8 Fresh Linen Tableware Colour Combinations to Try This Summer

Going out for a nice meal in summer feels special for a reason. Someone else is cooking, it's warm, and the tables are perfectly laid out to enhance the dining experience. And while you might not be able to recreate a chef's cooking at home, what you can do is set the scene so that your dining table looks restaurant-worthy and perfect for a summer soirée at home.

One of the easiest and most impressive ways to achieve this is by dressing up your table to create a showstopping tablescape - And it all starts with your linen choices. A tablecloth alone will do the trick, but by adding placemats and napkins as well you'll really take things up a notch and create a restaurant-like table setting at home. 

Whether you're entertaining for a special occasion or enjoying a midweek meal, we've rounded up a fabulous selection of linen tableware colour combinations to try this summer. They are sure to inspire you to dine at home in style and you can recreate all of these looks with our Build Your Own Table Bundle.

A more unexpected combo that works so beautifully together, Lavender & Petrol scalloped placemats and napkins sit atop a Sage tablecloth to create a look that's alluring and trans-seasonal.
