It’s officially summer, which means barbecues, garden parties and picnics are all on the agenda. Make the experience special by bringing a sheepskin rug or two to throw on top of the picnic blanket, and have proper glasses, cutlery and linen napkins in your picnic basket (TK Maxx does great baskets).

Tablescaping is not just for indoors. If you haven’t yet been to Brown Thomas Dublin’s new pop-up tablescaping shop, Table Stories, now is the time. It has an impressive selection of brands, including Polspotten, Bornn, Vaisselle, Bordallo Pinheiro, Soho Home, Popolo, Hay, Lisa Corti, Maison Balzac, Ottolenghi and one of my absolute favourite Irish brands, The Designed Table.
