Relaxed Family Entertaining Gallery

One of the best ways I can think of to spend a lazy weekend day is to invite a couple of families over and relax over good food and conversation while the children play. Entertaining shouldn’t be about stress and worrying over what to serve. Just chill out and enjoy your time together.

Have a look at our beautiful photo gallery of Relaxed Family Entertaining with ideas for great recipes and table styling. This was a beautiful collaboration between Anna, Sarah and Angela, recruiting friends and family to be our models. And what a day it was! Our only problem was keeping little fingers (and maybe a few big hands) off the nibblies that were there as props.
