Spring or Summer Table: decorations glow in the sunlight for a new beginning

The summer table and the spring table speak of simple natural decorations, of lunches and dinners served outdoors in the garden, of shared events and family occasions. Setting the table in the spring invites the use of garden and wild flowers - wisteria, peach blossoms and tamarisk embrace each other creating an enchanting play of perfumes and colours.

Decorations of a summer table suggest buffets and aperitifs, galas and informal gatherings, but also festivities such as Easter, the Assumption (15 August), birthdays, baptisms and communions. The forms of the napkins, a centrepiece of flowers, the cutlery and china all contribute to the joyful conviviality, of being together.
