Spring is officially here, and here at Homecolours we couldn't be happier! The season is a great time to make the most of any outdoor garden space around the home or outside. If you're of a horticultural mind it marks a chance to experiment with growing fruit and vegetables. It's also a lovely time to simply relax and watch the wild birds enjoying the fruit and seeds you've left out for them in designer bird feeders.
Hopefully some sunshine will be in store too, so parasols and shades are ideal to ensure relaxing on loungers and picnic mats with friends and family is done in maximum comfort. Take a look at the options from the company Fatboy, including the above luxurious Stripesol Parasol. The strong and versatile parasol can withstand quite strong winds, moving in the direction of any breeze to provide the best cover for a picnic.
But for getting out in the sun this spring, food and drinks are top of the list for what needs to be on offer for a memorable time outdoors. Thankfully top designers have a whole range of ideas for al fresco dining and picnic ideas.
The above Mepal Flow Serving Bowl 600ml is ideal for outdoor dining parties, picnics and BBQs. The generous capacity makes organising a salad or snacks simplicity itself. Contemporary and attractively designed the large bowl is easy to clean and perfect for pasta, vegetables or anything else that comes to mind. Great for sharing on a spring afternoon.
The Fatboy Picnic Lounge (above and title image) is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors. Displaying a memorable pattern of geometric shapes in striking red and white, the polyester mat is sure to make an impression at any outdoor get-together. Arriving with pegs to secure it to the ground and a handy brush to ensure it's kept in top condition, the picnic lounge mat makes a great addition to the home's outdoor equipment.
If sitting back and watching wild birds enjoying themselves is more the order of the day, the Eva Solo Bird Feeder Mini, Set of 2 is just the thing. Made from top quality mouth blown glass, the attractively produced bird feeders are sure to have local feathered friends come flying over. Simple to attach to tree branches, the feeders are easy to clean and are bound to become a favourite for everyone enjoying the spring outdoors.
