A Fruity Centrepiece – Front Roe by Louise Roe
Floral arrangements are the typical choice for centrepieces which you’ve probably seen in my many tablescape designs. However, an alternative to flower centrepieces that I’ve been embracing recently are fruit centrepieces. As well as being pretty, they’re edible! What’s not to love?
Working from the warm mustard and honey tones of the wildflowers in the field, I put together a tablescape I adore! The tan and caramel tones of our Little Flower hand-blocked tablecloth, our Napa cognac embroidered napkins, and the touches of terracotta on the table, merge beautifully with the deep rustic greens, like our Pintora bowl and Fortuna jug. I added more persimmon tones to the table with flowers, an old clay pot and juicy oranges. Oranges are such a vibrant fruit and so make a very bold centrepiece. I framed the oranges in the pine Amandine fruit bowl to balance the tones of this elegant tablescape and to really make a statement with this fruit centrepiece. As they say, we eat with our eyes first, so why not try a show-stopping fruit centrepiece for your next dinner party?
