4 Cool Winter Garden Ideas

One of the things we love to do, is dine alfresco no matter the season, though it can be a little harder in the winter months, there are a few things that I to like buy, create and style for the colder months in
order for Leanora and I to enjoy a feast with friends and family outdoors under the night sky, whilst cooking up some s’mores by the fire all whilst nestled in a sheepskin throw.

Braving the chilly weather can be a bit daunting but there are some really cool pieces that will keep you warm and toasty for a wintery weekend or night and you don’t need items that will cost you a fortune.

For those that have a garden and looking for a winter warming serenity,  in order to achieve this a great place to start is with a firepit, chimney or a patio heater, plus its a great way to keep your guests out if you don't want them seeking refuge inside, especially after a party.

Super important, no one wants to stand all night, so seating is imperative, you can make your own out of crates to even buying some great outdoor furniture,  another great way to get creative is by getting blankets and making your very own hammock, or large cushions placed under a tree, got some large tree stumps use, them as additional seating and for even a more creative seating area you can use even a compost bag and just drape over a few throws.

Get all hygge outside! What better way to create a cosy corner, where people can chill, relax and have a good old chat with a glass in their hand, by throwing a whole load of cushions and blankets down on to some furniture or even under a tree. I doubt people will mind sitting on the floor as long as it is comfortable.

Light Up
Lighting is key, you want to bring the Arabian nights into your very own back garden, mix the lighting up with some solar powered fairy lights, candles, teas lights eve with lanterns dotted around the garden to give it a midsummers night dream feel.
