Tip 1 – Adding a splash of color to the table is very simple just add brightly coloured napkins or napkin rings. As well as helping to enhance the tables looks of course the guests will find them useful. If you do opt for coloured napkins then avoid matching the table cloth to them but rather go for a simple white one.
Tip 2 – The other way to add colour to your dinner party table is place a flower piece in the centre. If you choose such a feature make sure that it doesn’t stand too high up as this will prevent guests on either side of the table from talking to each other. Of course you could spend time creating the centre piece for your table but if time is an issue then arrange for a local florist to create something remember to tell them what colours you are using so that they can select flowers to complement them.
Tip 3 – For those who want to create a more formal look to a dinner party table then candles should be used. You have a couple of options as to how these are placed. You can of course opt for placing candelabra in the centre of the table in which candles are placed. But if you want to create a more intimate feel to your party then placing small candles close to where everyone is sitting will be a good idea.
Tip 4 – You don’t need to go out and spend a lot on the linens for your dinner party you could offset your beautiful dinnerware set and Oneida flatware with a plain white bed sheet on to which a coloured table runner has been placed. Remember however to use other linen that is going to complement or match the table runner used.
We trust that you find the tips offered above when it comes to decorating your dinner party table useful, and so ensure that the look of your dinnerware set and Oneida flatware is further enhanced. So that all who have been invited to your soiree have a wonderful time.
