This M&S jungle picnicware range is about to liven up your next al fresco meal

Come rain or shine, us Brits are determined to eat and drink outside as much as we can between the months of May and September – it’s just the rules. So even if the weather is looking less than desirable for a BBQ or picnic (or blanquet), you can still bring some joy and fun to the event with some brightly coloured picnicware.

And M&S has got just the thing – a new range of jungle-themed picnicware crafted from durable (and dishwasher-safe) bamboo and melamine that features adorable animals and jungle-themed motifs in bright and bold colours that will liven up even the dampest of al fresco lunches.

Perfect for a summer tablescape, everything from parrots, toucans and other exotic birds to tigers, elephants and peacocks sit among leafy and fruity motifs on the affordable outdoor dining ware, which includes dinner plates, side plates, bowls, (plastic) glasses and pitchers.

Even better is that right now, Marks & Spencer has 20 per cent off all picnicware, making it the perfect time to pick up a few bits from the range before it’s all gone. Despite being classed as picnicware, there’s no reason why these stunning pieces can’t be used all year round in the kitchen and dining room for a bright touch to all mealtimes.

The reviews say it all: ‘I have the cereal bowls and the big plates and after weeks of trying I managed to get these. There’s a reason why they’re always out of stock; they’re just beautiful. Just as vibrant as they appear online and unlike the plates and bowls, they all have different designs. I just love them!’ wrote one happy shopper.

Another wrote about the pitcher: ‘Love this. Large enough to make Pimms for 4. Good quality and the lid can be rotated to prevent ice pouring out if required. Bought with tall jungle picnic tumblers. Gorgeous on a sunny day in the garden. (Or a miserable day, indoors!) Would recommend.’
