Spring is a celebration of new beginnings, the natural landscape reawakens and bursts with colour, the gloom of winter is replaced with light and the promise of warmer days and indiscriminate blue skies. A spring table, whether it is for a gathering of friends, a family celebration or Easter itself, it should reflect and celebrate these bright seasonal tones.
It may not be quite warm enough to embrace an outdoor alfresco spring scene just yet but there are a number of ways to give a feeling of being outside. Positioning a table near to a window can give the illusion of being outdoors. If you don’t have a garden view, then place some pots on an outside window ledge. Inside, ensure you have a selection of planters displaying the verdant shades of house plants or the paler greens of succulents and cacti. It’s proven that a display of greenery and plant life is great for our well-being and a welcome connection with the outdoors. In this case it also adds to the natural colour palette and fresh, spring feel.
Fill vases or recycled jars, with freshly cut flowers; the aroma alone will transport you outside. Our Toska and Chara vases have a translucent glass finish that allows the light to pass through, showcasing the stems and blooms within. Blossoming tree branches and vivid evergreens can be just as striking as flowers; their more defined contours can be a bold statement. Replicate spring floral scenes by filling bowls with moss, or pre-planted spring blooms; our new Darassa stoneware collection is the perfect back drop.
When it comes to laying the table, carefully choose your tableware. Brightly coloured ceramics add a playful and fun look. Our Dakara and Bao ceramic collections have stunning glazes that pop with colour. Create a light-hearted table scene by mixing different coloured bowls and plates; mustard yellows display beautifully against dark greys, for contrast add in dusky pinks and serene, tranquil blues. Glassware should be relaxed and rustic, our Ziki collection has Moroccan feel and is perfect for cordials or wine. Natural and sustainable wooden salad bowls, and decorative ceramic bowls will add to the overall colour and detail of the table. Elegant Idha lanterns and natural candlelight are suggestive of the long drawn out evenings we hope are to follow…..
