 1 of 4

A large, light synthetic duvet** – size shown here is super king

Blankets or sheets for the floor

Pillows/ sofa cushions/ sleeping bags

Clothes pegs to secure the duvet in place


Fairy lights

“Keep out” sign or similar






Extension cable

Stage One

Lay a blanket or sheet on the floor and position four chairs opposite each other; they should be close enough together for the duvet to drape over the chairs and over the seat cushions ideally.

Gather pillows and cushions to fill the den and provide comfy cushioning – ideally around the corners and along the back wall.

Weave string in-between the top of the chairs to form a support for the roof and attach fairy lights on to it with pegs. Use an extension cable for the lights if needed.

one season gold is a must have and the next season is being labelled as ‘old fashioned’. Silver jewellerypowers through the trends as a constant part of fashion, it is used constantly by the big designers and worn by many celebs. At Something Elegant, we chose to specialise in Sterling Silver Jewellerybecause of all the above reasons. But, not only is silver jewellery beautiful, it is also very affordable in these difficult times. This is what is so wonderful about silver jewellery when compared to gold Phone unlocking London
