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 $26.00.
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 $73.00.
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 $52.00.
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 $23.00.
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 $59.00.
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!

Simple Camping Recipes
Cooking whilst camping can be challenging, so it's best to have a few recipes that you can count on being easy and trustworthy. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert and Drinks.
Reasons to enjoy the outdoors this Autumn
There are so many reasons to enjoy the outdoors this Autumn, from the golden glow of your surroundings to the starry nights and frosty mornings. Here’s just some of our favourite reasons:
The days get shorter a lot more quickly during the Autumn and the sun starts to hover a lot more lower in the sky. It’s during this season that evenings become a lot more crisp which helps to create some spectacular sunsets. A roadtrip in a campervan is made all the more exciting when travelling to the sight of a glowing sunset.
Autumn is a hive of wildlife activity, from squirrels running freely to birds migrating in impressive numbers. If you’re a keen lover of wildlife activity then you really can’t beat camping during the Autumn. If you really want to get in amongst the wildlife then it might be worth preparing your wellie boots, your binoculars and setting a route that’s off the beaten track.
… But fewer insect bites!
Eurgh, we all hate that moment when we know we’ve been bitten by an insect. Fortunately, as the weather gets colder, you can expect to see less of the annoying flying insects.
Obviously, as a result of the COVID pandemic, we’re living in times where it’s best to avoid crowds of people you haven’t met before. So camping during the Autumn is an ideal time to avoid those bustling summer crowds and instead enjoy the tranquillity of a quieter campsite. It’s during the Autumn months that you’ll be more likely to hear the birds chirping, the leaves rustling or maybe just beautiful sound of silence.
Enjoy the midday warmth in beautiful surroundings
During Autumn, you can still enjoy those warmer days but without the unbearably hot and uncomfortable nights that you sometimes get during Summer. While the Autumn nights can become chilly, it does give you the perfect excuse to get the campfire going and to search the cupboards for those marshmallows you’ve been saving.
Opportunity to use pretty lighting on your set up
The darker evenings means more opportunity to get settled in for the evening with a lovely lighting set up. For many, this is also an opportunity to get out the Christmas fairy lights and check that they’re all still working before they go on the Christmas tree later in the year… exciting times!
Use AR to visualise products in your gardenOLPRO has implemented a new augmented reality service that enables you to see how tents, campervan and caravan awnings would fit in your own garden.
The feature, provided by size.link allows users to see OLPRO’s products through their phone in real size. This is particularly useful for people who are looking to use their products in the garden while socially distancing, but are unsure as to whether the product would fit in the space available.
When visiting the ‘Dimensions & Details’ section of the OLPRO products, users will be able to complete a simple 3 stage process that will allow them to visualise their product through augmented reality. Users simply need to click the button ‘see the size now’, open the weblink or QR code that appears and then select ‘view in your space’.
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: “The idea of camping out in the garden has been hugely popular throughout this lockdown period and has been a clear sign that 2020 will be the year of the staycation.”
“As countries from across Europe begin to ease their lockdown restrictions, we’re beginning to see a huge increase in demand for our products. However, we are still encouraging our customers to be extra careful in planning their travels away and remain safe at all times.”
“Our new augmented reality service will be perfect for those who are taking part in the Stay Home National Camping and Caravanning Week, and for those who will prefer to keep a social distance and camp in the garden.”
