Table Art Diaries: A Day in the Life of Clare Martin

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

Table Art Diaries: Welcome to the whirlwind world of Clare Martin, the ultimate multitasker and the powerhouse behind the scenes at Table Art. Strap in and join us for a rollercoaster ride through Clare’s day, where chaos meets camaraderie and every moment is an adventure.

Picture this: the alarm blares, and Clare rolls out of bed, ready to tackle another day at the helm of Table Art. After a quick shower to wash away the cobwebs, she hops into the van with her partner in crime, MD Gary, for the daily commute to the unit. With coffee in hand and tunes blasting, they’re a dynamic duo ready to take on the day.


First stop: the office. As the early birds, Clare and Gary waste no time in firing up the kettle and booting up the computer. But before Clare can even take a sip of her brew, her inbox is flooded with emails ranging from quote requests to invoices. It’s a digital jungle out there, but Clare navigates it with finesse, tackling each task with her trademark efficiency.

But let’s talk about the elephant in the room – or rather, the receipts. Ah, yes, the bane of Clare’s existence. Collecting event receipts from the team is like herding cats, but Clare is determined to wrangle every last penny, even if it means chasing Gary and the crew around like a modern-day Robin Hood.

With paperwork sorted (mostly), Clare dives into her favorite part of the day: crew allocation. It’s like a giant jigsaw puzzle, with each piece representing a crew member’s preferences, skills, and availability. But Clare loves a challenge, and there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the puzzle pieces fall into place.

As the morning wears on, the office door becomes a revolving door, with staff members popping in to debrief Clare on the previous night’s events. Most of the time, things go off without a hitch – but occasionally, there’s a rogue guest who decides to take a centerpiece for a walkabout. Cue Clare, the ultimate detective, tracking down missing table decor like it’s her own personal treasure hunt.


Lunchtime rolls around, and it’s a welcome break from the morning madness. Clare joins the gang in the office kitchen, where the yellow sofa is already packed with warehouse staff. It’s like a scene from a sitcom, with Herbie dishing out dating advice like he’s a love guru, and Ashley pitching his latest “get-rich-quick” scheme, Del Boy style.

Sandwiches are devoured, and gossip flies faster than you can say “extra mayo.” From Herbie’s dating escapades to Ashley’s harebrained schemes, there’s never a dull moment around the lunch table. Amidst the laughter and banter, Clare feels grateful for these moments of camaraderie – they’re the glue that holds the team together, even on the craziest of days.

So here’s to lunchtime shenanigans and the bonds that make the chaos worthwhile. After all, what’s a day at Table Art without a little fun and gossip thrown into the mix?

The afternoon brings a return to the grindstone, as Clare tackles the never-ending task of invoicing. But even as she wades through a sea of numbers, her spirits remain high – after all, she’s a pro at this invoicing game, and nothing can slow her down.

But just when Clare thinks she’s done for the day, there’s always one last task waiting in the wings. Today, it’s wrapping light boxes for a client who wants branded wraps. A job that requires Clare’s expert touch and lightning-fast reflexes. But she’s not one to back down from a challenge, and before long, the light boxes are wrapped, packed, and ready to go.
