Christmas Dining With The Borrowed Nursery

Date Posted:21 November 2019 


Beautiful Seasonal Dining Style with I Love Linen x The Borrowed Nursery

We've been friends with the powerhouse that is Lauren Lance for a few years now. A local business like us, Lauren is passionate about plants and interiors and our paths have crossed many a time, over a glass of wine or two. It was therefore a natural progression to decide we should style up some beautiful Christmas table designs to showcase how lovely French Linen tablecloths and napkins create the perfect backdrop against stunning floral displays. 

We briefed Lauren to work with us on a stunning Earthy Tones look and an equally beautiful Calm Coastal design. Both of which we hope you love and are inspired to recreate yourself.



Q: What do you love about working with Earthy Tones

"I am really drawn to the colours of this table setting, and it's easier than you might think to create a version of this for yourself at home.

Foraged dried palms created the base, and I used preserved florals and foliage in white tones to create a Christmas feel including Ruscus, Amaranthas and Lunaria. Locally grown Crows ash added a star shape and add natural colour to complement the rust tablecloth."

Q: How to Create a Fresh and Coastal table?

"This was a really beautiful design to work on! We kept the concept fairly minimal and used some tall ceramic vessels to create some height and structure to the table. Light colours were incorporated through dried Leather Fern, Ruscus and Bunny Tails. This setting was also about adding a fresh feel, and green was added through fresh Poppies and Lotus Leaves.

This is a table I can really see a beautiful meal being enjoyed, keeping the food minimal and fresh, and some delicious bubbles of course!"
