You could choose a relaxed Boho theme, go for bold and bright, or keep it contemporary - but more importantly have some fun and treat your garden to a little refresh!


When it comes to outside spaces, think about these in the same way you would do inside - think about layering rugs, cushions and throws, and adding those all important finishing touches like lighting, and lanterns - these really help to create a mood in a space, and outside is no different.


Pots and planters are a great way to add some life into a space, and you can also get really nice faux versions too, so don't worry if you're not very green fingered!


Create a cosy fabulous outdoor space, and treat yourself to some lovely glassware, that's sure to wow your guests!
