Styled Settings · A Garden Gathering


Lucy Feagins
Tuesday 1st August 2017

‘Styled Settings’ is our new four part series of inspired entertaining ideas, created in partnership with Jansz Tasmania. Each short video introduces a range of super easy styling ideas, to elevate your next social gathering into something a little bit special!

Today, we share ‘A Garden Gathering’ – a relaxed outdoor affair, captured on a chilly yet impossibly bright and cheerful winter’s day (though, we recommend waiting until the temperatures lift a little before hosting your own version!).

This setting brings together some of our favourite ideas for outdoor entertaining – a low, makeshift table (super easy to re-create), rugs and cushions in place of formal seating, and an easy and affordable outdoor lighting solution, to take the party from day to night.

For this relaxed outdoor affair, we served Jansz Tasmania Vintage Cuvée. An elegant sparkling wine with hints of crème brûlée and candied citrus, Jansz Tasmania Vintage Cuvée is a great choice for a relaxed, afternoon setting.

Life’s too short not to drink good sparkling. Visit to view the collection and purchase online.
