How to dress your table for dinner with friends
While a beautiful tablecloth is always wonderful, we think using a runner feels more relaxed. We used one made of natural jute fibre with a little pop of lime round its edges for texture and the merest whisper of colour. Layers of white on white are classic, and when you’re using cool stoneware, it feels fresh, not fusty. And it’s the little details that your guests will remember: a handwritten menu feels special, but can be pulled together in very little time. Remember to put out one glass for wine and another for water, and don’t get hung up on matching these to your dinnerware. We think the best dinner parties happen over tables that aren’t too precious about the details.
