In the past, when the world wasn’t even in the wake of technological boom and there were no devices and gadgets to take over people’s free time and lives, there was always a chance for organising festivities, especially during season change. With spring on its way, it’s the perfect opportunity to break out of the routine and have technology hold the reins in your life. There’s always a reason to throw a party , you don’t have to wait for special occasions to come by because every day is special on its own. You’ve had your share of cooking and trying out new recipes, so why not prepare a dinner and surprise your loved ones and friends? You’ll enjoy a meal to your taste in good company.
However, there’s more to a successful party than just preparing enough mouthwatering food. Along with choosing the group of people adequately, making sure they would all get along, have something to talk about and prepare the menu accordingly in case of vegan or allergic guests, setting the table has to be your priority. To avoid any last-minute surprises, like napkins or cutlery missing, it’s best to begin with the preparations early. Considering tableware can help you with setting the tone of formality of the party as plates matter more than you think. Do your research, and you’ll be able to find the dinner plate that’s most suitable for your event in terms of size, shape and material and it goes well with the rest of the serveware. Serving trays, coffee cups and dessert plates also have to be looked into – you won’t want a crack to surprise you.
Learning a few tricks about how to decorate a dinner plate will earn you lots of praises and satisfied guests with full bellies so you can even be compared to a Michelin-starred restaurant chef . Bear in mind though, this means you open the gate to frequent dinner parties, more than you could have imagined, and end up being the preferred host. That’s the price you pay when you take every detail into account (not that you’ll be complaining, right?).
An event of the sort is perfect for letting your creativity run wild. Colours, patterns and textures can all be your helping tools but make sure they go well with the surrounding décor. The last thing you’d want is to create a cluttered look both physically and visually. Combining the tablecloth with the napkins or the colour of the plates and adding a decorating piece in a similar style will work wonders for the ambiance.
Staying organised will seem like a piece of cake when you make a list of all the ingredients you have to buy and the tableware items that should be bought or replaced. Following the above mentioned steps is sure to help you show off as the most welcoming host your guests could have. Have a blast and bon appétit!
