The British summer has finally arrived this week. Temperatures have soared to the mid-twenties and, of course, we’ve dusted off that bottle of Pimm’s and dug out our flip flops. It’s perfect timing too as Feather and Nest launch their summer collection this bank holiday weekend. There’s a lot to look forward to over the summer months, both in store and online. Here are our favourite picks from our new outdoor living collection to help you beat the heat!
1. For days by the pool
The feeds of Instagrammers were filled with inflatable swans and flamingos last summer. But this year, there’s a new float in town and it’s heart-shaped! We love this pool float from ban.do, it’s super chic and you can actually recline on it, too (not so easy on a swan!).
We’ve even got drink floats for your Pimm’s so you don’t need to leave the pool to keep hydrated.
But when you do, we’ve got you covered with ban.do’s stylish beach towels.
A day by the pool has never been so much fun.
2. For keeping cool on the go
We’re home to a range of brands at Feather and Nest. We love searching for lesser-known British designers, but we also love stocking fantastic established brands like Kate Spade. The initial trend is hot this season and so we’re loving these initialised cups.
They’ll definitely keep you cool while on the go and make a great present for those hard-to- buy-for stylish friends.
3. For those warm summer evenings
We’re big fans of lighting at Feather and Nest. Those of you who have visited our store know that we stock a whole host of interesting options from string lights to bespoke pendants. New for summer we’ve got a selection of outdoor lighting for when you’re entertaining in the garden. These Festoon string lights will transform any marquee, patio or terrace and create the perfect atmosphere for memorable evenings.
Choose from clear, frosted and coloured Festoon lights; you’ll be sure to find a style to match your outdoor space
4. For picnics in the park
What says British summer more than a picnic? Grab your picnic blanket and set up in the shade with our fantastic collection of melamine accessories by Rice. Melamine is essential for a picnic with kids as it’s extremely durable and avoids the risk of any accidents! We’re stocking colourful Rice cups, bowls and Tutti Frutti food boxes which are sure to put a smile on your face. And the best part? They’re dishwasher safe!
5. For a refreshing treat
Shopping can be thirsty work. So why not pop in and grab an ice lolly? We’re really excited to be stocking Ice Kitchen’s artisan ice lollies over the summer months. Handmade and 100% natural – there’s nothing artificial in sight! These gourmet lollies are twists on classic flavours, as well as unusual and creative combinations. The flavours for 2017 include ‘Mojito Poptail’ and ‘Strawberries and Cream’ – absolutely delicious for both kids and adults.
We hope you love our summer range as much as we do. There’s lots to look out for online, but we hope to see you in store soon for an ice lolly!
Happy Summer from Feather and Nest.
