Elevate Your Outdoor Dining Experience This Year

As the warmer months approach and outdoor gatherings become the norm, there’s no better time to elevate your outdoor dining experience.

This can be done in a variety of ways, but one of the easiest ways to start is to include vibrant, colourful accessories in your space. This really takes things to the next level. Adding bright accessories to your outdoor space can instantly transform it into a lively and inviting setting for entertaining guests or enjoying meals with family. From accessories and plates, to glassware and decorations, incorporating colour can inject personality and style into your outdoor dining area.


The Impact of Colour on Outdoor Dining

Colour plays a significant role in setting the mood and atmosphere of any space, and outdoor dining areas are no exception. Vibrant colours can evoke feelings of joy, energy and creativity, creating a lively and dynamic ambiance for gatherings. Whether you prefer bold and saturated shades, or soft pastels, choosing the right colours can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your outdoor space. It’s the ideal way to make dining al fresco a memorable experience for you and your guests.

If you are able to create a complete outdoor kitchen / dining area, there are some amazing options in beautiful warm, memory making styles available now that are simply perfect for the full outdoor experience. For adding colour to existing areas, just see our suggestions below.


The Best Colourful Accessories for Outdoor Dining

  • Furniture

    – You can add colour into your outdoor dining area with the simple addition of brightly coloured furniture. Opt for chairs, tables and benches in vibrant shades such as turquoise, coral or yellow to add a pop of colour to your patio or deck (We particularly like the very affordable bistro tables at Jacks Garden Store in Surrey) . Consider mixing and matching different colours for a playful and eclectic look, or stick to a single shade for a more cohesive design scheme. (This is a great look for seating from Sheffield based furniture company Laura James)

  • Plates and Tableware

    – Your outdoor dining experience can be upgraded with colourful plates, bowls and tableware. Choose dinnerware sets in bold patterns and bright colours to add visual interest to your table settings. You can have a lot of fun mixing and matching patterns, designs and colours. We have recently discovered Chalk Interiors of London, for that quintessentially British feel to our outdoor dining experience.

  • Glassware

    – Consider elevating your outdoor dining experience with colourful glassware that adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your table settings. Opt for glasses in vibrant shades such as blue, green and red to make a statement and complement your dinnerware. Coloured glassware can also create beautiful reflections and light effects as the sun sets, adding a magical touch to your outdoor dining experience. 

For a magical touch, we suggest a visit to the British Ironworks Centre (Online or in person).

Adding bright accessories to your outdoor dining area is a simple and effective way to enhance its visual appeal and create a welcoming, stylish and memorable environment for entertaining guests.

Whether you’re hanging out with friends or enjoying meals with family, a colourful design scheme can transform your dining experience and make it unforgettable.

As you can see, creating a vibrant, fun space in the outdoor area of your home certainly has its advantages. It’s a wonderful way to make the most of the gorgeous weather and it adds something special to your garden.

Pro tip: Creating a space that’s functional, yet aesthetically pleasing can be stressful, why not let professionals take the strain. Its not as expensive as you may think.
