Outdoor feast inspiration for festive entertaining
Thinking of taking your festive celebrations outdoors this year?
1 December, 2017
When the weather is at it’s finest, we love to entertain outdoors. Whether it’s to host a Christmas luncheon, a relaxed brunch or an evening outdoor feast with friends and family. Entertaining outdoors is easy. It’s messy, laid-back and shoes are optional. Styling becomes all about the food, natural materials and garden foliage.
Entertaining outdoors is about keeping it simple so you can spend less time fussing and more time in the sunshine, enjoying the conversation and laughs.
Outdoor feast inspiration
So, take your festive celebrations outside and draw some inspiration for your outdoor feast from these images…
Wake up to a simple spread of nourishing food like homemade bircher muesli with fresh fruit and yogurt while enjoying the morning sunshine.
Warm croissants and fluffy pancakes anyone?
Take your festive celebrations down the beach and enjoy the simple things in life. If you’re loving the look of this spread, you can find the recipes on About That Food.
Who says you can’t have a celebratory Christmas outdoor feast beside a campfire?
The best thing about entertaining outdoors is that you can keep it simple. No need for too many decorations. Let the fresh produce be the star of the show.
Remove the pressure of serving and allow your guests to help themselves by setting up a makeshift buffet.
Use one large board or several generously sized platters to make an indulgent harvest spread of fresh olives, cured meats, fruit, nuts and delicious cheeses.
Make a batch of mock-tails (or cocktails!) to add colour and vibrancy to our outdoor feast.
Remember to take time out during the busy festive season to enjoy a little downtime over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Sometimes the simplest of spreads are just what you need when you’re entertained out!
