    5 STYLING TIPS FOR SPRING DINING

    Spring has sprung and we’re feeling inspired to open up our spaces and entertain with loved ones as the warmer weather arrives. To get you prepared for your next Springsoirée we’ve shared our styling tips so that you can dine in luxury and create an evening to remember. 

    CONNECT WITH NATURE

    Invite the outdoors inside by opening up the windows and doors then styling plants and native flowers to evoke a connection with nature at the dining table. Amplify the look by styling natural elements into the setting with timber tableware and placemats weaved with natural materials.

    CHOOSE YOUR COLOURS

    Design a table setting which flows elegantly by selecting three colours you would like to be part of your colour palette and then style them in through your tableware, napkins, florals or decorative pieces. For a look inspired by nature and luxury you may like to select green, brass and light grey as your colour palette, similar to the styled display above.

    THINK ABOUT THE SENSES

    To ensure your beautiful dinner party appeals to more than just the eyes and taste buds, think about decorating with each of the senses in mind. Capture the moment with a beautiful scent for the evening, by styling candles or flowers along the table. Then introduce touch by layering beautiful textures into your table setting, through napkins, placemats and quality tableware. Next set the mood with a relaxed playlist of your favourite songs for the evening to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere.


    INTRODUCE A PERSONAL TOUCH

    Add something unique into the styling of your table to give it a personal touch. Think about introducing crystals, your favourite flowers or maybe even a lavish cheese platter, if that’s something your friends know you for.

    ADD A LITTLE SOMETHING TO REMEMBER

    Make thisSpringsoirée one to remember by adding a little something special for your guests. You could create personalised name tags for where they are seated or gift everyone with your signature dessert for them to take home and enjoy.
