It's the social season; the time of year crammed with holiday parties, summer BBQs, and 'let's grab a drink before Christmas!' plans.


It's likely you may find yourself hosting friends or family at some point over the summer, and putting together a warm, welcoming tablescape to greet guests is an easy way to elevate your gathering and add a little sparkle and fun.





If a traditional festive aesthetic isn't your vibe, take inspiration from Kat and Yianna Velos, the sisters behind cult Melbourne olive oil brand Golden Groves, who are known for their eye for a beautiful table setting, always injected with their signature humour - see, this unexpected pairing.


We enlisted Kat and Yianna to put their unique spin on a festive tablescape, vibrant with colour and fun for the summer holidays, to inspire your own this season.

"As summer and the festive season approach hard and fast, we’re all tasked with curating unique and considered tablescapes in the lead up to our celebrations.


"The impossible task of getting family and friends together swiftly turns into the joyous task of setting the table for yet another get together, at this time of year when the days seem long and the evenings even longer.


When people ask what makes a good tablescape, the answer is simple - anything from youtime.


Curious candles from Hannah Jewett in unique forms make for an eye catching addition to the table, vases hand crafted out of travertine from Mason Wylde lend an earthy authenticity to your spread and classy brass candleholders from Black Blaze add an edge of sophistication to the scene.

These additions paired with a quick and rudimentary food installation as a centrepiece, such as a simple bread tower punctuated with seasonal summer florals will be sure to delight your guests.


Wishing everyone a happy and joyous festive season!"
