How to enhance your dining experience
The dining room isn’t just a place where we eat, it’s about much more than that. The dining room is a place of community and gathering, a place where relationship and family bonds are forged and strengthened. For that reason we should do everything in our power to enhance the dining experience to the best possible level. This blog post is going to show you a few simple things you can do to create the type of set and setting that will really make your dining room a wonderful place to break bread with the loved and trusted ones in your life.
The Dining Table
Make no mistake about it, the dining table is the centerpiece of your dining room, the one item that the eye will be immediately drawn to. In a beautiful marriage of form and function, this is also obviously the most important item when it comes to actually sitting down and eating some of that delicious cuisine. It’s a great idea then to really make your dining table a unique item, and fun way to do that is to experiment with color and shape. An oval dining table white for example is an unusual choice for several reasons: dining tables are usually boring old rectangles, and dining tables are usually black or brown. A white oval is going to be an immediate standout.
It’s a well known fact among professional chefs that the way food is served and presented often has an enormous positive (or negative!) effect on the way it is received. If you want to make a great impression with your entrees, you’ll want to serve your food in a compelling fashion. Sticking with the white theme of today’s post, we recommend trying out some ivory fleur de lis dinnerware - the fleur de lis is an example of a fun detail that will give an ornamental touch to your meal.
