Picking the pieces from the Elys Wimbledon Homeware department
With Wimbledon tennis and a hot summer a head of us I visited Elys to pick out 5 items to create a simple yet stunning summer table.
I started with a dark navy linen table cloth from Also Home. It’s a beautiful colour and perfect for using with plain white plates to make them really stand out from the table. I folded the table cloth in half to create a runner. I love the mix of a rough wood table and the elegance of a linen table cloth over the top.
The second product I went for my summer table were gin balloon glasses. These iconic glasses are now available to buy and perfect for drinks at home. They turn any excuse for a G&T into an experience. The balloon glasses I chose were the gold stemmed edition from LSA. The classic shape glass has a hand painted golden stem which glistens in the sunshine.
To go with the glasses of course I had to choose a bottle of gin. For the tennis and summer it had to be the Strawberries and Cream gin by Poetic License. This fruity flavoured gin offers an incredible taste of strawberries with a soft after taste of cream. It sounds odd but I promise it’s something different, that I think will be a hit this summer.
On a warm day with friends an ice cold G&T in the sunshine is a great way to spend your afternoons and evenings. All you need is a few nibbles to go with them. My forth choice from the Elys homeware department was the Ladelle serve stick. A stylish white ceramic bowl perfect for nibbles but what makes this extra special is it comes with a wooden handle.
Being able to pick up the handle and present the food for friends and family is lovely and I’ve not seen anything like it before. Elys also have a range of other items in this style including a large plate with a handle which would be great for homemade pizzas.
The final piece on my table is the gold handled salad servers. They tie into the gold accents on the gin glasses and the acacia wood has a similar warm toned wood to the handle on the serve stick. The pieces all work so well together on the dark table cloth. The long handled servers have a hammered gold pattern that glisten in the sunshine and will certainly encourage your guests to start eating.

2 part serving stick with handle by Ladelle £14.
