Fun in the Sun

There’s nothing I love more than entertaining family and friends al-fresco on a sunny day. Because I’m all about style, I embarked on an exciting adventure to discover the best outdoor products available at Liverpool ONE.

There are different looks to explore when it comes to exterior home wares - from cool and contemporary to retro and kitsch - so choose a theme that represents your personal style and be sure to accessorise it with handy gadgets and practical pieces like the inspired Spotty Jumbo Food Umbrella from Lakeland.

Ensuring that the kids are entertained is key to allowing vital sunbathing and barbecuing time, so I’ve included some fun outdoor games that will keep them out of mischief and may even tempt you to join in!
