A touch of nature
With this look, start with your centrepiece. Because once you’ve got that right, the other details will fall more easily into place. Drape swathes of ivy and evergreen foliage along the length of the table. Using a mix of freshly picked winter walk's greenery and life-like stems will make your display easier to maintain, because you don’t want your berries to drop off before the brandy butter is even served! Intersperse greenery with garlands of frosted pine cones to add to the nature-table atmosphere.
Then, place pillar candles along and around the ivy trail, ensuring they're spaced so that guests’ faces are not obscured. Table ornaments with woody tones, such as our cheerful robins Sherlock and Watson, or Mr and Mrs Frost, look lovely peeping from a natural leafy setting.
The slightly rustic character of Bowsley crockery and serveware, hand-made and with a strong tactile presence, is the perfect partner for this natural table setting. Alongside. consider the slightly more formal Hoxton wine glasses and our Ella tumblers to keep the natural theme going, with hand-blown glass bubbles and a hint of jewel shades intertwined.
