The days of ‘finding yourself’ by stuffing rolled up clothing into a rucksack may be well and truly behind you, but that doesn’t mean you’re not fighting a daily internal battle of booking a ticket to sunnier climes. Opt for Mediterranean-inspired accessories to cure your wanderlust and salute summer - even when the temperature doesn’t follow suit!
The blaggers guide to a Mediterranean party
- Show your party guests what a culture vulture you are, by replacing chairs with embroidered cushions and stools
- Bring the island vibes with candle-lit lanterns that line the path of your Riad/flat
- Whip out the olives in terracotta ceramics (preferably served by a hunky, sun kissed waiter)
- A wooden pestle and mortar makes the perfect center piece – no one needs to know that you’ve never used it before
- For the ultimate al fresco aesthetic, disguise your old flatpack furniture with a mosaic runner in sumptuous shades of blue and white
- Give your guests the gift of warmth. Blankets weaved with brightly coloured patterns should help them forget where they are
- Aperitivo. Always.
