Bring some classic coastal elegance to your garden or patio with the Sainsbury’s Home Shore Outdoors collection of dinnerware and accessories. It’s the perfect way to set the scene for summery afternoon picnics and long, lazy evenings entertaining al fresco with friends and family.

Whether you’re planning an informal BBQ or an extravagant summer soirée feast, this range will help create a sophisticated and contemporary setting that’ll see you and your guests through dinner, and well into the later hours.

Rich blue tones, rustic materials and timeless nautical stripes come together across picnicware, outdoor accessories and fun gardening essentials, which when combined will achieve a classic seaside-inspired setting.

Arrange chambray patterned textiles from the Shore Outdoors range on garden furniture and benches to create a laid-back coastal vibe for your guests to relax (with a chilled glass of wine, of course), before laying out your table with statement stripe runners, ombre glasses and fun fish platters.

Add stylish solar lanterns – brilliant for creating a softly lit ambience long after the sun has gone down. All that’s called for is the sounds of summer and some colourful salads, dips and crudités for easy, informal entertaining.

And our favourite pieces from the Sainsbury’s Home Shore Outdoors collection?  The cute, quirky garden additions, such as the woven willow oystercatcher and pretty bird feeder are guaranteed to breathe a sense of fun into any outside space.

It really is so simple to tailor this trend to suit any type of outdoor area, just think outdoor paradise and let the good times roll!

The Sainsbury’s Home Shore Outdoors collection is available to shop in selected Sainsbury’s stores now, but in case you’d like a sneaky peek, here’s some of our favourite pieces from the range to help inspire…
