Botanical Table Settings

Setting the table for a feast can be great fun, and you can use what you have in the garden. From contemporary green and white to flamboyant colour and country flair, we show you some ideas on how to achieve the perfect table scape for summer entertaining.

Calming pastel shades make this table a soft and inviting space. It’s relaxed and perfect for a garden setting.

We re-purposed an old metal hanging basket by spraying it with bronze spray-paint, hanging it upside down and adding ribbons and daisies to make a delightful chandelier for the table.

Watering cans in pastel shades make perfect receptacles for flowers and greenery picked from the garden. The haphazard way the flowers are placed in the container adds to the country feel. A soft botanical-print tablecloth, candle holders and a few baubles tie the centerpiece together.

For the place settings we used pale pinks, serviettes tied with string and curved glasses to complement the theme.

A dash of bright colour was added to the clear glassware in the form of pink-spotted paper straws.
