Spring Tablescaping Inspiration

  • Hands up if you’re favourite thing to see blooming in spring are tulips? We thought so. Which is why we’re even more thrilled that Yolke has chosen this beautiful bud as the inspiration for its new table linen collection. Simply throw over the table, add matching napkins and a few pieces of mismatched crockery and glassware for that impromptu (yet ultra chic) al fresco picnic feel.

Though with so many ideas for enchanting pastel coloured schemes, you could find that it’s impossible to choose just one to emulate. Need a helping hand? All of the looks are shoppable from

  • Bordallo Pinheiro

    Why keep the cabbage patch to the garden? Bordallo Pinheiro’s iconic cabbage leaf plates get a sugary sweet new look here with additional layered ceramic and daisy plates. And of course the piece-de-resistance of any spring tablescape – an unruly wildflower bouquet.

  • Gayle Warwick napkins

    If you have crockery, napkins or serveware you’d like to make a feature out of, take note from this fresh, simple place setting. Delicate evergreen hues of peony pink and mossy green pick out the colours in the design of linen Victoria napkins by Gayle Warwick, which are hand-embroidered with exquisite blooms from an 1873 Victorian flower album.

  • Summerill & Bishop pink hydrangeas

    Forget millennial pink. SS21 is all about bold and beautiful raspberry and rosehip shades – like Summerill & Bishop‘s Pink Hydrangeas linen, inspired by Notting Hill’s lush communal gardens.


  • Molly Simmonds Amelia Duncan tablescaping

    Event styling duo, Milly Simmonds and Amelia Duncan of Olive & Co, brought this pattern-saturated table to life by layering hand painted crockery, wild spring flowers and table linen from Yolke and glass candlesticks from Issy Granger.
