    STYLING A MEMORABLE MOTHER'S DAY TABLE WITH ELEVEN EVENTS

    STYLING A MEMORABLE MOTHER'S DAY TABLE WITH ELEVEN EVENTS 

    We chat with Jess & Amy from Eleven Events to discover their tips for curating a timeless and beautiful table setting to celebrate this Mother’s Day. 

    WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIALS FOR STYLING A MEMORABLE MOTHER’S DAY TABLE SETTING?

    For us, Mothers day is all about the ritual of coming together. Surrounding ourselves with those we love, sharing good food and conversations. Of course this for us usually means an abundance of flowers, as well as using lots of layering for our table settings. At the moment we are mixing raw natural stones with our new collection in collaboration with Porch Ceramics. 

    WHAT ARE SOME WAYS THAT YOU CAN WEAVE IN PERSONALISED ELEMENTS?

    We like to personalise the table with beautiful handwritten menus for each guest on our seeded plantable paper. As well as mixing and matching glassware and crockery with vintage pieces we have collected over the years.

    WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS FOR BRINGING TOGETHER A SUSTAINABLE DINING EXPERIENCE?

    We always try to shop from our local farmers markets and support local businesses, using only high quality or organic produce. We also source a lot of our styling pieces from second hand and vintage shops and sellers, we love the idea of giving something a new lease on life. Simplicity is best, less is more and we steer clear from balloons or anything that cannot be reused or repurposed. 

    ARE THERE ANY STYLING TIPS AND TRICKS THAT INSTANTLY ELEVATE A TABLE SETTING?

    Any personal touches you can add will instantly create a warm and intimate setting. Your table setting will also depend on the space you are hosting in, aligning to this will help you curate a memorable and impactful table. We are also fortunate enough to be able to forage herbs and flowers from our friends and family’s garden, which in itself is a beautiful ritual and addition to elevate any table.
