April brings with it fresh flowers, a warmer climate and longer days; it’s the perfect time of year to gather with friends and family, especially with the upcoming Easter Bank Holiday weekend! Why not invite some guests over to enjoy a special Easter feast? We’ve got some tips and tricks for setting the table and bringing spring inside.
Cutlery needn’t be boring, embrace classic styles with a contemporary edge; our new ranges are sure to be the new stars at your dinner table.
Top Tip: Remember to place the fork to the left of the plate & the knife and spoon to the right. Knife blades always face the plate and the napkin goes to the left of the fork.
Uplift with basics
Getting the basics of a spring table setting right will be what sets the mood for the whole dinner. Our pink rope placemats will make cute and stylish foundations for a foodie gathering. Alternate between pink and white for a colourful spring setting.
Top Tip: Placemats also work well as the base of a centrepiece or to ground your condiments. Think of setting a table like placing furniture in a room, placemats are like the rug of the table!
It’s in the details
A special gathering requires a special setup. Adding candles to your dinner table will set the mood and create an ambiance of calm and sophistication. With it being spring, bright shades of pink and yellow make for the perfect colour scheme at the dining table. Our Light Rose Pink Round Lantern will look great as your centrepiece with a candle burning inside.
Alternatively, pop some fresh daffodils or tulips in our Dark Rose Pink Glass Lantern which is a great substitute for a vase.
Top tip: Make your guests feel extra special by placing a single flower on top of their plate and attach a name tag. A simple yet effective way of setting the table and bringing a touch of the outside in.
