Nice ice, baby

George Home Lolly Digital Cushion £7 George at Asda Stockist 0800 952 3003

Mmmn ice cream! Now, not only can you stuff your face with it, but you can decorate your home with it too! I’m more than a little bit in love with this tasty cushion from George Home (George.com) – and at just £7, it doesn’t cost much, ahem, lolly either!

And it seems ice cream and ice lollies are a bit of a mini trend right now. I’m also rather fond of this slightly more expensive Margate cushion, £38.50 by Home Slice at Notonthehighstreet.com

…and these fun accessories too. From left to right:  Cornet ice cream bean bag by Woouf £147 at Cuckooland.com; Newgate Ice Cream Cone Wall Clock £35 Red Candy; and Ice Cream Door Stop £8.99 Gettingpersonal.co.uk


…Finally, if you’re having a summer party, how cute would these honeycomb ice cream decorations (£4.99 for three, from Candleandcake.co.uk) look hung in groups around your garden?
