Creating a beautiful tablescape is a soothing, satisfying ritual.

From tastefully minimalist designs to statement settings, luxury tableware brand Plate & Peonie shares its expertise in curating a dreamlike tablescape.

The authentic and unique curation of tableware at Plate & Peonie is handpicked from across the globe, ranging from table linens and bar accessories, to serve ware and cutlery.

A tropical tablescape has always been one of my favourites! My foundation for this tablescape has always been lots of greens and earthy textures like jute, rattan, wicker or straw. From there, I add details with animals or palm tree dinner plates that truly bring a tropical feeling alive on the dinner table”, explains Anandita. “I like to add wicker cutlery and glassware, and jewelled bamboo or palm tree napkin rings as accessories to complete each place setting. Once the place setting is done, I like adding a runner or decorative accessories to add quirky touches to bring a good finishing touch. For example, I love using tree-shaped salt and pepper shakers, greens from the garden and wicker baskets with fruits as centrepieces,” she adds, giving us insights on the elements at play for a tropical tabletop.

I like my tabletop to always follow a colour palette or a theme to build on”, says Anandita. “Layering my tablescape is where all the fun comes in! I love using a mix of organic and earthy with jewel tones and detailed textures that elevate the spread. If I’m using a wicker mat, I like to pair that with an embellished napkin ring, or a beautiful gold-rimmed dinner plate to add a touch of sophistication to the whimsical”, she concludes, describing her signature style and aesthetics.
