How To

Winter Entertaining

Entertaining friends and family in Winter is the perfect excuse to warm up the house and have fun with decorating your dinner table.

I like to use simple, crisp white linens and crockery to create a clean base for any table setting.  Seasonal natural accents such as timber, acorns, twigs, foliage and flowers will bring the table to life and are an opportunity to create your own unique setting.  Candles, as always, are a must for night-time and look great spaced down the table.

On a beautiful winters day why not dare to dine outside?  In Australia, we are lucky to have this option. Luxurious winter furs and thick blankets thrown across the back of guest seats will be appreciated and help to keep everyone cozy.  With a fire or outdoor heating nearby, fresh air and (hopefully) some sunshine, we might just all forget we’re in the middle of winter!
