The November 2021 issue of SALIFE is all about the art of entertaining guests: how to set the table, what to cook, what to drink and what to wear. You won't survive the fast-approaching festive season without it.
SALIFE The Entertaining Issue is out now!
Party season is almost upon us and this year we don’t need an excuse to push the boat out.
Laying a beautiful dining table not only shows the appropriate respect for the food we’re about to serve, but also for your guests. Whether your style is informal al fresco or subtle and chic, we have some table-decorating ideas you will love.
But what to wear? If you harbour a secret desire to be the best-dressed guest at the soiree, we’ve got you covered. The SALIFE fashion team had a sneak preview of Adelaide’s brand-new Sofitel to shoot this month’s fashion pages.
Meanwhile, Rosa Matto has some inventive finger food ideas to tantalise even the most jaded of tastebuds (Who knew Aperol Spritz could be served in canapé form?) while Tony Love takes care of perhaps the most important aspect of any celebration: the booze.
Our lead story in this issue harks back to a time when the Adelaide social set partied their absolute hardest at the drop of a hat. The truth is that if you can remember some of these parties, you probably weren’t there. Thank goodness we have the photographic evidence to prove they happened.
Our In the Kitchen feature this month is at the home of a woman who knows the true meaning of the word hospitality: Emma McCaskill. But hosting guests should be fun and casual, she says.
