How to : summer table setting
A summer favourite of ours, and one which we start to devise months in advanced, is summer entertaining, and this is not compromised when it comes to our table settings. Unable to hold back, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Nautilus Estate to showcase relaxed but polished summer settings that you can easily recreate for your next soirée.
Down to earth
Warm, earthy tones paired with neutrals and a simple striped feature napkin gives an air of ease without it being imprudent. Tie it all together with fresh herbs or foliage and give it a pop of colour with a bolder colour glassware, dotted with neutral ceramics.
Just a taste
Pre-BBQ nibbles don’t have to involve an extravagant platter with $100 worth of high-end crackers and cheese. Grab seasonal foods - a few avocados and some juicy, summer stone fruits for guests to snack on and which will go beautifully with a Nautilus Estate 2018 Sauvignon Blanc or 2017 Pinot Gris.
The cherry on top
Summer soirées can also be shared between two. If you’re after more of a back-yard, Sunday afternoon vibe, then grab a floor cushion each, a punnet of cherries and head into the sun for a glass of Nautilus Estate 2017 Chardonnay. No dinnerware, linen or cutlery necessary - simply you and the sun.
