Now the days are getting ever shorter, we’re celebrating the new season indoors. And we’re doing it in style, by inviting friends and family to a French floral apéro.
The urban chic French apéro
But what is apéro? It’s the French habit of gathering together with friends or family in the time before dinner. A moment to relax with a drink and snacks. You shake off a busy (working) day and catch up, enjoy the chatter, a groovy tune and the clatter of ice cubes. That sounds like our pre-supper drinks, doesn’t it? That’s right, but in chic outfit. Imagine you’re in Paris: you put on an nice dress, your most stylish heels and touch up your lipstick. When the guests arrive you serve dazzling, refined snacks and drinks with a botanical twist to lend the finishing touch.

In our autumn dossier we provide you with the recipes for those fabulous drinks, and show you how to transform your coffee table into the perfect centrepiece for your apéro. We present DIY craft projects for botanical coasters and ice sticks with green ingredients and a touch of glamour, and show you how you can turn your bar cart into an unmissable showstopper, in which plants naturally play a major role. All you have to do is draw up the guest list (and do the shopping).
