As well as delicious food and drink, large gatherings and dinnertime occasions are made even more memorable by the smallest of details. If you're out to impress, it always pays to take the time to explore lots of different embellishments that can be brought to the dining table.
By fine-tuning your accessories and tableware equipment, you can begin to plan for a splendid dinner at any time of year. And with Christmas less than two months away, we thought it'd be a great idea to look at some tips for making the dinner table an eye-catching sight for everyone!
Bringing some cosy candlelight to the table creates a warm and welcoming ambiance. As a way to bring an inviting look to all dinners, it's a stylish way to showcase a friendly scene.
The above Arch Candle Holder, Brass from Ferm Living is a remarkable way to make a distinct impression at the dinner table. Baring all the specialised style and Scandinavian inspired design work that Ferm Living regularly employs, the candle holder makes a stunning addition to the dinner table.
The Avvento Candleholder offers another captivating possibility for the dining table. Created by Kähler and drawing on design work from Marianne Nielson, the candleholder collection is available in four different sizes and is a beautiful way to make a stunning centrepiece for your Christmas celebrations.
Every last detail of the dinner table is important when preparing for a dinner. All too often we can forget some of the smaller items. Something like drinks coasters can be easily overlooked. This would be a shame, as the artistry and design of these humble articles are a great way to show off an individual taste and style.
The Orla Kiely 60s Stem Coasters, Set of 4 certainly manages to do this. Effortlessly stylish and cool, the items make the most of the company's iconic pattern to provide a striking template for use on high-quality coasters. Always able to keep drinks glasses in perfect safety, the coasters are another way to create a strong impression when setting the dinner table.
Another important part of the dinner time preparations is making sure you have set out a collection of napkins. Not only valuable for catching any spills, the style and design of napkins brings a flair and creative sensibility to the table.
The above pack of 20 Roses napkins by Villa Collection is a beautifully elegant capturing of an artistic design. Perfect for providing an artistic style to the table, the napkins are 3 ply and offer resilient support to the table. The napkins are available in a wide variety of colours and are one more way to prepare for a memorable meal!
