the set dining table and chairs is the stage for the biggest productions that we can promote indoors, the meals. Due to the respect and pleasure we feel regarding these moments, we try to organize this set, whenever necessary, to welcome friends and family. And, on a daily basis, it is also necessary to ensure that this part of the property remains suitably attractive.
The following text presents some ideas for decorating a dining table. Check out.
This is an alternative that is valid both for times to serve meals and for breaks. We can use natural and artificial flower arrangements as a centerpiece for dinner.
Remembering that the tallest pieces should be avoided for times when there are people sitting at the table, as this could hinder your vision and discourage interaction between everyone.
We can choose colorful flowers of different species for these moments of meetings and especially for parties at home, in a fresher and more natural tone.
And these same arrangements can present small details of dry branches and even berries, especially if the table is close to the kitchen. Flowers and candles are also a good wedding. And you can “link” the color palette of this arrangement with the rest of the ambient decor.
At other times, the intention may be contrary, to maintain the sobriety of the environment. In this case, the decoration of the dining table would only serve to make the environment more sophisticated.
In this line, the green boxwoods in small transparent, metallic, wooden or in neutral tones would complement a clean and modern decor in a very elegant way. In fact, two equal arrangements would make the scenario more balanced.
These small pots with boxwoods are perfect for all hours. However, if on a daily basis you want to have a more impressive decoration on the dinner table, we propose something much bigger and with texture. For example, a large black vase with a fern as the centerpiece.
This topic has to do with those small aquatic arrangements or open terrariums that are also used as a centerpiece for dining tables.
They are mounted inside transparent containers in the form of glass globes, with small boxwoods or flower arrangements inside. And they can also contribute to highly sophisticated scenarios, being a super different and creative alternative for decoration.
There is also another option for a very modern and even futuristic look, which are the glass vases decorated with green leaves and dry branches.
Those arrangements mounted in taller containers would only serve for nightly parties or moments with no meals served. The lower ones, being also made of glass, make it easier to see – the long ones are perfect for rectangular tables. And their mix is also amazing.
Towels and sousplats
Tablecloths and sousplats or placemats are more decorative accessories used over dining tables.
They would serve to protect the furniture, preventing plates, platters and pans resting on its surface from damaging the plate in any way. And, before and after meals, you can leave a tablecloth or table rail in place with one of the centerpiece arrangements we suggested earlier.
Remember: all these pieces must make sense with the surrounding elements, with the proposed theme for the meeting and with the meal time served, if applicable. And if these items were still handcrafted by you, the room’s decor will take on an even more special meaning.
In everyday life, on this tablecloth or table rail, you can leave it to enhance the decor of the dining room and, at the same time, hold the fabric in place. It can be a very colorful container, giving a very fun touch to the composition.
It can be made of ceramic, glass, wood or chrome metal. And it’s better that it has a simpler design, so it can be combined with fruits, seed balls, and more.
Dishes, towels and napkins
For meal times, in addition to the centerpiece and tablecloth or sousplats, we should also count on the dinnerware and napkins.
See in the images below how these items can make a difference in dining room decorations – more for their colors and shapes than for their presence. And when it comes to fabric napkins, they can be tied with mini arrangements – a reduction of the centerpiece itself.
