Laura’s Beau Top 5 Summer Floral Tablecloths

26th June 2014

With the summer season upon us, here at Laura’s Beau we have put together our favourite summery tablecloths for our gardens and home! These look good to either liven up your kitchen, or to put on an outside table when having a BBQ!

Our number one choice is of course, our William Morris Lily fabric, consisting of bunches of wildflowers such as bluebells and daisies, this is perfect for summer! Some our tablecloths come in both cotton and a PVC coated fabric- the PVC is perfect for when you are dining outside!

Our Ribbons & Roses fabric is also perfect for the summer months, it is an exclusive design from Laura’s Beau, from our Late 1800 to Early 1900 French archive. The design holds an element of vintage yet it has a moden edge, the French vibe is extremely evident looking at the design.

Exclusively designed by Laura’s Beau, our Fleur design would also look lovely during the summer months. Our inspiration when creating Fleur were grand French country houses, which we feel we achieved with the beautiful white background with blue design. The placemats for these tablecloths are also wonderful- the pattern is reversed on these with a blue background with white trailing flowers- this creates a wonderful contrast when on your table!

Our licensed William Morris Merton Blue tablecloths would also be perfect for the summer season, with the blue and white floral design being timeless since Morris designed it in 1888. With this tablecloth you can give your summer parties some history, whilst keeping it modern and bright with the beautiful blue colour in the fabric. This looks wonderful in the PVC tablecloths too, and is a great alternative for a cotton tablecloth when you are having a party and don’t want to risk stains on your cotton tablecloth!

Our final summer tablecloth choice would be our Lavender design, an exclusive Laura’s Beau design it evokes the feeling of summer with the pattern reminicent of an English lavender field.

We'd say Morris more than succeeded, with timeless designs and words, it shows true beauty and art will never age 🌿 Morris wrote this quote in "The Well At The World's End: Volume I." Have you ever read much of his poetry or writing? ✍️

Important conversation of the day at Laura's Beau HQ: who fancies a crumble and which is your favourite flavour? 🍎 Apple seems popular, so does rhubarb ☀️ One thing we can agree on is that we're all going to be baking them tonight - best get our fave oven gloves out! 👩‍🍳 These are our licensed William Morris Eyebright double oven gloves, isn't it such a beautiful pattern 🤍

A close up of our beautiful licensed William Morris Trellis 😍 Isn't it such a timeless design, it was first designed in 1864, inspired by the rose trellis in Morris's garden at beautiful Red House 🌿 It was the first wallpaper Morris designed, along with Daisy and Fruit. 
Because the three designs were produced using a hand printing process, each colour needed a separate block and for the three designs it was 12 blocks each so was a long and expensive process. Therefore, they were all put on hold until the early 1870s when Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & co. had enough money to finance the designs 🎨We love the Trellis design, currently our tea towel is hanging over the cooker - we always wonder if Morris could ever have foreseen that his design in 1864 would be so well loved all these years later? 🤍
