Oh, those summer nights… there’s nothing like relaxing with friends, watching the sun go down and letting the evening stretch on. Why not make the most of the glorious weather with an extra special get-together? Pick up a few things at the Square to make your evening a memorable one.
Start by making your outdoor area look extra special with a couple of decorative touches. We love the candlelight holders and lanterns from Zara, which can be dotted around the garden and added to your table for the perfect atmosphere come sunset.

So that guests don’t catch a chill and you can linger outside a little longer, invest in a few blankets which can be folded over your garden chairs until they’re needed. They will also come in handy come Autumn next month – we love this traditional checked wool blanket.

Finally, head to Partridges to pick up some mouth-watering bites that will perfect your BBQ. There’s a wide range of condiments to choose from, including all varieties of mustard and salad dressings, as well as freshly baked bread and meats to take home. For a naughty treat after dinner, pick up some delicious truffles, perfect for enjoying alongside that final cup of coffee or cheeky tipple.
