Mistakes you should not do when setting up your table August 11, 2017 – Posted in: Blog

Eating is more enjoyable if the way you serve when setting up your table is elegant, regular and careful.

But often some details  do not give the right impression.

Do not overflow your table

Avoid anything excessive on the table. Avoid excessive dishes, especially where the table is small.

Adjust the menu

Everything should be in function of what you have cooked. Try to have elements of what you have prepared on the table, eg. If you have cooked sea products, try adding any detail that reminds the sea.

                                                                                  Be careful with the center of the table

Do not place too much flowers. It would not be comfortable for the guests because they would have difficulty communicating with each other.

                                                                     Put the proper napkin

                                                                                          Add candles and flowers

(La Classica Contura Collection: VILLEROY & BOCH LA CLASSICA CONTURA SAUCER BASE (shop now); VILLEROY&BOCH LA CLASSICA CONTURA DINNER/FLAT PLATE (shop now); VILLEROY&BOCH ROYAL BUFFET PLATE (shop now); VILLEROY&BOCH LA CLASSICA CONTURA ESPRESSO CUP & SAUCER (shop now); VILLEROY & BOCH LA CLASSICA CONTURA TEA CUP (shop now))

This would make the environment more friendly and more welcoming to enjoy a dinner between friends. But beware, everything with measure.
