Featured Post: Garden Wish List

The summer is fast approaching, and this year, my garden furniture and accessories are firmly in need of some upgrading. As well as a new table, chairs and umbrella, and perhaps a sun lounger too if I can persuade hubby, I am also hoping to invest in some outdoor lighting to see us through those summer evenings as although it's fantastic to sit outside during the day, there is something magical about sitting outside at night.

I had a browse of the John Lewis website, and decided to create a wishlist of things that I would like for the garden. Some may be a little ambitious, but hey, a girl can dream right?

Here is my Wishlist: 

The Garden Room
The Garden Room has to be at the top of the list for my garden. Although I may have to wait until we have a slightly bigger garden, one day, one of these beauty's will be mine to hide away in or use for whatever purpose I deem it necessary to. I love the thought of a room at the bottom of the garden! I can just imagine having a space that was my very own!! (rather than the house which is the kid's domain!)

The Entertainer
Entertaining in the garden is something we love to do. We eat outside as much as possible when the weather is nice, and so this table would make a fantastic addition to our garden. I can just envisage having family and friends round, cooking a fantastic meal and everyone sitting at the table, enjoying a nice glass of wine and sharing a meal - fantastic!

Although we do tend to eat mainly vegetarian in our house, come the summer, hubby is just as eager to show off his manly talent for cooking the meat, as the next guy, and so he would be in his element with this BBQ. Who knows, I might be able to persuade him to get the veggie kebabs on there too!

The Atmosphere
Evenings spent in the Garden in the good weather are all about creating the right atmosphere. These colourful candle burners could transform any garden into an atmospheric evening retreat. I would love to have them in my garden!

What's not to love about these gorgeous butterfly lights! I can just imagine sitting outside on warm nights with these twinkling above me. I'm sure that the girls would love them too! These are  a definite on my wish list.

There does reach a point in the evening when the sun starts to disappear and some decent, more robust lighting is needed to keep the party going. I think that this outdoor candle-style lantern looks stylish for both summer and winter. I want two!!! If you are interested, the full range of John Lewis outdoor lighting can be found here

So that's my garden wishlist for this year. I might ave to save up for the garden room, but I think the butterfly lights and the candles may just be manageable! 

What's on your garden wishlist?
