Whether you want to create a vibrant, colorful, or subtle, sophisticated table setting, we have something for table setting for everyone.
Choose a theme and color palette!
The first step to creating a festive table setting is to choose a theme and colour palette that matches the mood and tone of your celebration. You can either go for a monochromatic scheme or a contrast scheme, depending on your preference and the type of occasion. For example, if you are celebrating Raksha Bandhan, the festival of sibling love, you can opt for a pastel and floral colour palette such as pink, peach, lavender, and mint. You can also add some delicate and feminine touches with lace or pearls.
Dress up your table with linen and runners!
The next step is to dress up your table with linen and runners that complement your theme and colour palette. Linen is a versatile and beautiful material that adds texture and softness to your table. You can either use a table runner such as the sapphire and mellow or placemats to cover your table surface such as lienzo and statico. Leaving the table bare to showcase its natural beauty is another option of individual preference.
For illustration, if you are celebrating an occasion or having a get together, you can use our collection of linen products that feature motifs and elegant colors. such as lemon, pink, blue, and orange. You can use our lienzo runner or tablecloth to cover your entire table or our classic stripes placemats to create individual settings for each guest.
Select serveware that suits your menu!
The third step is to select serveware that suits your menu and enhances the presentation of your food. Serveware includes plates, bowls, platters, trays, dishes, spoons, forks, knives, napkins, etc. You can either use matching sets or mix and match different styles depending on your preference and the type of cuisine for your tavle setting.
For instance, if you are celebrating Raksha Bandhan, you can use our orbis collection of serveware that features elegant shapes and soothing colors. You can also use our midnight mango collection to serve your main course or our Ceramic dessert plates to serve your sweet treats. Amber love and fiore are the perfect choice of serving bowls to serve your soups or salads.
Add some décor and accessories to complete the look!
The final step is to add some décor and accessories to complete the look and create a festive atmosphere. Décor and accessories include candles, flowers, plants, vases, lanterns, coasters, etc. You can use them to add some color, light, fragrance, or personality to your table.
If you are organizing a dinner party this festive season, you can use our candle collection of décor and accessories that features handcrafted candle holders and candle stands such as gaiyo candle stand. They are made from natural soy wax and cotton wicks and are infused with essential oils which are ideal for creating a warm and cozy ambiance and adding some aroma to your table. Using candle jars to create a soft glow or the fleur d’or candle stands to create an effect on the table setting can never go wrong.
