May bank holiday is finally here, meaning a glorious 3 day weekend. Whilst the weather forecast may not be too promising, don't let that stop you enjoying your break or exploring the great outdoors. Keeping everyone entertained can be easier than you think!
Indulge in the traditional British seaside experience where fish and chips, ice cream and sand castle building are the main attractions. Get lucky on the 2p slot machines, dip your toes in the sea or relax while the kids turn you into a sand sculpture. Scarborough, Brighton and Blackpool are the perfect coastal escapes, or search for many more of Britain's hidden beaches if you're looking for something a little different.
Enjoying a decadent afternoon tea with friends is always a fancy affair. However, you may like to host your own alfresco get together this bank holiday and rejoice good times with close family and friends. If you're lucky enough to catch a spot of sun, you can create the perfect garden party with fresh mimosa's, homemade cloudy lemonade and fruit ice pops for the little ones. Spread bruschetta nibbles and crudités around the table and present your guests with freshly charred BBQ meat and veg to create a fresh and delicious spring inspired menu. Entertain your guests with music and party games whilst watching the sun go down. Our beautiful tea-light holders will add ambience and relaxation to your spring table spread!
If you're hit with a wet and gloomy day, get the kids to raid the linen cupboard and make a giant blanket fort. What could be a better way to engage your children in imaginative play, and who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned fort? Create a simple sheet tent between the sofa’s by hanging a bed sheet over a piece of string/rope attached to furniture or sturdy fixtures on the walls and use clothes pegs to attach things together. Throw in some sofa cushions, blankets and fairy lights to set a cosy atmosphere and let their imaginations run wild.
