The sun has been shinning recently and we have been able to leave our Moredales at home, which can only mean one thing, summer is on its way!

With the recent edition of the Joules and Garden Trading range we are all really excited to gather our friends and family and host a fabulous garden party.

The pimms is on ice and the cricket set is out of the garage, but what else do you need?

Setting the scene

Our beautiful Joules prints will transform any garden into the ultimate festival setting. Discover our picnic baskets with all the essentials along with our blankets and chairs we have everything you will need for outdoor dining with family and friends.

We’ve even got all the little details covered with our stunning new range from Garden Trading which will brighten up every garden.  Stylish take-it anywhere box floor cushions allow you to sit comfort on those long summer afternoons.

One of our favourite pieces in the collection is the lantern available in both blue and red. As dusk sets in reclaim the night and turn your garden into a candlelit oasis with our portable miner’s lantern.
