With the summer rearing its head over the past few days, it got us thinking – why don’t we spend more time outdoors? While we in the UK like a BBQ every now and again, it doesn’t seem like we take full advantage of the sun in the evenings. Sitting outside with some friends, a good meal and a nice bottle of wine sounds like heaven to us and there’s no reason not to do it.

So thinking along these lines, which of our country kitchen accessories would be great for eating outdoors? The first thing that comes to mind are our Gluggle jugs. Perfect for holding your wine and water, they make a great feature and talking point. Or if you want to keep your wine in the bottle, a wine cooler and Salmon Bottle Stopper are a great alternative option.

One of the best things about eating outside during summer is sharing food and everyone tucking in. To make this easy we’ve got a great choice of serving platters that will fit perfectly in a country kitchen. With various animal designs, the feeling of being outside and using country-inspired kitchenware will really keep you in good spirits.

On occasion you might have someone over that you need to impress – the in-laws for instance. If this is the case you might need to get out your very best quality china, but luckily we’ve got you covered here too. Within our range of accessories for country kitchens you’ll find a variety of butter dishes and salt and pepper sets that are sure to impress your visitors. Featuring a variety of different animals including pheasants, dogs and cows, they are smart, sophisticated and lovely to use.

We hope we’ve inspired you to try out some al fresco dining this summer and we’d love to see some pictures of our kitchen accessories in use. Send them through on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
