Before I style any table, the first thing I actually think about is the food. What occasion is it? and what food will be served? When I hosted the supper club with EatFirst last year, I needed the setting to be intimate and festive. There was plenty of flowers, and a mix of gold, silver and white accessories. My idea of a spring table doesn’t have a pale pastel in sight. I love the idea of mixing print and patterns and Designer pieces from Amara call for the layout to be indulgent and luxe.
The long Easter break is about taking time off, and spending quality time with the family. I envisioned my spring table to be full, and the tableware needed to accommodate a luxury sharing platter. It may be spring, but there are still smatterings from the colder months. I wanted everything to feel cosy, with a darker colour palette.
Who doesn’t love a cheese smorgasbord? The LSA beech paddle board with accompany serving set was the perfect piece to start. The Nude cheese dome slate worked as both a chic display, and to keep aside more garnishes to add to the feast. Definitely mix and match those plates, its makes for a more interesting table. The geometric edge of Addison dinner plate, complements the checkerboard of the enamel dessert plate. The A by Amara Monroe dinner plate doubled as a tray, offset with the gold cut-out table mat. The only floral element to the table were the flower ice cubes, displayed in the LSA glass ice bucket.
All that is left is to tuck in!
