When Clare Harris, 58, could not find any stylish table decorations, she decided to design and sell her own. Talking Tables was launched in 1999, just in time for the millennium celebrations, and now boasts customers including John Lewis, Paperchase and Selfridges. The London firm’s range includes items for weddings, children’s parties and celebrations such as Valentine’s Day. A subsidiary in the US servicing clients including Walmart, Target and Party City helped boost exports to £4.7m last year.
