Alfresco Dining With Homesense

May 29, 2016

As the weather starts to improve we can finally eat outside. I think it’s my favourite thing to do during the May bank holiday. food somehow always tastes better outside. If you are looking for stylish and unusual products to take outside and make your dining experience even more special then make sure you check out the al fresco range at Homesense. I really love the idea behind Homesense. You can grab an amazing bargain with prices typically 60% less than the RRP. Items are sourced from around the world so buyers can find something a little different and unique.


As soon as you enter Homesense at the moment you are overwhelmed with colour. The Summer rangers are bright and cheerful with patterns and styles from around the world.



You can buy everything you need from drinks, to colourful plates and cups as well as larger items like tables and chairs for outdoor dining. This means you can get everything to match the same look.


I really like the pretty table and chairs set with rose decorations. This would look lovely in amongst the roses in the summer. I also love the ironwork frames for climbing roses. This would make a wonderful focal point for your garden.


There is also everything you need to eat outside. My favourite thing in the shop is the melamine plates. they look just like real plates and you would think they were made of china. Picnics have never been so stylish! Picnic baskets and blankets complete the look and would make dining in the garden or park feel like a 5 star restaurant.


I love the huge picnic baskets in Homesense but needed something for days out. We are planning to take lots of short day trips this year and I want to save money by packing our own lunches. This cute striped backpack is actually a food container with lots of handy pockets and a lining to keep your food cool. It is really lightweight and is the perfect size for a picnic for the family in the Summer. Th best thing about it was that it cost just £12.99. Seriously great value for money.


It took me ages to choose which picnic plates to buy as they were all so lovely. In the end, I went for these pretty floral plates. They are a lovely large size for a salad or a plate of picnic food.


There was also a large selection of drinks bottles. I seem to buy a new drinks bottle for school every other week. The girls were really happy with these bottles. They cost just £4.99 and have a handy infuser for putting chopped fruit and herbs to make your water taste nice. We bought all these for just over £20. I can’t wait for the bank holiday to get outside and have some al fresco fun. Let’s just hope we get some good weather.
