10 of our best summer alfresco dining essentials

Posted by Elizabeth Seyi 23/07/2021 0 Comment(s) Journal,

Whether you love entertaining guests in the fresh air and hosting garden parties, or enjoy kicking back and relaxing after a hard day of work, the option to dine alfresco is one of the many benefits of the warm summer months.

To add that extra pizazz to your set-up, here are 10 of our favourite dining statement pieces for eating in the sun.

  1. Lanterns

For dining outside around dusk, what could be better than a gorgeous lantern to complement the setting sun, while still making your table stylish and homely?

  1. Stainless steel serving bowl

Whether you prefer a round platter, a large serving bowl, or a unique boat-shaped bowl, plate your food with finesse atop a gleaming stainless steel serving bowl.

  1. Cake stand

Keep your freshly baked show-stopping cake safe from the elements and crafty bugs or serve up an afternoon tea full of goodies on one of our fantastic cake stands.

  1. Cheeseboard

A fully stocked and beautifully presented cheese board is one of our favourite dining statement pieces. You can accessorise it even further with a set of matching cheese knives.

  1. Quince jam

Take your cheeseboard to the next level by also including some bits of fruit and veg for decoration, and of course, a selection of tasty chutneys. For a Mediterranean twist, why not try the Morphakis Quince Jam? After all, it pairs fantastically with a slice of Manchego cheese and a sweet or savoury Spanish cracker.

  1. Wine cooler

If you fancy cracking open a bottle of bubbly or indulging in a white or rosé that is best served ice-cold, then your alfresco dining set-up isn’t complete without a handy wine cooler.

  1. Wine bottle holder

Of course, some wines are best served at room temperature, so we cannot forget them! For a bottle of red on those warm summer nights, keep it safe and secure in a large wine bottle holder in the centre of your table.

  1. Tealights

Make your alfresco dining experience into a romantic date night by adding some tealights dotted around the garden. For added ambience, put the candles into a stylish tealight holder.

  1. Serving tray

Unless you are pushing the boat out and having a good old barbeque, the chances are that you are going to be doing the cooking inside and bringing it out when it’s done. As both an addition to your dining statement pieces and for that extra security, why not check out our range of serving trays?

  1. Food picks

And last but not least, add a decorative touch to your appetisers, a bowl of olives, or a charcuterie board with these quirky food picks – perfect for grabbing those tempting morsels of food.
