Your outdoor dining essentials

Whether you’re glamping at Glastonbury or picnicking in the New Forest, we’ve got just what you need to plan a stylish al fresco feast.

Summer is finally here, which means the great outdoors is officially your dining room. But don’t settle for paper plates and plain plastic cups – opt for kitsch picnic blankets, tropical-print cool bags and drinks dispensers. Dining on-the-go has never looked as bright.

Fire it up - Portable red barbecue

Time to sizzle

For on-the-go grilling opt for a transportable bucket barbecue – just be sure to check that your local green or woodland allows you to fire it up first.

Sophisticated supper

For a more elegant occasion, try a monochrome melamine set – the exotic prints perfectly complement colourful tabboulehs and summer salads. Serve a selection of small dishes in dip bowls and appetiser plates for guests to share, and look to smoky-style tumblers and pitchers for extra drama.
