HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, November 9, 2010 3 Tasty touches With the popularity of cooking shows, more Australians are ditching the takeaway and opting instead to cook up a storm. But it's important not to forget the little touches when entertaining. TIP 1: A beautiful tablecloth set with colourful fabric napkins can work wonders, helping to add warmth and a sense of occasion to the table TIP 2: Creative centrepieces look fantastic, but make sure they are no higher than eye level or your guests won't be able to see each other. For any particular occasion, get the appropriate prints - and don't forget to colour co-ordinate your setting. TIP 3: Lunch is often a more casual occasion than dinner. To make your table setting less formal while keeping it stylish and attractive, use a lighter colour theme when choosing tablecloths and napkins and arrange beautiful vases on the table with freshly cut flowers. TIP 4: For the extra enthusiastic, follow the lead of My Kitchen Rules and give each guest a menu outlining what you will be serving. Fold your napkins - try going online to see how many different ways you can do this. This works well for both lunch and dinner parties.

Paver savers » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING After you've gone to the hard work and expense of laying new pavers, regular maintenance will keep these outdoor areas looking great. The effects of exposure to the elements, stains from falling leaves, food and metal, as well as cracking over time can all be minimised if pavers are regularly cleaned and maintained. Boral Clay and Concrete marketing manager Priscila Manio says it makes sense to ask about the recommended cleaning and maintenance for each product before deciding which pavers to buy. It's also a good idea to buy extras in case of chipping or cracking later on. Caring for pavers is easy if you follow a regular maintenance regime with just a bit of extra work in autumn and winter to remove seasonal debris such as dead leaves and berries. Some helpful tips include: Sweep regularly with a stiff bristled broom; Pull up weeds and grass between the pavers. Don't wait for seed heads form; Seal pavers after installation with a penetrating sealer; Reseal as required, taking special care in heavy-wear areas and salt- water locations; If doing building work, cover paved areas to protect against damage; At all times protect pavers against possible staining from mortar, oxides, cement and rust; Make sure metal outdoor furniture and barbecue bases are properly sealed; Do not use acid or high-pressure cleaning equipment to clean pavers; Always try to clean a stain before it hardens or dries up.
