This winter’s scene is set with a fresh direction, gradually raising our hopes that the Corona era will become a thing of the past. What we need is to come back together unworried and create memories around a table; dining has always been (even with the covid recess) a perfect choice.
A usual winter fête entails the inclusion of fun dinnerware and beloved recipes to match. We aim to propose a tablespace that would reflect the qualities of the season by mixing and matching decorative elements, all available in our collection. With an eccentric aesthetic in mind, you can design an effortlessly remarkable setup by incorporating your existing dinnerware with a host of decorative accents taken from the abnormal concept’s selection. Coming ahead, the tried-and-true added decorative pieces you need to transform your usual dining into an elevated scene.
Whether you’re traveling for hours to get back to your family’s home for casual gatherings, or simply popping to the next neighborhood to your best friend’s apartment, you’d better arrive full-handed. You will probably grab your go-to wine bottle or frosted cakes, but there are way more surprising things to impress your host. Apart from the edible and drinkable choices, one could always bring in an adjustable and minimal choice of decorative items as a gesture of gratitude: a vase, a candle holder or even a funky photo frame.
Let your night flow and allow yourself to have a flair for the unexpected. Before that, turn the hectic preparation process into a ritual. Establish a color scheme that will compliment your choice of dinnerware, glasses, florals and decor at hand. One would hardly go wrong with a lively shade of blue (of course) or fancy metallic colors -a must-have texture that can work year-round. When it comes to tablescapes, choose something pop and contemporary; this will become a base that can easily adapt to a broad range of aesthetics.
Pour your favorite drink or fruit punch with a maximalist carafe. A sculptural piece will become an eye-catching addition to your table: a carafe inspired by earthly forms will complete any setting with its artsy appearance. Choose a hand-blown piece that its pattern and bold colors are unique; accompany it with some character glasses. Then, use some finely designed stainless-steel cutlery. Cutlery can offer a lot to the overall look of your table setting, adding character to your table. Choose a classic - refined design combined with a unique finish of the handles will stand out on every occasion.
If a bold color palette is not preferred, cooler shades can also steal the show: present a plethoric glass tray in a cool gray tone and use it as a serving platter for starters, cheese or other smaller dishes.
Throwing a dinner party is to selflessly host your favorite people and to provide them with good food and a safe space for fun discussions and exchange of ideas: a place where different opinions can be debated and impromptu dance moves are welcome.
Decorating a dinner table feels like you’re dressing it up: you can overdress it, you can underdress it or can accessorize it to be with the right amount of details just to fit right to your taste. This winter, get inspired by the art of mix and match: textures, colors and materials. Create knockout combos by pairing some unexpected pieces: dress up your napkins with braided rings, place your glasses onto some playful coasters to escape your decorative go-to picks and serve fresh pastry on an unorthodox platter that becomes a visual game changer.
Enhance your good mood by creating an uplifting atmosphere right before your guests’ arrival: light up some quality candles and add energy to your table. Complete the look with geometrical candle holders that will attract attention.
Before or after dinner, mix up a classic cocktail with booze your bar is already stocked with. Bring together shaken Martinis, old-school aperitifs or champagne. Extra tip: bourbon or cognac-based cocktails will be appreciated by your guests as they come in from the cold outside.
At dinner parties, creating a good mood is just as crucial as getting the menu right. That’s when music comes in, so don’t forget the playlist: create a chill but uplifting Dining-in Playlist on Spotify that combines classic songs with easy listening or contemporary tunes - just to get us out of the food coma.Night’s up
The idea is simple, dinner parties are not to display wealth rather than to share abundance: Coronavirus taught us well that we want our people and guests to eat good but their pleasure and company is what fills up our homes – although we still give the bathroom a deep cleaning, fill up the vases with fresh flowers and light up our best candle sticks. Undoubtedly, etiquette details stand the tests of time.
Etiquette and food’s aside, use your good mood to get the night going in a way that is personal and so memorable that your guests come up to you with the perfect ego-stroking question for any host: “when are we gathering up again?”
