With the festive season fast approaching, now is the perfect time to begin planning your table setting for your upcoming celebrations. Whether you’re hosting a laid-back lunch or an elegant banquet dinner, we have the expert styling tips to help you create a memorable table setting that is unique to your personal style.
CHOOSE YOUR FESTIVE COLOURS
Begin by choosing a colour scheme for your table setting. For example, if you’re looking to create an effortless coastal look, you may like to incorporate tableware in whites, blues and greens. Your colour scheme will help you choose the right pieces while saving you time planning your upcoming gathering.
LAYERS AND LEVELS
With your colour scheme chosen, it’s time to create an eye-catching table setting with layers and levels. Begin by placing down your table linen, then you can start to layer your tableware, glassware and napkins. To give your table setting a sense of dimension, try to add decorative elements in various heights, such as candles and floral arrangements. This will draw your eye around the table and create an abundant and inviting dining space.
The next step in styling the perfect festive spread is to bring your table to life with a touch of greenery. You may like to bunch together foliage as a focal point on the table or tie some greenery in with your napkins to bring the look together and delight your guests.
Our favourite way to surprise guests is by including a personalised touch. A beautiful way to include this is with hand-written place cards, a menu with their name written in calligraphy at the top or a small festive gift for them to take home.
