Summer Dining Essentials That Are Perfect For Father's Day

It’s al fresco season, which means it’s time to take Father’s Day celebrations and those summer socials outside – hooray!

Here at RSG, we love entertaining during the summer months

It feels informal and carefree, and there’s nothing like feeling the grass under your bare feet as you bite into a juicy morsel still sizzling from the BBQ.

Summer gatherings are all about creating magical moments, so whether it’s dinner a deux, you’re celebrating a fab dad or father figure in your life or putting on a picnic spread, everything you need for spectacular summer dining is here.

Let’s tuck in!

1. Portable Suitcase BBQ in Khaki Green or Burnt Orange, £40

A portable BBQ is a summer essential, we're sure fathers across the nation agree! This little beauty has a removable, refillable charcoal tray and separate grill, making it perfect for parks, beaches and camping trips. Plus it packs down into a neat little suitcase, and comes in fab colours (khaki or burnt orange). We love! 

2. Beautiful Yellow Festoon Lights, £48

Bring a fun, festival vibe to your gathering with these beautiful lights. The flex matches the warm yellow of the bulbs (the colour of summer, after all) and they’re connectable – get good old dad to add as many sets as you like to create a magical setting for your soiree under the stars

3. Recycled Vintage Design Outdoor Rug, available in Green, Pink and Orange, £35

These rugs are the perfect place to park your bot during summer festival downtime (if such a thing exists), or using as a picnic blanket on which to lay out delicious nibbles. We love the way it creates a fiesta forever kinda feeling wherever you go. Sing it, Lionel! 

4. Black & Natural Stripe Outdoor Cushion, £25

This gorgeous outdoor cushion is as soft and squishy as it is pretty, plus the weather-resistant polyester makes it super-hardwearing for summer - we sense fatherly approval is forthcoming! Style against a wrought iron bench or scatter across our recycled outdoor rugs

5. Cotton Green Stripe Placemat, £9

These gorgeous placemats just scream summer! Featuring fresh green line detailing, they’re made from 100% cotton and look just as stylish whether you’re handing out burgers and buns or creating a more formal table setting

6. Black Metal Garden Table & Chairs Set, £245

Ooh la la! This gorgeous vintage-style table and chairs set are pure Parisian cafe culture chic, in your very own garden, no less. Featuring beautifully ornate detailing and an inky black finish, these are perfect for a secluded little nook.

7. Banana Serving Plate, £34

Get ready for some fabulously fruity summer fun with this quirky piece of serveware. Pile high with summer fruits for guests to enjoy, and love how the colours really pop against the yellow. You know what we say – your home, your rules

8. Orange Bamboo Food Cover, £18

Nothing takes the shine off a delicious-looking summer buffet table or glorious foody get-together like a persistent wasp, but fear not - before Dad reaches for the rolled-up newspaper, we have the perfect solution. This bamboo and mesh food cover means you can protect your culinary efforts and enjoy your food without uninvited guests buzzing all over it. Fabulous work. 

9. Set of 4 Old Leopard Brewery Coasters, £6.95

Guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any Indian Pale Ale aficionados in your crew, these striking and quirky coasters come with a storage tin that features the same design, and are perfect for either indoor or outdoor use. Cheers!
