Elegant table settings
A dining table layout is one of the most components of any dining room. Therefore making sure that the dining table is done up with elegant settings is very important. It’s beauty immediately gets the attention of your guests and have them talk even long after the party is over.
Start your setting by laying a beautiful tablecloth. Have your table cover in accordance to the shape of your table. For example you can spread 90 tablecloth round for your round dining table. Next, place table mats with an approximate distance of half an inch from the edge of the table. Now place your elegant dinner plates with a distance of an inch from the edge of the table. Now, lay your flatware parallel to the plate with forks on the left and the knife and spoon on the right side. Place the butter knife above the forks. Have your wine glasses and the water glasses placed above the knife and spoon. You can now start decorating your table.
Napkins make an important element to add elegance to the entire milieu. Several beautiful printed napkins in geometric, floral or contemporary prints can be availed in accordance to the color and theme of the party. For example, you can have peacock napkins and plates for a touch of class to your dining room. You can have them complementing with your table clothes, placemats and table runners for the perfect look.
Finally, add a centerpiece to give that wonderful touch. An exciting, beautiful centerpiece could be anything like be a striking fruit bowl, vase of flowers or even scented candles. Alternatively, you can also place a candelabra. Make use of attractive candle holders with short pillar candles for an informal dining. A transparent bowl with colorful floating candle also makes for a great centerpiece.
When considering all of the above, I would recommend that you have a theme in mind. It not only ties up the whole room together, but also is an easy way to create the perfect table setting.
