When the real hassle about the food has been resolved, the next issue pops-up. How to serve it? Als you probably want to splurge a little, as it’s a special event, you’re using your finest dishes and tableware. I’m showing you a couple of options. Just keep it save, keep it simple.
This table setting has the right amount of gold in it, without looking overdone. Combined with the little greenery, the nuts and all the white, this looks like a perfect setting. Gold is just a colour that screams Christmas to me, thus making it almost irreplaceable on the table.
Traditional red and green, but in a calm and a not-overdone way.
The huge ornament looks stunning on a table, but when gourmet-ing, fonduing or placing the dinner on the table, there is seriously no space for it! Maybe it’s nice when having a drink before or after the meal, but then you need to displace it multiple times. Would you really do that, when having to think about the food?
The image above shows a beautiful setting, minimalistic but cosy and special. I don’t like the fact of arranged seating. Everyone who’s invited is equally loved and I want them all to feel at home, thus arranged seating is a no go for me, especially at Christmas.
As we all love to eat bread with almost anything, I like the idea of baking fresh bread before the meal and use them as table decor. This way, everyone has bread nearby and they’re able to eat whenever they want. Put garlic butter and cream cheese on the table and everyone is able to serve themselves.
Again, simple clean and minimalistic. Seems good enough!
Unlike the ornament on the table, this would be a great solution to add green and decorations without having no space left to put the food on. You just need to have a lamp like this..Sources: 1 – Stylizimo 2 – French Larkspur 3 – Simple Bites 4 – Style me Pretty 5 – Style me Pretty 6 – Style me Pretty 7 – Antique Home Design
