Al fresco season is here, and pulling together an impromptu patio party has never been easier.
No table? No trouble. Grab the coffee table, re-jig the rugs and throw down some cushions to create a cool, cosy vibe.
Last-minute parties are great until it's time to seat the guests. The solution - think smart with your seating. Whip out the deckchairs and pull out the pods for an inventive and quirky quick fix.
