Our new house may not have the lush fuss-free fake grass like our old one did, but what our garden does have is tonnes of potential. I’ve been looking online for new accessories and furniture to breathe a bit of life into it and give it more character. As you can probably tell from my blog and Instagram, I love everything to be bright, eclectic and fun, the same pretty much goes for my home decor.
While my green fingers are virtually non-existent, I’ve been doing a little online window shopping for colourful decorations and accessories, the actual plants I’ll leave to my husband because I’ve not got a clue where to start. I’ve spoken before about how I’d love to utilise our garage to create more space for my blogging props and resources (here), but one day I’d also love to build a small summer house like the ones currently available at www.gbcgroup.co.uk. They also sell adorable playhouses, gazebos and greenhouses. To check out their current offers click here. It would be the perfect place to relax and store all of Penny’s toys. I’d even like to buy a small mud kitchen and herb garden for the girls when they’re older too.
As for accessories, I have my eye on a collection of fun metal lanterns available in a range of colours from Dunelm Mill (£8.40 | here), Cactus-shaped Tealight Holders from Asda (£6 | here) and small multicoloured plant pots from IKEA from only £1 each (here). As for tableware, Maisons du Monde has quirky fold-way metal tables from £31.49 (here) as well as a variety of fun outdoor cushions with cute pineapple, lemon and cactus prints from £16.09 each (here). Finally on my garden wishlist is a set of beautiful flamingo stemless wine glasses as shown above from Dotmaison.com (£8 | here). I guess these aren’t technically garden related, but what’s the point of having a beautiful newly decorated garden if you can’t sit back and enjoy a glass of wine in it?!
