There are many effective ways to create a table setting that is sure to impress even the pickiest of guests, some such tips are:
Many people tend to enjoy classic looking themes, and because of this, sometimes it’s the best option for a table setting. Dressing tables are sometimes best done by those with a flair for vintage, classic themes. Such themes include colors like gold and the use of doilies and candles. Adding touches of old age elegance are usually always very well received by those who will judge your table setting. To find some more vintage looking pieces, it may be worth looking at thrift shops and other such stores that may be selling older pieces. You may also be able to find some great classic looking pieces online as well.
Find a Theme
Sometimes a theme is best when it comes to beautiful table settings. This is especially true with the holiday season upon us. Many people enjoy setting their table to match the season or the holiday that is being observed. For instance, during Christmas time,many people may find themselves setting their table in red, or they’ll include Christmas things, such as figurines, winter flowers and more. In summer, many find that lighter colors are preferred with bright, healthy flowers as a centerpiece. Remember to never overcrowd your table, but to allow each piece to speak for itself.
Get a Nicer Table
Sometimes the main thing standing in between you and a very well dressed table is the table itself. Cheap looking and unattractive tables are hard to make look nice, and that’s because they aren’t nice. If you really want to impress, you may want to invest in a nicer table. For instance, a table made of solid wood, especially a graded cherry wood, is sure to impress much more than that plastic abomination you picked up on discount from Tesco. If you really want to be proud of your table dressing, you’ll want to buy a table that is worthy of such dressing, to begin with.
Finding The Center
Most well-dressed tables have a common piece, and that’s the centerpiece. A well-chosen centerpiece is often the missing link and the bridge to a poorly dressed table to a nicer one. Be sure to take some time in deciding on the proper centerpiece. Study what would look best on your table and with the theme or design you most want to do. Once you have some of those things figured out, you may have to go through a few different centerpieces before settling on the perfect one, though it will be well worth the time and money spent doing so.
There are many ways that one could create a beautiful table setting, and with the holiday season among us, it may be the perfect time to try. You may have to try out a few different designs before finding one that you enjoy most. Take some time and put some thought into your table dressing, because others are sure to notice. Most importantly, enjoy a job well done and be proud of your work.
