Three Ways To Set Your Table

We are all too familiar with the gut wrenching anxiety that can come with the pressure of hosting a dinner party. Whether it's a feast that brings together our nearest and dearest, or an intimate evening in with our better half, ambience adds so much to the sense of occasion there's no surprise that we want to get it perfect. Floral powerhouse Floom talk us through three centrepieces that showcase a trio of arrangements providing a striking focal point for your table, sure to match a diversity of homes.

Spring Harlequin



Brazilian-born, London-based florist Zita Elze has reinterpreted her distinctive Harlequin bouquet. It’s crafted from colourful tulips, peonies, parrot tulips, and ginster – that’s sure to bring a fresh seasonal scent into your home – and punctuated with miniature eggs and vibrant feathers that will lend a striking celebratory note to your spring table. Let the tulips do the talking, style your table simply with white china, gold-tone cutlery, and accent with yellow-tinted glass.


Gloriously green


If you’re not big on colour, look to the The Fresh Flower Co’s offering as an alternative choice. It’s comprised of delicate ornithogalum, hornbeam, catkins, hypericum berries, nostalgic rosemary and striking craspedia and dried scabiosa heads. Style yours with a crisp white tablecloth and smooth ceramics for a minimalist composition, or try out a slightly wrinkled linen paired with vintage bottle-green glasses for a timeless textural finish.


Flamboyant Fabergé


Design By Nature’s Fabergé table arrangement celebrates the colour and decadence of springtime via a vibrant combination of stems. “I’ve chosen a selection of winter and spring flowers. I think this is best represented by the purple hellebores, whereby they slowly darken and dry as we move closer to summer,” explains London-based florist Emily of her masterpiece. The Fabergé also comes as a bouquet version that’s available for delivery nationwide.

Top tips for beating a summer hangover

While the British summertime has graced us with plenty of opportunity to talk about our favourite subject recently (i.e. the weather, i.e. “Isn’t it supposed to be summer? It’s been raining for two WHOLE weeks now!”), there has also been a whole lot of talk about hangovers. In particular, those ensuing a Pimms-fuelled staff summer party.

You Look Radishing

With the deadline for book number two (!) fast approaching, I’m taking advantage of some of the delights available to us in the British springtime and will be flexing my chef skills in the kitchen this weekend. There are so many wonderful, locally grown vegetables available to us at the moment.
