the possibilities are endless

MIX & MATCH Inject a sense of fun into your next get-together with these simple tips: • A pastel tablecloth is an inexpensive way to set the mood and tie back to key pieces within the same colour palette.• Get creative with napery – a simple knot or twist adds playfulness and personality. The texture of White Basics Diamonds looks great mixed with our Tint collection. SUBTLE SOPHISTICATION For those moments that deserve a little more finesse and elegant flare: • Less is more – keep the colour palette simple to allow other accent pieces, including the meal, a canvas to shine upon.• Little touches like ribbon around cutlery or napery under first course plates show attention to detail and are a simple way to bring a sophisticated feel to your table.

it’s show time!

exquisite and supremely serene, orchids are like the standout exhibit in an art gallery – you dare not touch, but must just stand back and gaze in awe. But there’s a preciousness that also says they’re ‘too complex, too different, too difficult’ for you to grow. FOR YOU TO KNOW Complex and different, yes. But not difficult, having thrived in the wild for millions of years. Orchids are the second largest family of flowers (more than 20,000 species, more than 100,000 varieties and hybrids galore) and they’re not exclusively tropical, growing everywhere except Antarctica – the world’s driest continent. And this is the key to orchid success: moisture. WHAT THEY NEED What makes orchids different is that most are epiphytes, in that they don’t grow in soil. They started growing on leaves and moss…

WHAT TO CHOOSE With elegant and long-living flowers, the moth orchid (Phalaenopsis spp) is the perfect indoor plant with an imperfect name – ‘butterfly’ orchid seems more appropriate! In the tropics most orchids flower in the wild all year round. In Australia, where they are best kept indoors, flowering depends on where you are. Most stop blooming in spring or autumn. CONDITIONS Give your moth warmth, moisture and a shady place with morning sunlight, or bright, indirect light. CARING FOR IT Winter heating keeps it warm, but this may dry out the growing medium so check its moisture regularly. Water only the medium, not the leaves. Instead lightly spray about – not on – leaves. Don’t let water pool in the centre as this causes rot. In summer, keep it moist and away from fans…
