Let’s begin with STYLISH ACCESSORIES for your dinner table. The luxury of space is often lost in metro cities; hence using accent pieces is one of your best bets for classy dining occasions.

TABLERUNNERS pose as a sophisticated element to dining tables. One way to choose these could be complementing colours or patterns with either your napkins or the fabric on your furnishings. However, it is imperative to note that if you’re choosing a patterned tablecloth, then your dinner set must be simple and mono-coloured, and vice versa.

FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS could add an elegant touch to your dinner table, but only if they’re done wisely. For instance, keep the length of the stems short in order to avoid obstructing anybody’s vision at a social occasion, and steer clear from fragrant flowers to avoid mixing the aroma of your food with the scent of flowers. Use a similar concept if you’re more of a CANDLELIGHT than ‘flower’ person!

You could go for a simple and minimalistic décor by using ornate NAPKIN RINGS! The rings could match with your crockery, calling for a luxuriant dinner set as well.

For those who aren’t followers of pastel or monochromatic rooms, we’ve got a delightful tip for you too! Maybe you could use CONTRASTING COLOURS to release a vibrant feel. For instance, GEOMETRIC patterns on your crockery and vases could make your scene more fun and enthusiastic.

Now for those who are blessed with enormous bungalows – in addition to the above, exploit the luxury of your VIEW. Placing your dining table next to a window not only allows cool breeze but also presents your guests with the opportunity to enjoy their food with a view. Imagine a grand table with aromatic food laid beside a floor-to-ceiling window with lush curtains!
