Garden Reveal

Anyone else feel like the weather is turning? I thought I better share my garden reveal before everything gets all wintry and I miss the boat! Remember my moodboard from a few months ago?

Well here is the semi-finished result!

We bought the furniture from Argos. The quality isn't the highest but then it was far cheaper than any other similar ones on the market so beggars can't be choosers. I think it's fine for what we need it for but if you have kids or heavy handed friends, you might need something more robust.

I moved the rug from the living room into the garden for our garden party because unfortunately I live in Manchester and its rains - A LOT. The constant back and forth with the cushions is already wearing thin so throwing a rug into the mix might not be the smartest purchase.

I already had some Sainsburys outdoor cushions from last year which I bought in the sale because I knew I'd have a reason to use them one day! Anyone else constantly doing this?! I added some H&M cushions into the mix and voila! In case I haven't said this before - H&M is fab for cheap cushion covers that are always on trend and they are great quality too, especially the conscious range!

The lights are a hand me down from my Mum when she moved house - I'm still holding out for the festoon lights but I actually really love the playful pops of colour these lights bring! 

Next was a quick trip to Wyevale garden centre to purchase a herb planter and replace the bay tree we killed (sorry Ben's Mum) and that's all it needed to finish it off. I added sunflowers because sunflowers are always a good idea and some outdoor dinnerware for styling purposes. 

We're really pleased with how it looks and I have loved spending the heatwave out here sunbathing. I also love enjoying the light nights, batwatching with Bojangles and dining alfresco.
