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.

🌷 William Morris month day 30 🌷 As we come near the end of Morris month, we’re celebrating with a fabric stack, full of beautiful licensed designs, which is your fave? 🌿 “Remember that a pattern is either right or wrong. It cannot be forgiven for blundering, as a picture may be which has otherwise great qualities in it. It is with a pattern as with a fortress, it is no stronger than its weakest point.”- William Morris 🤍

🌿 William Morris Day 20 🌿 William Morris fact of the day; did you know he founded the Kelmscott Press? 🖋️ He wrote of the venture – “Here is a new craft to conquer and to perfect.” Printing began at the press in Spring 1891 🪴 He designed multiple fonts including “Golden” Roman typeface and “Troy” Gothic type along with “Chaucer” and he worked to create beautiful books in regards to their designs which took into account their type, image and decorative elements – you can see beautiful examples of what he achieved today if you do a quick search on the Kelmscott Press- it’s well worth a Google! 🌷

🍓 William Morris Month Day 14 🍓 Strawberry Thief was inspired by William Morris’s watching the thrushes under the strawberry nets at the stunning @kelmscottmanor 🌿 May Morris conjured up this scene when speaking of the design, “You can imagine my Father going out in the early morning and watching the rascally thrushes at work on the fruit beds and telling the fanned who growls ‘I’d like to wring their necks!’ that no bird in the garden must be touched. There were certainly more birds than strawberries in spite of attempts at protection. And the walls of the little dining-room are hung with this note of the June garden and the little lords of it.” 🍓 What a lovely insight into the Morris family life! 🥰
