Summer Setting

Summer lunches in the sun + al fresco dinner parties are in full swing. Planning the tablescape is the best part (at least we think so!). We are loving all white table linens with pops of colourful flowers and of course monogrammed initials. See our summer settings mood board below…

Midsommar

Midsummer [‘midsommar’ in Swedish] is one of the most important days of the year in Sweden. Bring on the sunlight, schnapps and pickled herring (something we like to avoid). Tables draped with all white linens and bouquets of freshly picked wildflowers. Who wouldn’t love a never-ending lunch, wearing flowers in your hair, dining, singing, drinking and dancing? Gotta love the Swedes…

Table Dance

A beautifully set table, delicious dinner and dancing…what more could one ask for in an evening? If only every night could end with dancing…

Something About Birds…

Birds are said to symbolise freedom, which we can all agree is something to love. From our ILINKA Collection 5 de mayo napkins to Audrey Hepburn’s heron bedspread; let’s admire all things bird inspired…
