The Easter weekend is upon us, which can only mean one thing – CHOCOLATE. But before you can eat chocolate, there’s Easter lunch to be had. And if there’s Easter lunch to be had, there are Easter tables to be set.
The long weekend provides an opportunity to gather around with friends and family and celebrate the last of the beautiful sunny days that are left, so we’ve rounded up some our table linen classics as a kind of mealtime mood board. We hope that they serve as a reminder of how much fun it can be to dress up your tabletop, and that there’s something Mungo for everyone – no matter your style or taste.
The Boma napkin is a fun addition to any table setting. Available in an array of colour combinations – some more neutral and others bold and bright.
As the name suggests, the Mali table runner is also an African-inspired Mungo staple. Creating a colourful, eye-catching line down the centre of your table, it’s a design bound to make any meal look magical.
POPS OF COLOUR
If the bright yellow Mali is a bit too bold for you to commit to, a great way to add a bit of fun and colour to your meal is with the cloth you use for serving. Enter the Vadoek cloth – available in 6 different colour ways, it’s our vibrant, contemporary take on the boring tea towels of grannies past.
If it’s a slightly more subtle splash of colour you’e after, a nice halfway measure is the simple stripe. Our Selvedge serviettes are the perfect way to keep things mostly neutral, with just a thin band of colour running along the edge. Having these in an assortment of colours also means you can assign napkins, meaning there can be no confusing yours with your greasy uncle’s…
For the more modest of table decorators, the Lisburn Table Runner and the Provincial Stripe tablecloth are simple, timeless pieces that can be used on an everyday table, but also look beautiful in any setting, on any occasion.
For those who like to keep it clean and uncomplicated with a white or flax palette, there’s always our classic 100% linen Kamma serviettes and tablecloths, or our Cloverleaf tablecloth with its subtle detailing. Adding sprigs of greenery is a also beautiful touch to a neutral table setting, emphasising its natural feel and the sophisticated simplicity of these linen pieces.
