From mid-week suppers to a Sunday roast, we love any excuse to catch up over great food with even greater friends. And while we love a sunny day BBQ, there is something extra special about winter gatherings. A roaring fire creating a cosy atmosphere and offering warming, comforting and nourishing food on a chilly day feels good for the soul. Enjoy your time indoors over winter and find joy in the simple act of bringing people together for food. Discover a recipe perfect for afternoon tea or to finish your meal on a sweet note, and be inspired by how we’re styling our dining table for winter feasts.DISCOVER WINTER 23
Winter is the season to enjoy the rewards of harvest – which means eating all the delicious vegetables on offer. From slow cooked casseroles and hearty roasts to warming soups and one pot wonders, there are so many delicious winter dishes to enjoy with family and friends.
We recommend having a selection of dishes which can be pre-prepared (cook themselves!) to make winter hosting hassle free. Ask your guests to bring a complementary side dish to share the load and prepare your dessert earlier in the day.
Serving warming and wholesome family-style dishes celebrates all that is good about winter. Gathering friends around the dining table and sharing a lovingly made meal is a highlight of the chilly, darker months. Slow down, enjoy a cosy meal and savour the season.
Serve your warming winter menu accompanied by beautiful, rustic kitchen linens. Inspired by harvest season, winter pears and cosy baking, our Orchard Kitchen collection features a pear design in warm, rich tones and a delicious caramel pear cake recipe.
Made from pure cotton in practical darker colours and perfect for those who love to bake or spend time in the kitchen.

Inspired by Nature
Style your dining table for winter entertaining with elevated essentials to create a welcoming space for friends and family to gather in. We love a comforting, modern rustic look that feels friendly, natural and relaxed. Choose table linens in gentle tones inspired by nature which will form a timeless base for you to add personal styling to with fresh herbs or flowers, candles and crockery.
We’ve styled out Harvest Tablecloth with our Loft Linen Napkins and Terrace Linen Placemats for a coordinated look. Pop on an Orchard Kitchen Apron to prepare your feast, using our new Dorset Potholder to handle hot dishes and do the washing up with our Orchard Kitchen Tea Towel Set.
