Are You Eating Outdoors? Try These Delicious Alfresco Recipes...

Are you, like me, spending so much more time outdoors this summer, enjoying the sunshine?

As well as going to the beach and walking in lovely Mount Edgcumbe Park, we've been eating outdoors as much as we can.

We've made really good use of our linen napkins, bowl covers and bread bags this year, which are perfect for alfresco dining. 

 I've included some ideas for outdoor eating below, plus some lovely recipes for summer food.

If you're using any of our collection for outdoor eating, please send me a photo, I'd love to see it!


Reusable Bowl Covers For Outdoor Eating

Bee Bowl Covers Set of Three from the Honey Bee Collection by Helen Round

Try our multi-sized set of three reusable bowl covers, which are work well for covering smaller bowls or jugs. 

If you're catering for larger numbers then our large reusable bowl covers are perfect for covering large salad bowls, and other dishes, great for family gatherings or parties, inside or outside.

The elasticated edge hugs the edge of each bowl, allowing you to keep food covered, protecting it from dust or flies, without using plastic film.

Choose your size, colour and design from our lovely linen range. 

All our bowl covers are washable and are made locally here in Cornwall by our small team.

Alfresco Dining with Linen Accessories

Create a magical outdoor table setting with gorgeous linen napkins and placemats, in a range of colours and styles.

Linen Dining Gift Bundle includes two sets of linen napkins and placements from the Garden Collection by Helen Round

Both napkins and placemats are packed in sets of two or you can take advantage of our Dining Gift Bundle, pictured above, with four napkins and four placemats, which offers really good value.

Linen is a natural fabric which gets softer as you wash it. It is great for repelling stains and is such a wonderful fabric for dining, offering the perfect blend of luxury and practicality.


Bread Bags Keep Your Bread Fresh

Perfect for storing loaves, rolls, delicious artisan breads and patisserie, this stylish dark blue and natural striped linen bread bag, helps keep bread fresher for longer. 

Striped Linen Bread Bag from the Striped Collection by Helen Round

It's great for using outdoors, since you can turn the top down to create a basket which is perfect for serving slices of bread and rolls.

Say goodbye to plastic bag storage and hello to a multi-use bread bag!
