For the Welcome Supper of Litha 2018, we wanted to focus the concept on the power of the single stem with a pressed flower table runner and commissioned tableware with press flower imprints by Paige Mitchell. To best suit the reclaimed nature of the space, flowers were dressed within reclaimation yard finds with pressed flower pillar candles bringing further texture.
A soft palette was created for this room in pale blue, off-white and soft mustard tones, with the dried grasses of summer and pressed flowers mixing with beautiful British flowers. Textures layered together – with wooden table tops, pale blue table runner, mustard linen napkins, textural ceramics, speckled tealights, terracotta reclaimed vases and vintage eclectic silver cutlery.
A custom design Litha wax seal was added to menu design, with place cards appearing as welcome button-holes for all guests to wear for the dinner. A delicious welcome meal followed with lots of sharing platters and artisanal breads. The perfect start to the three day course.
