Various factors have contributed to us as a nation moving our socialising back home rather than out on the town. This has meant a rise in the traditional dinner party instead of a meal out in a restaurant. However, there is now much more emphasis on the perfect dinner table than there once was. One way of creating the perfect dinner table is with some beautiful Denby tableware.
They say that we eat with our eyes first, so one factor that will help make the food look deliciously appetising is a great set of crockery. Dinner plates and other crockery should complement the food, each other, the rest of the table and the home décor so choose your dinner service accordingly. We have some beautiful ranges available such as Denby Azure and Imperial Blue. You’re sure to be able to find the right colour to stand out on your dinner table.
Choose your table cloth and napkins to contrast with and complement the dinner service. So, for example, if you have gone for a white range, a nice bright colour will be eye catching. Learn how to fold napkins into pretty shapes and consider a table runner for down the middle of the table to add a touch more style. It will also provide extra protection for hot dishes placed in the centre.
If you use a charger plate, there is no need for placemats, but otherwise these are advisable to protect your table and coasters are essential to avoid nasty glass rings on your tablecloth!
