chairs. Just add some fresh flowers and our quirky red ruby cups et voila!

For a more traditional garden dining experience, see our gorgeous white metal dining furniture. They look fantastic as they are, but if you want to add a cosy touch you could get some cushions for the chairs. The white crown would make a fantastic centre piece with this table. Wind fresh or fake flowers around it to add some colour.

The etched silver plate claret jug adds a bit of decorum to your outside dining. Fill with some ice cold Pimms and serve generously!

With the weather heating up it’s time to crack open the ice cream. Serve ice cream in style with our Neiman Marcus Style Silver Plate Penguin Ice Cream Scoop. The top unscrews so you can fill it with warm water to make serving your delicious ice cream or sorbet easy peasy.

A spot of afternoon tea wouldn’t go a miss outside. Brew a pot of English breakfast tea in our stunning vintage tea set.
