Outdoor Entertaining Done Right

Entertaining family and friends outdoors is synonymous with South African summers. Why not treat your loved ones to an extraordinary event every time you entertainment with these simple to do ideas.

Outside Lounging

Entertaining guests doesn’t always mean you have to treat them to a sit-down, six-course meal. Organise a variety of seating for guests, from outdoor sofas, floor cushions and comfy pouffes.  It’s the perfect spot for guests to comfortably linger. Layer some outdoor rugs and beach blankets on the floor for extra comfort, introduce a side table or two for drinks and, for the perfect finishing touch, string up some warm white fairy lights, spark up some candles and relax.

Alfresco Dining

While entertaining is ultimately about your guests, it doesn’t mean you can skimp on the decorating details.  Spend time preparing and decorating, and enjoy the experience! Instead of bright, bold colours and prints, stick to fabrics in a neutral colour palette, for a chic and sophisticated setting.  Incorporate all the accoutrements you’d have for your indoor soiree, from cotton tablecloths, chic stoneware and gold cutlery.
