A Tasteful Table Setting

Are you hosting your first gathering for friends and family? No worries, here are a few ways to make your dinner table as pretty as the meal you'll be cooking up. The recipe for a tasteful table setting requires few ingredients, the most important being the holiday spirit.

INGREDIENTS (6 - 8 PERSONS)
1 TABLECLOTH OR RUNNER
6 - 8 NAPKINS
6 - 8 PLACEMATS
FLATWARE TO GO WITH THE MENU
RUSTIC DINNERWARE
MIX OF GLASSES
COASTERS
CANDLES AND FRESH FLOWERS AFTER TASTE

INSTRUCTIONS

Frame your masterpiece
Go with a tablecloth that’ll make the delicious meals you labored overlook great.

Mix and match
Scrap paper napkins and opt for real napkins in a different pattern and color than your placemat and tablecloth.

Rule of thumb
Use the upper half of your thumb as a measurement when placing them from the end of the table. Then place the glasses and flatware accordingly and in line with each other. Another handy trick is to hold your hands up, touch the tip of your left-hand forefinger with the tip of your left-hand thumb to make a lowercase ‘b.’ Do the same with the tip of your right-hand forefinger and thumb to make a lowercase ‘d.’ This trick reminds you that “bread and butter” go to the left and “drinks” to the right.

Details with a sprinkle of holiday spirit
Unique embroidered napkins with short holiday messages are the artifacts you need to spread the holiday joy.

Utensils 101
When setting the table, don't place utensils you won't be using. No salad, no salad fork. Do, however, place the flatware in the order of use, from the outside in. Forks go to the left of the plate and napkins to the left of them. Knives (blades facing the plate) and spoons go to the right. A glass for your beverage always goes above the knife.

Greens everywhere
Add a little green where you can. In the water bottle, on the plate, and in pots on the table.
Herbs are perfect for decoration and if guests want to add some flavor to their food or drinks. Choose herbs or greens that aren’t known to many. They function as a conversation starter and adding an educational flair to your dinner.
Avoid big centerpieces
An elaborate centerpiece can sometimes come off as too showy. It can even ruin a pleasant dinner because it gets in the way of your guests sitting across from each other. So keep the big decorations off the table.

Make it easy for yourself
Someone wants another beer again? Spare yourself the trouble of a run to the kitchen. Place the beverages in baskets close to the table (a bag with ice in the bottom keeps them cold). When in the kitchen, save your outfit from stains with a nice apron. Our Icons Jeans Apron has pockets that may function as extra hands.
Lots of candles for the ambiance
Most of us remember to put candles on the dining table. But don't forget larger lanterns standing on the floor, hanging from the trees, or on the railings.
Make your guests comfortable
We all know how a hard chair or a chilly breeze can ruin a dinner experience. Adding soft cushions for back support and cozy throws and blankets on each chair will guarantee you a hostess of the year award.

Good luck!
