Designer Dining

The tableware that is used can have a significant effect on the overall presentation and enjoyment of the meal that you have prepared. There are occasions when paper napkins are appropriate but of course there are times when cloth napkins properly folded and presented are what is the best option for your meal.

To use an extreme example, think of a time when you have had a meal out and you are given a plastic knife and fork. Remember how the meal sits with you and tastes. You can have the same meal but have proper metal utensils and the meal is so much more attractive and tastier.

Here are some important aspects to consider when dressing a table for a meal. Firstly that all utensils are of the same style and are appropriate for the occasion. For example you may not dress the table in the same way for a theme party, a wedding a family occasion, a dinner party for friends or a children party.

At children's party it would be appropriate to have paper napkins and wipeable table cloths. The other end of the scale I would suggest is the wedding. Here you would want to show the importance of the occasion by using tableware that demonstrate the importance and significance of the occasion.

Happy and social times with friends are just as important for the consideration of table settings and table ware. Your creativity can really shine through and this will demonstrate your personal touch and feelings for the occasion.

Of course you can make every meal important in this way and there are some occasions that will allow you more scope. The question of colour and design of your tableware is a personal one and can be influenced by the particular event.

There are many valuable ideas available on many different media sites as well as simply asking your friends and family. You may have an idea of what you would like but talking with others may give you other ideas or enhance the ones you already have. Let your imagination flow and you will be surprised of where it may take you.

Once you have the theme or occasion planned then the time for enjoying your work will give you and your guests the pleasure of the effort put in to the planning of the event.

Then what is required is the planning of the next event. Don't forget to write down what you did last time and this way you can build up a portfolio of occasions and ideas of what will and won't work whilst you are in your planning stage.
