Casual outdoor tabletop


Take a seat
Keep the table setting fuss-free. A centrepiece of fresh florals in ceramic pitchers, in-season muskmelons, unmatched tumblers and vintage lanterns set a casual-chic tone. The kelly green café chairs, brought out from inside, pick up the colour of the natural surroundings and the lanterns, which, when lit, emit a soft glow as the sun sets.

Casual floral centrepieces


In bloom
Display large, freshly cut blooms in unexpected vessels. Here, roses and peonies are arranged in a simple water glass and an antique tin coffee pot. Throughout the table setting, unmatched ceramic pitchers, urns and a selection of vintage containers showcase more lovely pink flowers.
