Spring has arrived and with Easter so nearly upon us we wanted to share some simple table setting inspiration.  Taking the time to dress the table beautifully always makes a meal or gathering feel extra special and cultivates a sense of joy.  We believe in simple ideas, thoughtfully executed and usually find that less is more.

When laying a table we are always inspired by nature and the seasons.  There is so much beauty to be found around us and incorporating seasonal elements and foraged finds can elevate any table.  Branches and flowers impart both organic texture and a naturally sculptural shape to a table scape.  Potted bulbs are a simple centre piece which add spring-like freshness and small bud vases can be added along the table with a single bloom or grouped together for impact.

We like a minimal colour palette and find that soft pastels and neutral tones represent spring’s subtle hues.  The addition of linens and a mix of old, new and handmade glassware, ceramics and cutlery adds interest and warmth.  Candles in simple vessels create a beautiful and welcoming table and add ambience.  Our favourites are simple handmade candle holders and tea lights.  The end result should look informal but elegant, the perfect setting for people to gather in comfort for simple enjoyment and indulge in a slow meal.  




Our table shown here has a blend of old and new pieces collected over time including the following items from our online store: stoneware candle holders, ivory dinner candles, classic French table glasses and dove grey linens.
