How to enjoy the winter weather

Baby it’s cold outside and we just love it! It’s tempting to snuggle by the fire, close the curtains and wait for Spring, but while you’re doing that you are missing out on a whole heap of outdoor winter fun. Grab a coat and call up your nearest and dearest, it’s time to get out and enjoy the season.

Take a hike.

Gather your friends and suggest a winter walk to get you moving (and keep you warm). Pull on a few layers and a pair of decent boots and head to the great outdoors. Take in the invigorating, crisp air and marvel at the frosty landscapes that resemble an enchanted land. Winter can be a magical season, view it as an opportunity to gain a new perspective on the world around you. Take a camera and get snap happy, stop off to enjoy a warming hot chocolate (remember to fill your thermos flask before you head off). We promise you will feel return feeling exhilarated, go and enjoy the wintery delights on offer.

Stoke the Fire.

When you return from your winter hike you might want to huddle round the fire and enjoy a warm drink. No need to head indoors! Stoke up an outdoor fire-pit or chimenea and invite your guests to pull up a chair.

The high-quality Tolix Chair from VOGA is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use and has a raw industrial style. The Tolix chair is also waterproof, strong and stackable, we love a product that’s good looking and functional!

Get Grilling.

A winter walk, a warming drink, now it’s time to treat your guests to an appetizing feast. BBQ’s may be associated with summer sun and long days at the beach, but you can just as easily enjoy a winter BBQ. Do all the preparation before-hand (chopping etc) in the warmth of your kitchen and light the BBQ as soon as you return from your hike. Then it’s just a case of grilling to perfection while your guests enjoy a chat and hot toddy by the chimenea.

Provide a few side tables so guests have a convenient space to rest their drink while they help themselves to a plate of your yummy food. The Eames Wire Base Table from VOGA is a great option -  lightweight, simple and practical, perfect for your outdoor gathering.
