Papier x Hoste, Laura’s very own lifestyle brand, is a new collection of menus, place cards, hosting books, recipe notebooks and even invitations that will dress up your tablescape and give a personal touch to whatever you’ve got cooking.

Drawing on her years of experience as a supper club host, Laura has kept the designs relaxed and playful, with fun colour combinations (think a pastel blue next to a pop of burnt orange) that are memorable for all of the right reasons. And whether your handwriting rivals a calligrapher’s finest work or could use a little polish, once you put it on these Papier pieces, it’ll instantly look more elegant and refined.

Laura’s ‘Hoste-ing’ tips

  • Leave menus blank so that you can pull them out and jot down what’s cookin’ when you have friends or family round for a spontaneous sit-down
  • After hosting a dinner, why not send a recipe notecard to each guest with a fun memory on one side and the recipe on the other so they can make it at home?
  • Layer your table with matching menus and place cards – it automatically elevates even the most simple tablescape. Personalise designs with each guest’s name for a chic touch.
  • Note down funny moments, kitchen disasters and songs that were playing during the meal in your hosting book – it’s a lovely way of recording the evening to look back on.
  • Stick instant photos inside too!
  • Scatter your table with blank notecards for guests to leave little notes and reviews of the eve.
  • You can stick them on your fridge to remember the night forever!
  • When filling out seating plans in your hosting book, remember you don’t just have to write guest names. Draw little figures, faces or emojis that remind you of them to make it more visual.
