Britain has a fantastic tradition of holding street and garden parties: the humble outdoor celebration with tea and cake is as British as strawberry jam or Wimbledon. Whether you prefer a whole street party with bunting, mugs of tea and hats, or an elegant garden party with cream buns and cucumber sandwiches, Littlewoods has got a huge range of outdoor furniture and accessories to keep you in the party spirit all summer long.
As we all know, a British summer wouldn’t be a proper summer without a spot (or two) of rain, so ensuring that your garden party guests can shelter in the dry whilst still enjoying the beautiful flora and fauna of your garden is essential. Depending on the size of your garden, you might want to invest in a permanent structure or something that you can put up and down easily depending on the weather. The 4 x 4m Hex Gazebo with Mesh Sides – Green is perfect for smaller spaces: this compact gazebo is set up in no time and is an ideal area to house music equipment or food at your party.
The 6 x 3m Party Gazebo is a great option for those with larger gardens, or those who are hosting a Jubilee party in a field or large outdoor space. This spacious gazebo has a sturdy frame yet is lightweight enough to set up (with a friend’s help, of course), and its shower-resistant cover is completely British-summer-proof! Our Samarkhand Steel Gazebo is one of our favourite outdoor products: a pretty steel frame with ornate floral elements and a white roof make this a luxury product that’s still simple to erect and fits into even the smallest of garden spaces.
Furniture is a must, too, so your guests can relax in comfort even into the wee small hours. Instead of opting for unattractive plastic chairs and tables, invest in a comfortable, classically-designed item of furniture. The Camillion 2-Seater Bench is a simple and traditional addition to your garden that’s sure to get years of use, thanks to the sturdy build – it’s also constructed from wood from sustainable plantations.
Or how about the gorgeous Monte Carlo 5-piece Corner Set Garden Furniture? This luxurious yet practical set is incredibly versatile and can be changed to suit your mood: rearrange to form a corner sofa, small sofa and chairs, or a large six-seater sofa!
But there’s one thing we’re missing – suitably Jubilee-themed accessories! Brighten up your garden parties this summer with classic red, white and blue soft furnishings and outdoor accessories for a truly British spin on your outdoor events. The Jubilee Rectangular Table Cloth has a sophisticated tonal palette include pale blue and beige in an irregular stripe – perfect for tea parties. Or how about the Ikat Round Table Cloth, an on-trend design that still has a classic feel? For parties on the move, the Epicurean Jubilee Stripe 4-person Picnic Hamper contains everything you need for eating on the go, or try the Swan Textured Spot 16-piece Dinner Set for quirky dinner party dates.
Whatever you’re doing to celebrate the Jubilee this year, make sure you enjoy the Great British summer with our range of fabulous outdoor home furniture and accessories from Littlewoods.
