Elegant Table Decorations
Visual Example Formal Table
I guess pictures do speak better than a thousand words so instead of trying to
describe every single look of elegant decorations, I thought it would be best to
illustrate with pictures .

Your Surroundings Influence the Atmosphere
Don’t have a balcony facing the sea? Try setting up your dinner party against your library as a backdrop.
The massive titles is sure to spark curiosity and encourage elegant conversation.
Stick to simple styles that will complement the variety and activity that the library already adorns.

Use Baby Colours
Setting for a tea party?
Or maybe breakfast with the girls or are you celebrating your little girl’s
birthday with grown-ups and in style? Select a beautiful pastel colour palette
to go against the green. Choose white porcelain little teapots, of bunnies,
birds, eggs that remind you of the books you read when you were a child.

Cookies and Milk
Though I prefer coffee, decaf for anytime after 6 pm
please. I love little wooden traps and glass jars. We definitely do not use them enough.
It is also great to use those little gift mugs of fine bone china that I’ve received as gift
over the years. I have so many and they do not match to the general house mugs but its great that
I can pull them out now.

Use your fine china, best silver and crystals
A very simple table decoration that can be used daily for family meals. Why do we
always save the best china and crystal ware for guests?
I should take out my finest silver and use them everyday.
I love the fine linen and the napkin ring. Photo credit: love yellow
Easy as Daisies!
Where I live, daisies are one of the most affordable flowers in the flower shop.
How pretty you can set your table with some easy to wash (and bleach) white table linen
and an ordinary glass made extraordinary when filled with daisies!
Add some white candles and white sugar bowls for variety.

Using Black For Elegance
Many cultures shy away from using black as their decoration but note how in this picture,
it is accented by hints of purple and then the focus is on the sparkling glassware!
Black is the perfect backdrop for shiny things.

I’ve always found printed plates not easy to work with but it is interesting how lace is worked in.
Add a few berries, flowers in the background and you’ll find your food interesting when eaten from a
plate which is really a work of art.
