Dress for Summer
While you might be spending more time than usual at home, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat yourself to some new summer clothes! Use your next barbecue as an excuse to buy that sun dress you’ve had your eye on – a small change to your attire will make even the simplest cookout feel like the garden party you’ve been waiting for.

Keep the Coals Cooking
Rather than opting for a cheap disposable barbeque, invest in a good quality one this summer that will stand the test of time. A good barbecue will make sure that any food you pop on the grill has that authentic smoky flavour which is simply incomparable. B&Q have a fantastic range of barbecues to suit grillers of every experience level.
If you are thinking of doing a last-minute shop to grab your barbecue supplies, then think again. Planning ahead and spending that little bit more on your sausages and burgers will make all the difference when it comes to taste, as well as letting your family know that this barbecue is a special treat to look forward to!

Pub Worthy Pints
If someone in your household misses enjoying the sunshine at their favourite beer garden, then why not bring the pub to your home? Ensure that your make-shift pub has the finest of pints by taking your pick from the many different lager and ale hampers available at Beer52. This is a simple way to add some fun to your barbecue and the perfect excuse to find a new favourite beer!
While the food will be undeniably delicious, barbeques are also about spending time in the garden and chatting with your loved ones while the sun goes down on a warm evening. Add a touch of cosiness and atmosphere to your outdoor space with these beautiful outdoor line lights from John Lewis. They’ll certainly give the garden a magical glow as you enjoy the evening’s antics, but don’t forget to keep some blankets close to hand in case the night turns cold!
