Late spring is one of my favourite times of the year. The warmer weather invites us out into the garden, treating us to blossoming trees and flowers. Lush nature is the perfect backdrop, especially for afternoon tea and cake on a sunny afternoon. Gatherings with family and friends are truly special when spent in the garden, aren’t they? And it doesn’t take much to make them cosy and memorable.
KISSED BY NATURE
When I get ready for a garden party, I still want my guests to feel comfortable. The natural tones of Matrix embroidered GOTS-certified cushion covers go nicely with the weathered-look of teak patio furniture, especially when they’re dappled by the shade from the trees. It’s an amazing interplay of light and texture.
A WELL-DRESSED TABLE
And no matter what I’m serving, a must-have for the table are 100% linen napkins adorned with the dainty pattern known as Stars in the Morning. They add softness and style to any table setting. Not to mention, linen napkins are produced by eco-friendly means AND they are eco-friendly to use, because we’re using fewer paper products. Your guests will surely feel special, too.
THE SWEET TASTES OF SPRING
Then, of course, there are the tastes of spring. Fresh bursts of flavour that remind us that summer is just around the corner. Strawberries and cheesecake anyone?
