Promotional Feature with Sainsbury's Home

Capture elements of the seaside with this nautical-inspired collection...

The thing we love most about summer is the fact it gives us every excuse to entertain outdoors, and what could be more timeless than a nautical-chic table theme?

Inspired by the natural elements of the seaside, Sainsbury's Home new Shore outdoor collection will add a sophisticated element to your dinner party plans. From patio to picnics, this range has everything you need to ensure your lunches and soirées look as stylish as your menu plans.

Bringing together organic forms and textures, Shore's range of picnicware, outdoor accessories and gardening essentials feature cute, in-house designed boat illustrations, classic sailor stripes and rich blue tones, that when combined achieve an effortless elegance.

Transport your guests to a breezy beach scene, using table runners and textiles in a nautical colour palette that'll complement any dining arrangement, while gorgeous rattan-style solar lanterns will light your aprés dessert conversations long after the sun has gone down.

And if you are thinking more along the family picnic lines, then Shore's fabulous range of outdoor tableware is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Forget mismatched plastic plates - coordinate your al fresco theme with stylish striped cutlery and comfy picnic rugs. All that's left for you do to is pack some delicious sandwiches, snacks and salads.
