This tablescape with a blackboard oilcloth is so charming~and what a great idea to have a (beer) tasting party. If beer isn't your thing cheese/wine/chocolate would work just as well.
looks like fun to me :)
Some of the elements that set the scene--London Times tissue liners, letterpress coasters, walnut coffee lamp, Finnish dart set, Blaak onion jam, checked cutting board, Fritz Hansen Series 7 Chair, Beer tasting set, Roaring Forties blue cheese.
