Make It Beautiful

I have many beautiful flowers out in the garden in Summer, from my pink and blue Hydrangeas to my mix of pink and yellow David Austin roses and my recently added Cafe au Lait Dahlias.

They allow me to create a beautiful display down the center of my table and to place a bunch of flowers from the garden on my console table in the entrance, bathroom and refreshment table.

If I don’t have any flowers out I will buy a beautiful bouquet from my local fruit market or florist.

Table Setting

Being organised is key to a successful summer party. I am now much more organised and have the time to plan before my party. Leading up to the party I will make sure I have a table cloth washed and ironed and ready to use, and the colour theme chosen.

Choosing napkins and candles to add randomly down the middle of my table with my flowers.

I have a separate outdoor table to serve the food on and set out the plates and cutlery, depending on how many guests I have.

I like to style up a separate refreshments area so that guests can help themselves, after their champagne on arrival of course.


Refresh your seating with new cushions in your colour theme, Bed Bath N’Table have a selection of outdoor cushions for summer.

I love this chair above from Style Me Pretty with a beautiful flower arrangement attached to the back of the chair.

I have a set of wicker chairs to set up on the lawn with some cushions and a white outdoor timber bench on the lawn or the deck, lined with cushions to match the colour of my outdoor dining table.
