Go for the top table

Dress to impress with these beautifully simple table settings ideas for your next dinner party.

Beautiful blooms

In this elegant dining room, a mix of different types of seating gives this lunch table a pleasingly relaxed feel. A selection of cushions in contrasting patterns adds extra interest to the already striking studded sofa. White walls and blinds make the most of the natural light streaming in through the large windows.

Nordic style

A pure-white table setting enriched with striking blue glassware and loose arrangements of spring flowers creates a crisp look with a strong Nordic influence.

Pure and simple

When set against the statement wallpaper and elegant teal curtains, opt for a minimal table setting. The beautiful linen napkins, table runner and individual bouquets of white blooms in Kilner jars will transport you to Provence.

Let’s go outside

Add an Autumnal touch to dinner parties with decorative feathers and foraged nuts. Get crafty and decorate blue and white plates with glitter sprayed twigs and homemade name cards.

Back to black

A black and white gingham tablecloth sprinkled with foliage will create a relaxed yet dramatic table setting. Keep crockery and napkins to a neutral colour palatte and add a final flourish with a single stem, place card and decoration artfully placed on each table.
