March Dinner Party Inspiration in Blush Pink Linen + Fresh Flowers
SPRING IS IN THE AIR! (At least in Germany it is!) So let us welcome tender blossoms and sofa shades at home, what do you think? This is Anke, back with a new tabletop column for you after a winter break. I hope you are well, dear readers! Are you ready to be inspired for your next dinner party?
The materials and props that I chose this time around are glass, vases and tealight holders, as it helps to create a light and fresh feeling, which is exactly what we want after dark winter months, right!? You will also see fine linen.
These beautiful blush pink linen napkins (Serviette Leinen) are from Holly’s exclusive and limited edition for DEPOT (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) that is available only until 21 March, 2019 - and definitely my favorite styling item on the table. Besides the color, they are quite impressive with their wonderful texture.
Tiny three-footed pottery coasters (Untersetzer Holly) are on trend with a handmade look, also from the same collection, and hold coarse sea salt next to each guest’s plate.
And there is my white tableware of course, the perfect pieces which complement almost any tabletop theme.
A large glass vase is holding flowering quince while smaller vases are filled with Ranunculus, Tulips, Cloves and delicate blooming twigs.
Matching to the season, a delicious and eye-catching appetizer for guests is this Blood Orange and Fennel Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella, Pomegranate Seeds & Smoked Almonds. It is beautiful to arrange on a big plate and heavenly aromatic. I served fresh baguette with it.
As mentioned above I like the linen napkins a lot. It made me think how I could possibly use them apart from their intended purpose. I tried with knotting them together to a linen garland and was quite happy with the result!
I hope one or other of my springlike tabletop ideas is inspiring for you and if so would love to know which one! Have a good and pleasant time, dear decor8 readers!- Love, Anke
