Meet you at the bar

Bar in your garden? No brainer. This marble-effect one, from John Lewis, comes with two funky bar stools, ice draws, tools and a cutting board for prepping cocktails. Just add booze.

Garden glamour

Add a little sophistication to your outdoor space with this funky Fatboy chandelier, available from A White Room. It also comes in green, but I’m loving this transparent version – the bold red wiring gives it a quirky, contemporary edge.

All fired up

You wanna pizza me?

Rustle up some dough (easier than it sounds), scatter on some toppings and whack it in this pizza oven of dreams to be cooked in a minute flat. Dorset-based Gozney supply The Pig hotel group and the Franco Manca restaurant chain so you’re definitely in safe hands with this bit of kit. There’s also a petite, ‘real life’ alternative available at a friendlier price point.

Let it pour

For wine in the garden, these YETI tumblers are a no brainer to avoid any broken glass incidents (we’ve all been there). The tumblers come in loads of bright colours, but I’m calling dibs on this sleek stainless steel.

Mirror Mirror

If you follow one garden trend this year, make it this one. Hang this arched mirror up on the wall or prop it up against pots to give the illusion of a larger space. Find it online at Perch & Parrow.

Pot Perfect

Add a splash of colour to your patio with this set of bright fibreglass planters from MADE. We love the contrasting colours and modern geometric shape.

Keep you cool

How cool (sorry) is this retro drinks cooler? Ideal for keeping your vino chilled when you want to catch every second of sunlight outdoors. For Mr M, there’s a nifty built in bottle opener on the side. Available from Wayfair.

Side table chic

An absolute steal from Argos (anyone else getting Oliver Bonas vibes?), this gold mesh drinks table has a detachable tray for serving Mojitos, obvs.

I like it hot

At a friendlier price point than a permanent hot tub, this CosySpa is a great alternative and much more attractive than other inflatable options that are out there. It comes in a four or six person size and features a whopping 130 jets. Blow it up in five mins flat.
