Style Guide: Set up your Dining Table
Your dining table is the heart of your home. It is where you enjoy your meals, bond with family and celebrate feasts with your friends. It is indeed a place where memories are made, and these moments need nothing but the best. Enhancing your dining table can add so much to these moments. Just a few things put together can make the table look beautiful.
Here, we give you a step-by-step method to make the table decorating experience a breeze for you:
1. Lay the Linens
Start off by laying your linens. A table cloth makes a good base. Choose something with cotton, linen or flax fabrics as they are easy to wash and maintain later. To add a touch of craft, you can always pick something embroidered or printed, something like the Conserva Table Cloth. Make sure that your table cloth is of a size that fits your dining table.
If your table already has a marble or glass top that you do not wish to cover with a large cloth, a table runner is a great alternative to provide a crafty base.
And of course, don’t forget to place coordinating placemats and napkins to go with your base cloth!
2. Place the Centerpiece
Placing a center piece on your dining table gives visual focus and height variety to your table. Besides, playing with textures and finishes gives a fresh break to your otherwise coordinated table. Go creative with this one!
Vases with fresh (or faux) flowers, a candle stand with a fragrant candle or even sculptural decor works wonders in adding some height and beauty for your special gatherings. To spruce it up further, spread some pebbles or stones to give a candid natural vibe.
3. Set the Crockery
This is hands-down the highlight of your dining setup. An ideal dinnerware coordinates with your table linen. Here, the Emerald Palace Bone China Dinnerware subtly coordinates with the green embroidered highlights on the table cloth. While colour coordinates are sure to look great on your tablescape, you can always play with contrasting textures and colour tones as long as the colours look good in the end!
4. Set an Ambience
The ambience you set is the most definitive element of your dining experience. By ambience, we are hinting at what feeds the senses – lighting, music, aromas, colours. Set the right lighting in your dining room so that your table really shines out. Curate a soft song playlist that feeds your conversations. Place fragrant candles on your dining to add a touch of warmth and aroma, uplifting the mood around the table almost instantly! Soft base notes of fragrances like lavender, cinnamon or cedarwood work wonders to create an aromatic ambience.
Voila! Your table is set. This is as easy as it gets!
