3 outdoor settings to take you from brekkie in the sun to dinner alfresco

These three outdoor settings take you through the day, from brekkie in the sunshine, to a lazy afternoon read-and-snooze, then dinner al fresco

1. Breakfast in the sun:

Nothing really beats breakfast in the sun on a summer’s morning. Make breakfast service a breeze with a stylish bar cart laden with your favourite brekkie foods. Roll it out to the sunniest spot in your garden and enjoy a morning among nature.

A bar cart is the perfect option for your catering your brekkie outside. Fill it up with enough food to satisfy everyone’s needs and then roll it into the shade after everyone has finished serving themselves.

 This terrazzo ottoman makes for the perfect outdoor table. Use it for dining with cushions as your seats on a summer morning.

 Freeze berries, herbs and dried flowers in your ice cubes for pretty, floral and fragrant cups of ice-cold water.

2. A relaxing midday set up

Midday in summer is when the heat really ramps up, so it’s the perfect time to lie back and read a book in the shade. Set up the ideal outdoor lounge with a woven day bed and outdoor coffee table.

Woven furniture allows the background, and sunlight, to show through. It has an airy feel and is a good choice for a small space.

3. Romantic dusk dining alfresco

We’re lucky enough in summer not only to enjoy breakfast outside, but also dinner if we want to.

Set up a romantic dining spot in your garden with an elegant table and chair set and a few linen throws on hand, in case it gets cold.
