Setting the Table for Spring

Setting the Table for Spring

Mastering the art of tablescaping really lies in the ability to find joy in laying the table, whether that be for a casual family brunch, an afternoon tea with friends, an intimate dinner with a loved one or a more extravagant affair. The goal is to create a table that expresses style and ambience - a look that is capable of turning any occasion into a memorable one whilst still enjoying the process.

The key is to have fun with it - don’t overcomplicate things, never save those nice plates or that sentimental set of glassware for a ‘special occasion’ (because life is too short!), and always finish the table with a personal touch. Whether it be a vase of flowers and foliage picked from your garden, or perhaps some decorative seasonal veggies from your garden patch, handwritten place cards, or a cluster of lit candles - the finishing touch is sure to make the scheme sing. 

As we set the stage, or table, for spring, we’re so pleased to welcome our new collection of table linens, available in three playful designs that echo SS24’s ‘The Land Of Nod’ bed linen collection. Here’s how we’re styling them for all of spring’s soirées.… 

Spring Shades 

Elderberry Gingham Linen Tablecloth, Placemats Set of 4, Table Runner and Napkins Set of 4

Embracing the ‘whimsycore’ trend that is building momentum in interiors right now, our new Gingham table linen in Elderberry is incredibly nostalgic and just the right amount of sweet. The perfect backdrop to those slow Sunday morning moments, chatting with loved ones over coffee and croissants, this linen looks its very best when stripped back for a laid-back look.

Lay it with mismatched ceramics in spring shades for that relaxed aesthetic reminiscent of your Grandma's cottage, a few bud vases of homegrown single-stem flowers, and, of course, plenty of tea and toast. To take your gingham linen from morning to night, pair it with its coordinating napkins, a more abundant vase of foliage and berries, and some tealight candles guaranteed to bring some twinkly charm. 

Rustic & Romantic  

Plum Wine Amberley Stripe Linen Tablecloth, Placemats Set of 4, Table Runner and Napkins Set of 4

Moody and opulent, the Amberley Stripe draws inspiration from the hidden darkness of fairy tales, adding a good dose of drama and romanticism to any table it lays. Available in a deep Plum Wine, this linen looks its most atmospheric and inviting when laid with ceramics in earthy tones, a large vase of loose, leafy foliage and enjoyed amongst cheese, grapes and a bottle of red.

For added visual warmth and romance, scatter the table with some candles of varying heights and colours - opt for rustic forest green or off-white tones to perfectly tie the scheme together. 

Serene In Green  

Thyme Somerley Stripe Linen Tablecloth, Placemats Set of 4, Table Runner and Napkins Set of 4

This ‘less is more’ approach to tablescaping uses the woodland-inspired Somerley Stripe in Thyme, layered with coordinating napkins and styled with fresh greens and blues that sing ‘spring’. To soften and add textural interest to this look, we’ve incorporated organic elements and woven materials, which give an almost Mediterranean feel to this calming, pared back palette.

As we approach warmer weather and sunnier skies, we can imagine this tablescape being enjoyed ‘alfresco’ in a country garden or city patio, chatting with friends over seasonal salads, sourdough bread and a glass of crisp white wine.

Incredibly versatile, the Somerley Stripe looks just as stylish for a more elevated, chic affair. Pull out the bold blue of the patterned dobby weave and use this shade elsewhere on your tablescape for a more evening look and feel. Complete the table with handwritten place cards or menus for a personal touch that will have your dinner guests swooning for weeks to come.
