Whether you’re having a big to-do or just making your regular evening dinner, the holiday’s are a great time to make your home feel special. The dining room is a great place to decorate because it is centralized and is used throughout the day. Here are some divine tips to making your dining room dazzle:
Set tone and aesthetics all at once. Candles provide a warm, wonderful ambiance. Real bees wax candles help purify the air in the room, while faux candles give the essence of room with convenience and safety in mind. Faux candles are a designers secret, because they can be put anywhere and quality ones can look and flicker like a real candle. These fake candles can be set to a timer, so when you come home from a long day at work and you can instantly be welcomed home to a soothing, glowing home.
Runnes and placemats:
Your table can be ready in a moments notice when it’s laid out with a beautiful runner and placemats. It makes a welcome and inviting touch to daily dining. Even in rooms which are only used for special occasion dining, it will lift the spirit in the room. It’s important to read the care instructions when deciding on the right runners and placemats. Avoid ones that can only be spot cleaned or dry cleaned, unless you absolutely love it and cannot live without it. Go for something that is easy to wash and care for, to keep them looking beautiful.
It’s a simple but important detail. Most people do not have matching serving pieces for their silverware. It adds a touch of elegance and sophistication, especially on special occasions. A mix mash of wood, silver, and plastic is never appreciated. Make an investment into a set that includes everything for a special dinner or your grand holiday gathering. It’ll help you keep your best foot forward.
While the holiday’s are the perfect time of year to show off your talents in entertaining, these tips on decorating your dining room will elevate your festive holiday meals. Always get the best quality you can afford and love what you buy!
