Get Your Patio Ready

  • Dust off your patio furniture and arrange this snugly and companionly.
  • Decorate your buffet table attractively and set it in readiness with your drinks and for your tasty gas braai meal.
  • Arrange loungers in a quiet spot for those needing a post-lunch snooze.


Brighten Up Your Space

  • Add pops of colour and interest with bright floor rugs, plump cushions and plush, inviting throws on your comfy patio furniture. 
  • Accessorise with a stunning vase of cut or bought flowers and other striking ornaments.
  • Have soft warm blankets nearby as September can have spells of chilly winds so it’s best to be prepared. Don’t let a little chill or wind spoil your patio gas braai.


Add Greenery 

  • Water lightly and freshen up the plants in the mounted planters on the wall.
  • Adding a houseplant in a pretty pot, or two, will bring life and texture to your space.
  • Manoeuvre any colourful containers strategically for increased visible colour and texture.


Kids’ Stuff

To entice the kids away from their gadgets, display interesting books, board games and crafting items and encourage them out into the spring sunshine to play or to romp with the family and dog in the garden or in the pool. 


It’s all organised - your patio is spring braai ready!  Now relax with a delicious drink while the gas braai is cooking and its tempting aromas waft over you. 

Enjoy your appetising meal, have a great time with your family on the patio - that’s the perfect way for South Africans to spend a spring Sunday!

Gas braais are great! They’re quick – just push the button to ignite – and easy to clean. But keep your family and home safe and always remember to apply gas safety measures.
