The holiday season is coming. We are counting days to the end of the year, where Christmas and New Year is happening. This is the time when family and friends gather around and the time to catch up with them.
You could do anything for your holiday, whether go on a trip or gather with your big family in one of your relative’s house. Most people gather around with their family, especially for Christmas. The activity that people absolutely do is having a dinner together.
When you have people coming over to your house, of course, you want your house to look organized, beautiful to look at, and make people comfy about being in your house. One of the thing that you could do to make it happened is by decorating it.
Since the dinner part is one of the important things to do when it’s holiday season, then decorating your kitchen, especially the dinner table or tabletop where your guest will be eating, is quite an important thing to do. When the table is well organized and well decorated, then it will make you and your guest’s appetite rises.
One of the most important materials to really get the perfect result is a good dinner table. I always think that a perfectly crafted wooden table is always a good choice. If you don’t have one, it’s okay, you could always use what you have. But, if you want to have a wooden table you could either buy it or you could make it yourself. When you want to make it yourself, take a note that you only do it if you really want it, if you have the time and money, and of course if you have tools like a wood router which is quite essential in making this.
The first thing to start is with table linen. This is like the first layer after your table. There are a lot of patterns, designs, sizes, and prices, of a table linen. The functions of a table linen are to protect the table from any scratches or stains, and of course, to give the table more aesthetic aspect.
You could buy a table linen that cover the whole dining table until it touches the floor or a table linen that hangs over the table. A table linen that touches the floor would give more protection over spills but would be pretty hard to wash it. Meanwhile, a table linen that hangs over is the most common that people used.
There is also a table linen that is a rectangle shaped so it only lay on the middle of the table. This will kind of like gives you the line between where to eat and where to put all the dishes. Also a great touch to your dining table.
The second thing is about the dinnerware, such as plates, bowls, mugs, etc. A unique and beautiful dinnerware have always been a great attraction to people’s eyes. Usually, people use fine china but actually you could use anything you want since there are a lot of dinnerware choices out there.
The third thing is about the flatware, such as spoons, forks, knives, etc. Just like the dinnerware, a unique and beautiful shaped flatware will always be a great attention to your guests. Maybe you could serve your great food with not just your ordinary silverware spoons and fork, because the dinnerware also comes with other colors and other beautifully curved shaped rather than just a straight dinnerware.
The fourth thing is about the glassware. Whether you serve your guests with water or when it’s come for the wine time, a unique shaped of the glass would always be the centre of attention. The most important thing of these glasses is it has to be in a shape that the people holding it feels comfortable. A unique glass which are famous nowadays is the mason jars.
The fifth thing is about the serve ware. This is the time that you could go crazy. Serve ware is the things that you use to serve your food. The more unique it is, the more people would be interested in, and it would be more photogenic. You could use a tray, a cake stand, or even a cutting board since it’s very hype right now. Seriously, the choices are endless.
Lastly, is about the additional decoration. You could put like flowers and candles to make your table more beautiful. You could even put some decoration lights if it’s possible.
Gather up with your family on holiday is a very important occasions. It became more important if they gather at your house. Besides making them comfortable while in your house, serving them great foods, it’s also important to decorate your house to please the guests. Sometimes you also need to impress your family, right?
