OLPRO Products You Can Use In Your Garden
When it comes to this point in the year the weather just isn't as inviting to pack up bags and go on a camping holiday. However, we've put this blog post together to show you that you can still use your OLPRO products, even in the comfort of your own home.
The first thing we use all year round, home or away, is our Melamine Sets.
We especially love our Witley Melamine Set as we think it almost has the ability to look like a Fair Isle Christmas pattern.
We really enjoy doing a cooked breakfast and then heading out into the garden with our Melamine. If you close your eyes you could almost imagine yourself on your favourite campsite.
The Witley 8 Piece Melamine Set is just $25.00.
The second OLPRO product that we use all year round are our Pop Tents.
They're super speedy and really easy to put up and take down, so you can pick and choose when you want them up or not. They work so well as a kids play tent, or as a fun sleep over option. The size means they also fit into most gardens!
The Blue OLPRO Pop Tent is just $71.00.
We love the Dark Moon pattern in particular, as the colourway is so autumnal. The size options are also an added bonus as they're great if kids want to share or for a couple.
We love using these sleeping bags whilst camping in our pop tent, as they make it so cosy and fun.
The next three products that we use all year round are our: Windbreaks, Picnic Rugs and our Fold Out Tables.
One of our favourite windbreakers that we do is our Beach Compact 4 Pole.
We especially love this design as it makes us feel like we're at the beach, even if we're really hundreds of miles away. There are endless uses for our windbreakers during the colder months. For kids, they're great as a den making support, and for adults we love using them as a wind protector for when we're having late night campfires.
The Beach Compact 4 Pole windbreak is just $51.00.
Whilst we're out in our gardens, a Picnic Rug is definitely an essential. It keeps the damp away whilst sitting out and it adds a bit of cosiness to our pop tents, as a makeshift carpet.
We especially love it in this pink colour as it's so bright and fun.
The Matio Picnic Rug in the Strawberry Print is just $22.00.
The final product we are going to mention today is our Folding Map Table. Even though we are stopping here, we really believe that you can find a use for any OLPRO product in your garden or house, all year round.
The Map Table is great as it folds up, so it's perfect for storage when you're not using it. The table has extendable legs with two height settings. It's both lightweight and convenient.
We love using our map table for games nights out in the garden, and for eating our campfire treats on.
The World Map Folding Games Table in Black is just $58.00.
We hope that you've learnt something from this blog and that it's given you some home-spiration ideas for ways that you can use your OLPRO products even in the colder months!

How To: Fold the OLPRO Utility / Toilet / Shower Tent
We know that folding a utility pop up tent is not always the easiest thing to do, therefore we have put together this video and blog post to help you along the way.
Here's Gareth to explain things:
"OK so to fold the OLPRO pop up utility tent up, all you have to do is fold it in half length ways (from the base to the roof), and it's one trick and one trick only from here, you're not twisting it or anything like that, you're just trying to get the bottom part to the middle (over and under, like a wave). To make it easier, it's quite good to twist your right hand (on the right hand side of the tent) so it makes a U shape horizontally with your chest, as at this point the tent will start to twist itself. So as the base goes over and under, it will start to make one loop, two loops, three loops and then you're done."
We also have an unnarrated video below so you can see this in action.
We hope this helps you on your adventures!
