A Summer lunch setting with wooden trestle tables

The Brief

Oasis supports the planning of relaxed summer lunch parties at private homes in the Cotswolds.  The hosts may live in or work in London or abroad and benefit from our local knowledge and network.

We pull together neatly planned lunches, designed to become late nights…

Copper cutlery and striped napkins

The Solution

On long lawns stretching away under a willow tree and out to the Cotswold hills, or under a picturesque stretch tent canopy, an indulgently long, beautifully dressed table welcomes guests.

Oasis carefully researches furniture, for style, comfort and importantly size – relevant to the service of sharing bowls, and the styling elements planned for the table.

Tableware and styling by selected suppliers uses a variety of styles including “natural” ceramics, mismatched vintage water glasses paired with elegant wine goblets, and copper cutlery tied into blue & white striped ticking napkins with natural twine, handwritten name tags, fresh herbs, and natural materials.

The freshest of blooms, as if scooped from the garden that morning, are paired with candles for dusk.

Weather and temperature solutions on standby… heaters, blankets, parasols, even umbrellas…

Food sourced locally and cooked simply on fire, and in sharing bowls.

Corners of cosy furniture, live music and sunshine…
