The beautiful warmer months of spring are finally on their way! With the warmer temperature comes the opportunity for outdoor entertaining, with barbeques and alfresco cooking taking centre stage.
Below are some ideas for outdoor entertaining ideas, recipes and general tips for dining alfresco!
Dress your outdoor serving table for a lovely alfresco meal
There are little flourishes that you can add to your outdoor serving table that make the experience even more enjoyable. Add fresh spring and summer flowers in oversized vases and light a few candles for when the evening light starts to wane.
