Summer BBQ – homeware pieces

In England it is Summer. Finally! It has been really hot everyday for at least a month now, I still can't believe I don't need to take a cardigan or jumper out with me. Now that it is sunny what better way to celebrate than with a BBQ, and whether you are a meat eater or a vegetarian like me, there are so many ways to make your BBQ a bit more 'Pinterest' with certain pieces of homeware. Basically I really wanted these Mason glasses and I have put a whole post together around them! One day I will be able to do a blog post on my flat when I have been able to afford to buy all these things I post about! Anyhow, I hope this post gives you some inspiration for a BBQ. If it does and you have a BBQ, why not post about it and let me know!? Right, let's get started.
1. Paper party plates, Not on the High Street, £5.95 for eight
The trendiest paper plates on the block?!

2. Pack of five tissue paper pom poms, Not on the High Street, £4.99

Obsessed with shades of blue at the moment. These would look cute hung from trees.

3. Rice melamime pitcher, Tea and Kate, £13.95

Pimm's anyone? Or freshly made lemonade?

4. Chevron print paper straws, Not on the High Street, £4 for 25

I've never actually used paper straws, but how could I not include them if I was going for a 'Pinterest' feel?!

5. Carrousel round tray, Tea and Kate, £24

Every BBQ needs a tray to carry out the drinks on!

6. Glass Mason jar with handle, Not on the High Street, £4.75 per jar

7. Set of six glass jars, Not on the High Street, £20 for six

Which do you prefer – with or without the handle?

Sorry the majority of these pieces are from one website but they are the best for these type of products! Please let me know of any other websites that are good for party bits and bobs!


  1. I ADORE Not On The High Street. If I could, I think I'd furnish about 80% of my house (if I had one) from there.

    Love the glass mason jars and the coloured straws! :) xx
