Tour de France Tea Party

27th June 2014

If you have been following our twitter and Instagram accounts, you will know that here at Laura’s Beau we are very excited for the upcoming Tour de France to ride through Harrogate!

We think the event is the perfect time to get your friends together for a Tour de France themed tea party! Along with a few of our French tablecloths, we have found some decorations to complete your themed event!

From our late 1800 early 1900 French Archive, our Ribbons and Roses fabric is perfect for a tea party- especially when paired with the matching placemats and napkins, which really complete the table and make it look sophisticated for your tea party.

These Pre- cut Tour de France edible cup cake decorations are perfect for your event, a simple decoration that is perfect for keeping the theme for your party.

Another design that would look lovely is our Charlotte Rose design. Also reproduced from our French Archive, this design looks wonderful with the cakes placed upon a cake stand, as you can see in the photo.

This bunting looks great in either the Tour de France yellow colour with a quirky Yorkshire twist, or alternative, a printed French flag looks great too! If the weather permits and you are able to have your celebration outside, this bunting would look wonderful hung around the garden.

Our final French tablecloth suggestion is in our Fleur fabric. With the white background and blue trailing flower design printed upon it, with the reverse coloration in the placemats this design looks wonderful on a table- inside or outside throughout the summer! The French inspiration here is clear, as well as our vision that this would look wonderful in a grand French country home.

We hope you enjoy your themed event! Please send us any photos you take during your event so we can mention you in a future blog!

Dreaming of the sunshine 💭 This is our smallest size of tote bag, in our licensed William Morris Strawberry Thief, on this bike ride we were pretty happy that it was filled to the brim with snacks to eat on the beach ☀️ On Wintery nights we love to look back on the sunshine! ☁️

“The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life” - William Morris. Some days, for us, that means decorating our tables with napkin bows and settling down for a slice of cake! 🧁

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? ✍️

A little fabric stack full of William Morris floral magic 🌿
Is anyone else a little excited that it's only 100 days until Christmas... or is it too soon to talk about? We're quite excited for Christmas crafts, food and films! ☺️ We wonder what your favourite Morris design is? Does it change based on season? 🎄 (it's far too early for this emoji but we're excited and can't help it, sorry.)

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? 🤍
