Basic but beautiful table setting ideas

Big gatherings don’t need a fancy table setting to feel festive. You can get great results with basic tableware too. And since it costs less, you can afford more of it and invite more family and friends. Because what’s important is being together.

A chopping board like this is a hard-wearing kitchen companion, and because it’s made from fast-growing bamboo, it’s a more sustainable choice. It can also be used to serve, adding a warm, wooden touch to your table setting.

Let your flowers shine

A simple clear glass vase brings out the best in cut flowers, no matter if they're singles or a bouquet. It won’t compete with the flowers or clash with your table setting.

Make your own placemats and runners

Add a personal touch to your table setting with your choice of metre fabric cut to size. Sober and subdued or bright and colourful, it’s up to you. And why not add a rustic touch by fraying the edges?
