The Art of Alfresco Entertaining

Nothing says summer like outdoor dining. As we approach warmer weather, it’s time to start dusting off the garden furniture and planning alfresco menus, which raises the question of table décor.

For effortless entertaining, faux florals have you covered: centerpieces and garnishes that can be brought out time after time. Low-maintenance and versatile, they can be adapted for everything from special occasions to casual dining, whilst blooms can be swapped out to suit different colour themes.

Show-stopping blooms and intricate foliage: a perfect summer setting. This simplistically styled arrangement highlights the beauty of peonies, naturally complemented by star-shaped Astrantia heads in a relaxed display of summer blooms. These faux flowers have all the charm and attraction of a living flower, without the fragility.

Faux rosemary stems are decorative and multi-purpose – perfect for use as garnishes, they can also be detached to form multiple sprigs. The possibilities are endless: place settings, napkin rings, wound around cutlery, or to hold flowers together as a posy.

Olive leaf is another classic botanical and works wonderfully both as a garnish to add a touch of colour to dishes. Easy to wipe clean, they’re also a great choice for a foliage-themed centrepiece or can be used to add depth and texture to a flower arrangement.
