One of my biggest passions is creative and well-dressed tables, because everything tastes better when the setting is beautiful. Some hosts do not give the same importance to tableware or table linen than to flowers o centerpieces, and this can be a mistake because nice glassware, original cutlery or a special tablecloth will complete the ensemble and will result in a surprise effect that everybody will remember. Furthermore, it may become a conversation piece that helps breaking the ice among guests.
Blue tables for summer
It may seem obvious that blue is the summer color par excellence, but how would you decorate a table with Mediterranean style without using the typical nautical elements? I have fallen in love with this proposal of painted dishes, macramé, copper cutlery and blue glassware from Cañigueral Mesas con Esencia.
Elegant black tables
Black color doesn’t have to be gloomy or Goth if you select the appropriate pieces and combine them with more classical elements that break with the toughness of this color. A clear example is this table composed of black dishes with gold border and cutlery half black and half silver, which has been modernized with marble texture and softened with the pink color of the stone and the fineness of the transparent crystal wineglasses.
We love tulle in dresses and as a decorative element, but it is less usual finding it as a tablecloth. If you want to give an ethereal and romantic impression to the table, try with this material.
I am a fan of Scandinavian decoration and, even if I know it is daring to decorate a celebration table with such restrained styled tableware, I believe the result would be very sassy and elegant for a chic urban environment. Textures would make the difference and the festive touch can be achieved with gold cutlery or refined glassware.
As you see, you can amaze your guests in a thousand ways and one of them can be the tableware.
