How to host the perfect weekend BBQ during lockdown
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato
2. Garden furniture
When it comes to hosting outdoor gatherings such as BBQ's and summertime drinks, it's essential that your outdoor set-up replicates the comfort and style that you uphold indoors. Furnishing your garden can often be an afterthought but when BBQ season comes around, you'll be thanking yourselves for investing in some durable, stylish outdoor furniture! In the photo above you can see our Primrose Garden Sofa. Not only is the aesthetic of this piece easy on the eye, the solid wood bench is made from 100% sustainably sourced teak, meaning it's kind to the planet, too! What's more, this sofa comes with the shown above gorgeous seat and back cushions, upholstered in Sunbrella fabric, making it able to repel the rain!
3. Heaters and throws
As much as we wish we were lounging about in a tropical climate, for those of us who live in the UK, we need to put in the legwork to feel warm and cosy outside, beyond sunset. Throws galore is the answer to this question, as well as... How to refresh your home for the Spring with accessories? and How to achieve the perfect night in? ... yeah throws are always the answer.
4. Fairy lights and candles
If you want your family lockdown BBQ to become a magical night to remember, we highly recommend adorning your garden with twinkling fairy lights. From experience, we're big fans of standard, subtle fairy lights ( we've got loads of the KooPower Outdoor Fairy String Lights and love them), for their magical, whimsical feel. That way, when it gets to 9pm and you're outside with your family, snuggled up under a throw, laughing and chatting, sipping on wine with your playlist still playing, you won't even notice the sun has set. That's the sign of a great BBQ.
