ENTERTAINING
MADE EASY

Add some wow factor to your next get-together with our fuss-free party ideas, from the first drink to the final dish

Make ‘ready-made’ your own

Avoid party prep with our canapés and desserts to order. Add your own touch with edible flowers and herbs: purple basil looks great on savoury starters; cornflowers add colour to a cheesecake.

Add ambience

Set the scene for fun with family and friends. Light candles – citrus scents give a fresh, Mediterranean vibe – and dress plates with a few flowers from a bouquet, tied with string.

Be down with the kids

Delight little ones with their very own kids’ corner. Use brown paper as a tablecloth that they can draw on, and make healthy food fun with our fruit kebabs and jellies to order.
