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.
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.
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.
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.
