I recently launched my Coastal table setting collection. This includes both coasters and napkins. They come in matching prints , such as the crab print you see above. I loved designing and drawing this print, it reminds me of summers on the coast here on the Isle of Wight. As well as designing my fabric designs ,I do love setting a table.
Here I used these gorgeous straw planters, you can most likely find them in your local garden centre. I always feel adding a bit of green to the table is a perfect way to elevate it into becoming a coastal style paradise. The wooden plank you can see briefly underneath was actually found down on the beach. It's perfect for a small garden dining set up, where you can sit on cushions during warm nights on the grass. I used red placemats to pick up the red of the crab. These were my Grandmothers' back in the 80's.
Of course adding a gorgeous drink to your table during cocktail hour is always a lovely addition. It also added colour to my table.! Here you can see a pitcher of Aperol Spritz. I mix aperol , prosecco and dashes of orange slices in mine.
