Plaisir du Jardin: Let’s Plan A Fantastic Winter

We can all feel the chill in the air early morning and evening. We know Winter is on its way. Even if the cold is not your favourite, there are things you can do to make it a fantastic season. Who doesn’t love soft snuggly blankets, steaming hot chocolate and warm winter slippers. Don’t hibernate during the day, let’s enjoy our beautiful, mild Winter days with outdoor activities that bring the family together. Explore some innovative ideas to have the best season yet with PLAISIR DU JARDIN.

Winter adventures just got a whole lot more fun!

Brighten up your space with elegant homeware…


All around us, the beautiful colours of summer are starting to turn brown. Our gardens may look a little colourless compared to summer, but we have some excellent tricks to bring back some colour. This winter need not be boring as we add patches of colour to our outdoors and brightness to our family gatherings. Fermob offers a delightful range of Serge Ferrari® Batyline Placemats. Enough to brighten even the dullest day and so easy to clean! Just a quick wipe and they’re as good as new. Available in Fermob’s fashion colours at Plasir du Jardin Bryanston.

Pair these beautiful Placemats with a range of Trivets/Pot holders. Three designs available: Mostera, Banana and Cactus, to brighten your table. Mix and match designs and colours to bring a light-hearted feel to your dining occasion. 


The latest design addition to Fermob’s Trivet Collections is the beautiful Monstera design. Its stylised leaf design places it firmly within the current trend for all things green, meaning it is sure to please nature-lovers everywhere. Putting creativity front and centre, Fermob has made this piece using the high-precision laser cutting technique, hard-wearing powder coating finish and non-glide pads for hassle-free socialising around the dinner table. Combining the Monstera trivet with your favourite table – square, round, rectangular, low, bar or occasional – is truly effortless: simply pop it on the surface for a discreet tropical touch. Achingly chic! 


To ensure we brighten our brown days ahead, we need to introduce light and colour… not only on our tables but all around the garden. What better way to guide guests through your garden than lighting their way with dots of softness in the dark indicating the chosen path. 

What we need is a lamp that combines mobility with multiple lamp settings to create just the mood you want. Soft ambient lighting lining your walkways and hanging in trees. Or brighten it up so your guests can eat and socialise. 1 lamp, with multiple solutions. 

Luckily, we have just the right lamp for you. 

We have brightened up the brown, lightened the mood, and brought some joy to our tables and gardens. We can now bring out the cosy blankets and joyful scatter cushions to add even more layers of joy to our setting. And because we love all things green and natural these days our final contribution is the centrepiece of our tables. The Flowers.

Thankfully we live in a country that abounds with plenty winter flowering beauties. In these colder months we can look forward to using Gladiolus, Snapdragons, Streletzia, gorgeous Camellia, Azalias and more. Or if you like the more organic, rustic look, try fynbos, proteas and wild tuffeted grasses and succulents. One as beautiful as the other, and capable to creating the mood, setting the tone, and stealing the show.

So let’s all dig deep in these colder months ahead and find our inner florest, inner designer and inner chef. We wish you all warmth and a good cup of hot chocolate in the coming months.
