Must-have sun loungers

With summer fast approaching, we’re all looking forward to spending more time in our gardens. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to rest and wind down, or a place to socialise with your family, there’s nothing better than a good quality sun lounger. 

At Elements Home and Garden, we have an extensive range of premium sun loungers, to suit any space, style or mood. We pride ourselves on our first-class customer service and we will go out of our way to ensure that your leisure time is well spent. 

Florida Sun Lounger Set 

Sleek, modern and built to last. The cosy, deep filled cushions, complemented by its fully reclining back, make for a seat that you’ll never want to get up from. It’s perfect for spending an afternoon alone in the sun, reading a book or just having a rest. It comes complete with a side table, ideal for holding a large glass of wine. 

Unity Double Sun Lounger 

An elegant space for you and your favourite person to relax. Its adjustable multi-position headrest allows you to set your own comfort level, and the smooth grey palette blends nicely with any outdoor space. It’s great for socialising or even taking a nap. 

Orlando Sunlounger Set 

This Orlando set comes with two lavish loungers, and a glass-topped coffee table – great to load up with snacks. The UV-resistant, weatherproof Rattan requires very little maintenance, and even the pillows are showerproof. If you need a break from the sun, why not take shelter under one of our gazebos or pergolas

Winchester Sun Lounger Set  

These two sophisticated loungers are topped with generously filled cushions and come with a matching drinks table. The high strength, powder-coated aluminium frame is lightweight and rust-resistant, meaning it can be left outside 365 days a year. 

Allure Sun Lounger 

If you’re looking for something sleek yet simple, the Allure Sun Lounger is the lounger for you. It has a smooth, streamlined design, and its unique, quick-dry foam means it can be left outside all year round. Grab a cold drink and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright Christmas decorations.

The couple shared all over social media their extravagant Christmas decorations which we put together for them. We transformed their front porch and hallway of their Essex home into a Christmas wonderland dream, and they couldn’t be happier with the result!

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright opted for candy-cane themed Christmas decorations, starting with a lovely Christmas arch framing the front door and two nutcrackers standing on either side of the door. For extra festive cheer, red and white light-up presents were also added to the entrance.

Inside, the couple opted for a large Christmas tree in a candy-cane colour theme. The team at Elements Home & Garden decorated the tree with red-and-white baubles, Santa “stop here” signs, decorative spiral lollipops, bespoke popcorn decorations and candy cane decorations.

Our team decorated these with peacock-themed baubles, dark blue and golden baubles, blue peacock-themed ribbons, other golden and navy blue accessories plus, gorgeous decorating peacocks to top the decorations off!

A personal message from Russell, the owner of Elements Home and Garden

Addressing the stock issues that have occurred over the past couple of months and the actions we are taking at Elements to resolve these issues 

On the 23rd of March 2021, the Ever Given, a large container ship, ran aground in the Suez Canal. This event was largely reported in the media due to the extensive problems it caused for shipping across the world. 

The ramifications to companies worldwide are still being felt months after this situation occurred due to the huge backlog that the 6-day disruption caused and the large amount of shipping that needs to be corrected. 

Elements Home and Garden have been a casualty of this event along with many other companies suffering major delays in getting our imported products into the country. Because of this many of our items are currently out of stock, however, we are working with our suppliers to get pre-order dates. 

Over the past month, we have been working extremely hard and paying extra shipping fees to get our supply train back on track so our customers can have their products as quickly as possible. 

Unfortunately, this is a situation that was completely out of our hands but we would still like to personally apologise to all of our current and potential customers for the issues this has caused in using our website. 

We hope to be back in business as usual soon and we request your patience at this difficult time. 

Moving forward we will be making changes to allow you to be notified when items come back into stock or to pre-order where possible so you have access to our range. 

Kind Regards, 

Russell Worricker 

How to host the perfect afternoon tea

Whether you’ve been dreaming about having high tea in a luxurious hotel or simply miss going out with your family for a nice afternoon tea – why not throw your own tea party at home? Get your best china out of the cupboards, turn the kettle on and it’s time to host the perfect afternoon tea.

Get comfortable seating.

Afternoon tea can’t be enjoyed if you are sitting down on uncomfortable, worn-out chairs. If your garden furniture has been out all winter, is rusting and could really use an upgrade, do it. Upgrading your garden chairs and furniture will not only make sure your guests are comfortable but will also guarantee you spend more time in your outdoor space.

At Elements Home & Garden, we supply a variety of high-quality outdoor furniture, including outdoor dining tables which will be perfect to seat your afternoon tea guests. The Timor 280 Outdoor Dining Table and the Extending Brown Kingston Corner Dining Set are great options to seat all your visitors in style.

Round dining tables are also a fantastic option and will save space. Imagine your garden or patio with the Ascot Round Sofa Dining Set with Rising Table or the LA 8 Seat Round Ice Bucket Dining Table Set with Lazy Susan Table – wouldn’t it look stunning?

Make a delicious menu.

One of the most important parts of an afternoon tea is the food, we can’t deny that. We suggest setting out some common tea options but also some unique flavours that you love, so you can introduce your guests to some new teas. Pair tea with finger sandwiches and some pastries – don’t forget the warm scones with cream and jam!

Be prepared for the rain.

Even if the weather forecast says otherwise, always be prepared for the rain. It’s England, after all. Plus, as going indoors is out of the question due to the restrictions in place, your outdoor space is the only place where you will be able to spend time with people outside your household.

The Got It Covered Pop Up Grey Gazebo is the perfect shading solution to keep everyone covered from the sun or rain. It can be quickly set up and will be easily stored. The Royce Junior Taupe Parasol is also a great shading option and will look fabulous in any outdoor space.

Set the scene.

Lay down your finest cutlery, tablecloths and china to create the perfect afternoon tea setting. Take it one step further and pick a theme for your special afternoon event – Mad Hatter’s afternoon tea, Harry Potter-themed afternoon tea, Sherlock-themed afternoon tea… the choices are endless.

Stay warm.

As the sun is setting, you start to feel a chilly breeze and think that your gathering should end soon. Not so fast! If everyone’s enjoying themselves, an afternoon tea party can quickly become a soiree. Make sure your guests are warm by adding a fire pit next to your dining table. Alternatively, you can choose to go for an outdoor dining table with a firepit. Some of our top picks include the Ambition 8 Seat Rectangular Firepit Outdoor Dining Set and the Pulse Rectangular Corner Dining Set with Firepit Table.

If you have any questions regarding our outdoor furniture, don’t hesitate to contact our team on 01279 755294 or [email protected]. Want to try one of our garden sets? Come over to our showrooms.

Think about seating.

Prepare for chilly nights.

Don’t let the cold breeze stop your long-waited reunion. We have available a large collection of fire pit sets ideal to keep your and your guests cosy all night long, including individual fire pits, such as the Cosibrixx 90 Anthracite Fire Pit Table, as well as dining table sets inclusive of fire pits, such as Ambition 8 Seat Rectangular Firepit Charcoal Dining Set.
