Dining Alfresco with Folksy

Inspired by the warm weather, I thought I'd have a browse around Folksy for items which would contribute to the perfect summer BBQ.

Here's what I came up with!!

First of all, why do men suddenly think they can cook when you light the BBQ. In reality you've probably been slaving in the kitchen for hours, marinading meat, preparing kebabs, making homemade burgers and salads. He has maybe had a token tidy up of the garden, then sat with his feet up having a refreshing beer. But somehow, the second the BBQ is lit.. he morphs into Masterchef!! Recognise this scenario...???

Anyway, I do love the apron shown above by has beautiful nautical inspired home accessories and these cushions are perfect accessories for garden furniture!

Finally, keep children occupied with this hand crocheted, giant snakes and ladders game by

Enjoy the sun!!
