18 Nov, 2021
Time to relax
Some of life’s best moments happen when you’re sharing food and having fun around the dining table. After the year that has been, we’re looking forward to catching up with loved ones and enjoying relaxed dining together. Discover our styling tips to prepare your spaces for summer entertaining as the weather begins to warm up.
Barbeques are perfect for taking advantage of an unexpected sunny afternoon. Gather your friends and neighbours in your garden to share food, drinks and laughter, basking in the last heat of the setting sun. Prepare your outdoor spaces ready for a summer of impromptu entertaining. Set up your deck, garden or poolside with tropical inspired and beachy stripe designs in comfy bean bags, stylish cushions and chair pads for your dining chairs. Made from UV and mould resistant fabrics to be enjoyed all summer long.
We love Christmas and have fun decorating our home, kitchen and table to celebrate the festive season. Whether you’re hosting Christmas Day, preparing for friends and family to pop round, or simply feeling festive, discover our Christmas kitchen and table linens for your home and gifting.
If you’re hosting Christmas Day, why not coordinate your dining table and kitchen linens? With much of the day spent in the kitchen, treat yourself to festive kitchen linens to match your Christmas table. Our Berry Christmas Kitchen and Table linens in leafy greens and red berries are perfect for prepping your feast and dining in style. Or if you prefer keeping it simple with a bottle of bubbles and a cheese platter, discover our Cheers Kitchen collection for easy festive style to accompany your Christmas entertaining.
Light a candle and create a welcoming first impression for your guests with beautiful fragrance. Our collection of Christmas fragrant candles smell perfectly festive.
Elevate your picnic style
After the past few months, many of us now find ourselves as picnic experts. Prepare for more summer outdoor fun and elevate your picnic accessories with beautiful essentials in tropical leafy designs and beachy stripes. Easy to carry and use, create an inviting picnic spot with our Crusoe blanket, basket and cushions for your friends and family to enjoy. Or if you feel like a bit of ‘me time’, pack a simple picnic and take yourself on a summery date. Our favourite go to picnic ingredients are always a loaf of fresh sourdough, a wheel of cheese, fresh strawberries, and a bottle of rosè if the mood calls for it. Bring fabric napkins to make your picnic feast all the more elegant and pick a bunch of flowers to pack into your basket for a pretty touch. And if needed, a tablecloth makes for an easy makeshift picnic blanket if more guests should join you.
Summer Wardrobe Style
To feel completely relaxed and really enjoy spending time with family and friends, comfort is key. Curate a wardrobe of lightweight, breezy pure linen daywear this summer to take you from the beach, to the kitchen, and to the dining table with ease.
Our style tips:
Ease the pressure of hosting, and wear a shirt or dress in darker tones to hide any signs of your hard work in the kitchen. Our Sundance Moss Linen Shirt is a relaxed fit for elegant summer dressing.
However if you’re keeping it simple with a bottle of wine and a platter of nibbles, a classic white shirt or long summery dress is always beautiful. Layer a festive apron over top to dress the part of hostess.
