Maison Fête's Table Styling Workshops immerses participants in a full-day journey, marrying the art of table styling with elegant educational experiences. Hosted at Hall Barn, the impressive estate which has been featured in period dramas such as The Crown, this exclusive workshop offers a unique opportunity to visit this private historical residence.

The day begins at 10:00 am with tea and coffee in the library and a short welcome by our hosts. The opening session covers both the theoretical underpinnings and practical aspects of table styling. The workshop includes hands-on floral arranging and menu writing, offering a tangible touch to the day's learning. The workshop will take place around the estate, including a glass of champagne by the 18th-century lake, allowing you to enjoy the breathtaking gardens as our hosts guide you through the historic journey of this private home. A sit-down lunch provides for a perfect pause, oftering a moment to digest the day's lessons while engaging in rich discussions about entertaining, table styling and the nuances of English countryside living.

Participants will also have the exclusive opportunity to purchase antique pieces showcased on the table. To cap off the experience, attendees will take home a bouquet of flowers, their personalised menu and name card, ensuring the day's elegance and inspiration linger long after the workshop.

About Hall Barn Estate

Hall Barn, an exquisite estate built by poet Edmund Waller between 1675 and 1687, sits on historic land once belonging to the Abbey of Burnham. The enchanting grounds, designed by renowned landscape architects Robert Bridgeman and John Aislabie, feature the stunning Grove with its elegant temples and statues. In 1742, architect Colin Campbell added the impressive "Great Room" by the lake.

The Oak Lodge entrance boasts intricate carvings from Persia and Belgium, completed by the first Lord Burnham. Recent restorations have lovingly returned Hall Barn to its original grandeur.

This workshop takes place both indoors and outdoors, please dress appropriately including comfortable shoes to walk in.

A pick-up and drop-off service from Beaconsfield Station is available for guests. Parking is also available on-site.
