Do you know the feeling of having to have guests and not knowing how to approach the empty table?

Sometimes you need inspiration from outside. We have therefore asked three talented women for their take on what a summer table can look like. Read and watch this article.

If you don't already follow the talented @hanna.look, her Instagram profile is definitely worth a visit. Hanna is from Germany, lives in Berlin and works, among other things, as a model. See Hanna's Instagram profile here: @hanna.look

Hanna is inspired by natural materials and focuses on food when she sets the table:

Hanna: "I often use different green and recyclable materials in my table setting and in my home.  I am incredibly inspired by Scandinavian designers and florists”

Do you have a good rule of thumb for styling the perfect table?

Hanna “I usually start by choosing which colors should be in focus. If I want a calm, natural color palette, I often use linen and wood as a base and add flowers, lights etc. to create atmosphere. And not least, I always have the food to be served in mind and how it will look as a whole.

Do you have a tip you want to pass on?

Hanna "flowers and lights are always a welcome feature and not least LESS IS MORE"

Hanna has styled with Flower tube, 65200A, Standing flower bubble, 802080S and Standing plant bubble, 805550T

We have been helped by the talented Norwegian photographer Sofie Sund. Sofie has a completely unique eye for detail and the minimalist expression. We asked her what she considers important to create the right atmosphere at her table.

Sofie is inspired for her work through many things, including magazines, books, various designers and brands. Sofie's home is minimalist and the dining area is built around white walls and a white dining table. That way, there is more space to play with strong colors and flowers in the interior.

Do you have any "rules" you follow when setting the table?

Sofie “No, I think you should discard rules and think a little outside the box. A good idea is to choose something to start from. I often choose to start from the service I want to use. Besides the crockery, the most important thing is the flowers, whether it is from a florist or a bouquet found in the forest doesn't matter, but the absolutely most important thing for me is that the colors in the entire table setting complement each other. It is the colors that tie everything together.”

Sofie's tip for you:

“Have fun, try your hand and be creative. You can use almost everything from home, old and new combined. And don't forget that nature offers so much beauty.”

Sofie has styled with Flower tube, 65160R , Standing Flower Bubble 802050Y and Standing Flower Bubble 802050A .

How do you approach your table setting?

Cecilie: " I almost always have a very basic and timeless service and therefore the "big" players always end up being the flowers, candles, vases, napkins or other decorations."

What is your best advice for a delicious table?

Cecilie "Like to mix colours, but keep the same tone"  "Besides, there's nothing a beautiful bouquet can't fix"
