Despite it being an intimate celebration or a table for two, setting the scene for the right occasion doesn’t have to be over the top to feel special.
1. Bringing the outdoors inside
If you have windows in your dining area, hanging wreaths in the middle would set the scene. This would bring a different dimension to your space, helping to find a unique way to incorporate greenery into seasonal looks.
2. Using simple yet functional centre pieces
Using eye-catching but functional serving pieces like breadboards, pitchers or serving trays not only saves space but also creates a more natural feeling.
3. Layering textiles and linens
Placemats could help to ground the look, where layering dishware on top as well as a pretty folded napkin would create a fool-proof table setting.
3. Incorporating unique detailing
Finishing touches can be added in with tapered candles, elevated napkin rings or even a simple festive branch or ornament; helping to bring a more festive look to life.
