This week is National Gardening Week and as we inch closer and closer to warm weather, I find myself daydreaming about beautiful outdoor living spaces and glorious gardens. There are some really extravagant living spaces out there, but I’m mostly drawn to natural, cosy spaces meant for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors with a glass of wine, some good company or a good book.

It’s got me thinking about the outdoor living additions Big Little Thing have selected for this season, many of which I will be adding to my own garden. Here are our Top 5 picks…

Hanging T-Lights

A beautiful outdoor living accessory which look glorious strung from tree branches with soft flickering candlelight. These charming Hanging T-light Holders are made from recycled clear glass and are a super extra in garden.

Vintage Garden Lanterns

This pair of Shabby-chic white garden lanterns are another great find to feature recycled glass.  The glass sits in a rustic wire holder.  They are a lovely way to light a path or add some light to your garden.  They are also ideal venue accessories for occasions such as summer weddings and parties.

Slate Signs

A natural slate plaque hung by rustic string is a great garden sign. Whether it is stating ‘Dad’s shed’ or ‘Mum’s Vegetable Patch’ it is a delightful sign to add to the garden gate or shed door. They can be personalised with any wording. They are one of our best sellers day in and day out.
