Festive Tablescapes with Green Asiatic Pheasants

This Autumn we introduced the Green Asiatic Pheasants collection, the perfect festive backdrop to your table this Christmas.

Our ware continues to be decorated in the same way now as it was in the 19th century, using our unique tissue transfer process, imbuing the pieces with a distinctive quality unmatched by other decoration methods, being sure to give your guests the wow factor this festive season. Naturally infused with our unrivalled style, this extension to Asiatic Pheasants in deep shades of green celebrates the way in which Burleigh has been decorating its wares with traditional tissue transfer since it began in 1851. 

This Christmas, we have welcomed Kathy Hurst, to feature on our blog and she shares her top tips for creating the perfect festive tablescape this winter.

Kathy Hurst is a freelance interiors journalist whose work has appeared in a variety of national magazines and newspapers. She has recently completed an MA in Creative Writing and is working on a novel. Her Instagram account @rocking_the_cotswolds documents her love of interiors and fashion, where you can of course see Burleigh featured in her beautiful home. 

Kathy recommends:

  • Think about your focal points. If I’m using patterned crockery like the Burleigh Green Asiatic Pheasants, I’ll opt for simple table linen and napkins so the designs have some breathing space
  • Use a place mat to give texture and depth. Chargers – essentially oversized plates – help add impact
  • A floral centrepiece and candles lend elegance and atmosphere
  • Using cut glass or crystal reflects light and helps to create a decadent feel. I like to use heavy, stainless-steel cutlery which feels luxurious and tactile
  • I like to include personal touches in place settings, whether its hand-written place names, or sprigs of herbs tucked into napkin rings

Create your own tablescape at home this festive season and shop the Green Asiatic Pheasants collection now to create this look at home, and enjoy browsing the gifts within the collection too.
