Easy does it

Effortless, impromptu entertaining shifts the focus from what’s on your table to who surrounds it.

Take advantage of the weather, or enjoy a fancy-free afternoon that ends in your backyard by making the most of what you’ve got.

Bring a beautifully potted plant to the centre of the table instead of a fresh flower arrangement, and enjoy the unique (and convenient) touch of local food and drink.

Raise a glass to bright, fresh colours like reds and oranges that mirror the new Autumn light and the energy of concluding summer evenings spent with friends.
