Spring Wishlist

Yes, you read the title right! Although it might not feel like it, spring is right around the corner… we just have to survive the next month and a half of snow and cold and then we’ll be back to heavenly double-figure temperatures!

The snow, rain and wind is making everyone at AO dream of their spring weekend plans and summer holidays - so I thought what better way to get everyone in the mood for Spring/Summer ‘19 than a Spring Wishlist containing all things spring; bank holiday plans, interior decor and the creme de la creme of garden furniture!

Easter bank holiday plans

We’ll start with the most exciting part of Spring - the first bank holiday! Not only is it the first bank holiday, but it’s also Easter weekend!

Some people spend the weekend with their families, some spend the Christian holiday in church, and some spend it with their friends and having a good time.

Pretty much everywhere in the UK has local events and activities going on for bank holidays. Schools and churches hold Easter Fairs with fun activities which are great for the whole family! I take my little girls to their Easter Fairs every year to see their friends, search for an Easter Egg or 2 and have their faces painted - it’s always a really lovely day!

Host an Easter Lunch! We’re all about being the hosts with the most at AO Home – so call over family and friends and enjoy an Easter themed lunch. Roast lamb is great in a spring salad, add a few new potatoes to pay homage to a proper roast (just not as heavy). Set up an Easter Egg hunt for the kids and the grown kids too…



Get into the Spring-spirit with our stunning serveware! Host a spring BBQ and present your food on the most colourful dishes you’ve ever seen. Nothing says spring like bright colours…


Garden Bench

Make the most of your garden this year, after all, we’re spending this winter tucked up inside our homes staying as far away from the outdoors as possible!

Our personalised garden bench is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of the weather finally warming up! Plus, if we have an amazing summer like we did last year – you’ll get ample use out your new seat. Imagine sitting outside with your morning coffee and a lung full of fresh air!
