Even in Spring, candlelight is a non-negotiable for a pretty table. We have customised a new set of Bougies la Francaise candles (called Summer) in seasonally appropriate shades. If you fancy something more striking, pick a single colour. Pair with simple, and low, enamel candlesticks. All the better to see across the table at your opposing number. Lord knows, we’re going to want to chat chat chat.
It’s most definitely the beginning of Spring but it can still be quite difficult to find enough, and enough various, flowers. Garden hellebores strike the perfect note of optimism and subtlety (daffodils do tend to bash you over the head with their yellowness). And if our wall of cabbage seems like vegetable overkill, feel free to make your own seasonal display. Perhaps a fresh greenery wreath?
