{Table Manners} Inspiring Table Settings For Patio Season

 Photography by Don Freeman

Just in time for the spring and summer patio season, today's inspiration is an array of stunning serving pieces and enchanting patterns to make the most of any meal or occasion. Although each piece is unique and gorgeous in its own right, some stand-out pieces for me include: the pomegranate coloured lacquer tray (in the first photo on the right) as well as the chevron block-print napkin by Madeline Weinrib which looks fantastic paired up with the purple and blue toned dishware (shown in the third photograph). These images inspire me to mix-and-match dishware and have fun with patterns and textures. Who says that dishes and cups all have to match? How boring! The lune decanter and tumbler from Bergdoft Goodman is absolutely exquisite and would be the perfect piece to use whilst serving a cold drink to friends on a hot day. Plus, I'm loving the bohemian-inspired tableware on the bottom left photo and how gold and goblets were mixed together in the bottom right-hand table setting. It reminds me of royalty! You and your friends can be Kings and Queens for the day. How lovely! Which setting is your favourite? Cheers to a Happy Tuesday!
