Dress up your table and have a banquet for your household
Whether you are spending this time solo or accompanied by your household, we can bet that you are probably spending a fair amount of it either cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, or at the very least – eating.
As a DDW reader, we know that you like to surround yourself with the finer things. Although it is presently impossible to go out and enjoy the wondrously decadent locations you are used to; there is still a way to dine in luxury and we’re here to show you how.
Step one is to create the perfect tablescape or table dressing on your dining room table; a setting so idyllic that it is worthy of a whole new art form. Why? It has been scientifically proven that the environment in which we eat enhances our enjoyment of food and how we perceive flavours.
So – let’s get started: to begin with, you will need to plan a theme or colour palate to dress your table: this can be literally anything from the season (Spring?) to a colour combination (navy & white, for example) or anything else that inspires you.
Get creative and search your home for items to build your first tablescape with; use glassware, plates, plants, candles and quirky elements you might find and love. If you need anything else or fancy a change, check out: Etsy, Ebay, Wayfair and Amazon for some great inexpensive items to add to your collection or upscale it at Oka, The Conran Shop, Habitat, Harrods and Liberty London.
Here are some amazing Instagrams to follow for inspiration….
