Whether you’re planning to have traditional Haggis, Neeps & Tatties or something a little different our vast collection of charger plates are the perfect canvas for Burns Supper dishes.

Below we show you how to style and recreate Burns Supper inspired looks for your own event by combining our charger plates with additional products we supply such as Candelabras, Glassware, Seat Ties and various linen collections.

Look 1 - Contemporary Checks

There is always the concern that by using similar shades of a colour together the table styling will become a blur. Use a combination of different textures such as Smoke Grey, Pewter, Gloss and Lattice in unison to create sympathetic contrasts.

Look 2 - Traditional Tartan 

Let our traditional tartan take centre stage. Pairing Blackwatch, Bruce or Lyndsay tartan with cut crystal glassware and beaded charger plates enables the bold plaids to be seen in all thier glory.
