Staycation: The H&M buys you need for your outdoor space this summer

Summer is finally here, and much as it will no doubt be a bit of a different one, it doesn't mean we can't make it an absolutely lovely one too.

For most of us, this summer will be one spent close to home. There might be day trips or a sneaky night away here and there, but, for most part, we'll all be turning our homes into the perfect staycation spots – and that goes for our outdoor space as much as our indoor space.

To really maximise the season, why not transform your patio into an extra living room?

We are obsessed with the latest collection at H&M Home – making over your outdoor space one gorgeous buy at a time.

Leave the doors wide open! Design details made of natural materials and styled with green plates link the dining table with the summer outside.

Tip: Serve your sweets on wooden serving plates, and style your outdoor furniture with lots and lots of cushions for that cosy summer feeling.

What are we picking up? Well, these 10 for sure:

1. Mango wood cake stand

Now that you have basically become a pastry chef with all that lockdown baking you've been doing...

How amazing is this?! Whether you use it to wheel out BBQ supplies or as an outdoor bar cart, we'd argue every garden NEEDS one of these this summer.

Love the colour of this – it reminds me of the beach, and I can't wait to use it to serve fruit platters or slices of freshly cut watermelon.
