Stunning Table Settings for the Festive Season
With the end of the year fast approaching, December is certainly a month made for celebrations. From UAE National Day to New Year’s Eve, there are so many occasions and opportunities for us to gather friends and family together and spread joy whilst we make unforgettable memories. You might find yourself entertaining clients or colleagues, hosting visitors from out of town or putting on a show for loved ones on Christmas Day. Whatever the reason, the opportunity to spend quality time with those we treasure most is one of life’s most precious gifts; which is why you know you need to do it in style!
To help you create the perfect table setting this festive season we have put together some of our most exquisite home accessories, from carving sets to centrepieces, so that you can incorporate the right theme for your event. In honour of all of the glittering excitement and sparkling anticipation, we have divided our selection into glamorous gold and stunning silver. That way, whether you are treating colleagues or planning a sophisticated New Year’s bash, you won’t be unprepared to make a splash with your guests.
There is something so regal and celebratory about gold. Not only does it have a long tradition in entertaining across several cultures, it has a grandiose quality that is hard to match. When it comes to the design of your dining table, including the cutlery and serveware, you need to make sure to add the right amount and pair it with complimentary tones in order to create the perfect ambiance. For our gold festive season look, we suggest choosing ornate pieces that appear both delicate and decadent all at once. Top picks include the unique napkin holders from Blue Leaves, the eye-catching pineapple from Bloomingville and the luxurious serving tray from Platex. It is the ideal concept to pair with crisp white linens or natural hues as well as offering a delightful balance to festive inspired plants, like fir branches, milestone or lavender.
Silver is the perfect choice for those looking for a bit of sparkle during the festive season. It is sophisticated and elegant, as well as the ideal option to incorporate some drama into your soiree. Thanks to its delicate tones, you can easily pair silver glassware or dinnerware sets with bold table clothes in royal blue or vivacious napkins in a rich shade of red. You can’t skip the lighting either, silver being the perfect base on which to enhance the reflectiveness of warming candles, for which the Klong Constella Candle Holder would be ideal. You can also keep drinks cool and looking majestic in the Aulica ice bucket, before wowing your guests with the Aulica Origami stem glasses.
Whatever your plans are this festive season, we hope you have a wonderful time filled with happy faces and delicious food.
