Entertaining outdoors this Heritage Day – here’s how
And since spring has officially sprung, and the weather’s heating up somewhat, some time outdoors with family could be the perfect tonic to kick-start the new season. In this snippet, Alon Sachs, co-owner of Mobelli Furniture + Living shares a few tips on what every patio and courtyard needs this Heritage Day.
Bring on the braai
It’s Heritage Day, but also National Braai Day, so grab some boerewors and a few kebabs and get the party started the proudly South African way.
Seating is an essential part of entertaining, make sure your furniture’s comfy, and that there’s enough seating for the whole family and a few impromptu guests too. Don’t forget to choose options that can easily be cleaned to make your life easier once everyone’s left.
Barefoot at the bar
Drinks trolleys make a great bar alternative, especially when there’s a large crowd, you can easily push the trolley, with its XYZ to wherever it needs to be, with no fuss at all.
Shield from the sun
After a long cold winter, the sun is finally making an appearance this spring. But remember your sunblock and steer clear of those UV rays. The only way to do that is with an umbrella, and the best kind of umbrella is a portable one, to move around and go where you need it to.
“Entertaining has never been this fun, tick these boxes to ensure maximum comfort and ease and to make sure guests have the best Heritage Day on your patio or in your courtyard,” Sachs says.
