Spring: In the Shop

4 May, 2022

This spring, set the table with us.

To us, dressing the table for a party or event can truly establish the mood. From the floral palette – how it explores colour, texture, height and scent – to the accompanying linens, candles, glassware and finishing touches, whatever the reason to celebrate, our approach is to make it as personal as possible. This means considering every aspect; the venue, guests, menu, season, and – most importantly – what is happening outside. Our spring tablescapes are here to inspire your next entertaining space, setting the atmosphere, while helping you to remember that each savoured occasion is made to be enjoyed.

The Forget-Me-Not Table

Soft in texture and tone, much like the cutting garden in early April days, recreate this tablescape for your next seasonally-inspired event. Dusty pink and powder blue Nosse ceramics are teamed with rich mattone riserva Bertozzi linens and gleaming silver cutlery to create a fresh setting made for alfresco spring drinks or lunchtimes outdoors.

The Muscari Jewel Table

Filled with deep blue tones, evocative of spring skies or days on the coast, bring the outdoors inside with Tabo and Yolanda serveware in pared-back tones, and crisp Bertozzi linens. Paired with crystal glassware and towering taper candles, simply add seasonal flowers and food.

A Maker’s Hand: Artist Collaboration

Collectible Miniatures by Yuta Segawa and Miyu Kurihara for Petersham Nurseries

Sophie Wilson is known for her beautiful ceramic collection, applying techniques inspired by Blackwork embroidery first used in England in the 15th and 16th century. This is interpreted into ceramic form where terracotta, white slip and sgraffito imitate the sewn technique.

This plate and jug is a piece that she made exclusively for Petersham Nurseries. Speaking on subversive ceramic artists, Sophie says "...in a culture of ones and zeros, it seems to me that being flawed, authentic, even calm is as about as subversive as it gets".
