It’s Spring Time
Spring outdoor entertaining – Now that spring has officially sprung, there are so many things to look forward to that accompany the warmer weather and flowering blossoms on the trees. One of our favourites is outdoor entertaining!

Create an interesting table by layering items in coordinating colours. Don’t be afraid to layer plates and table linens. Don’t over do it though. Keekï’s rule of thumb would be no more than three layers of linens and three layers of plates.

Serving
Try serving big dishes of table-bound goodies ‘family style’, for a self-serve al-fresco day or evening filled with love.

Keep it cool
Throwing together a drink station with infused water options is a great way to add an easy dose of fancy to your day or evening – and keeps guests hydrated. Some of our top picks? Lemon herb, strawberry basil, and blackberry sage. Our ice buckets are always an entertaining essential, make sure yours stands out by placing it on a super-bright side table, to create a drink station that is bound to catch your guests’ eye.

Use a Tray
There are so many beautiful trays available at keekï, we just love using a tray as the base of a centrepiece, add a floral arrangement or group similar objects like vases, bottles or bowls together. By using a tray at the centre of the table, you are creating a focal point and it makes your flowers or grouping of items seem more substantial.

DIY
To personalise your table, add in something besides the food that you made yourself. Try making some napkin rings out of ribbon or hand write out some cute name cards for guests. This will personalise your table and make guests feel like they are in an inviting cosy home.
