Set up a more formal or informal table? In or out of the house?
These are just a few questions that can guide you through planning and executing a perfect dinner. That way, you coordinate everything within a style idea you want to achieve!
Tips for getting the table ready for a romantic dinner
In the matter of decoration, there are some items and tips that can leave your dinner with the right romantic mood and that, in general, are super simple to make. There are some details that make all the difference!
Candlelight Dinner Ever !: One of the must-have items for romantic dinner parties. After all, candlelight dinner is hardly a synonym for romance without motives! The low candlelight lighting leaves the atmosphere more cozy and with that intimate atmosphere that couples so much need. That's why any kind of candle is worth, from the elongated to the chandeliers, the lowest candle holders in the glass style and even the thinnest ones that float on the water!
It's time to take out those special tableware from the cupboard: Ceramic, porcelain, crystal, silver or any other type of tableware and cutlery that have a special value or are reserved for celebrations deserve a space on your table, whether antique in your family for generations or new in modern design that you love.
Bet on small flower arrangements: Small arrangements replace large central table arrangements and can scatter across space in a straight line along the table or even irregularly, filling in the clearances. For this type of celebration, the most interesting of the small arrangements is that they do not cap the overall view of the table.
Cups to toast to the good moments past, present and future !: One of the most important items, whether with champagne, sparkling wine, wine or even water, a toast is always important in celebrations like these, so, leave the bowls already ready and positioned for a special toast!
