Her approach, like here at a table set for a party in Jemima’s garden, is to decorate an outdoor table the same way you would decorate an indoor table, with the right table linens, crockery and glasses. “Using fabrics to create an indoor-outdoor feel can transform a garden dining area,” says Jemima. “A tablecloth is always the best place to start, and use proper linen napkins when possible: it helps give the signal that you’re not picnicking but eating al fresco.”
Here they’ve gone for an anniversary-appropriate red, white and blue theme, but without a string of Union Jack bunting or a commemorative teacup in sight. Instead, they chose a blue block-print tablecloth from their online shop, paired with red and white plates, rattan placemats from Anthropologie, bamboo-handled cutlery and bespoke Corgi and Beefeater-themed napkins from Initially London, as “a nod to the Queen’. Bordallo Pinheiro’s cabbage leaf bowls filled with strawberries are an easy (and edible) addition to the table, and red and white dinner candles add height to the center of the table.
The floral arrangement is a mix of bright blue delphiniums and white campanulas in tall vases mixed with bud vases filled with white and red peonies, deep red carnations and soft pink roses. “We wanted to use red, white and blue to keep it quintessentially British,” Jemima notes, “but it’s quite a bold palette, so we also added softer peachy roses to soften the edge a bit and add a little bit of personality.” Vintage feel.” The pink ribbon, matching the roses, makes for simple but pretty napkin ties.
