Hone your dinner party hosting skills with these tips and picks from Bits & Pieces

Dubai, UAE, February 18, 2018:  Hosting the perfect dinner party can be stressful. From picking the perfect menu, to mastering the right table setting there is a lot to think about if you want to put together a perfect dinner party at home. 

And did you kow that setting a nice table is one of the most important elements of hosting a dinner party? Not only does the table setting literally set the scene for the evening ahead, it can affect your enjoyment of the meal which can even affect how well your guests digest their food! So, after putting in the effort involved in thoughtful menu planning and hours spent in the kitchen preparing, make sure you follow these three easy steps from Bits & Pieces, to ensure you create the most perfect table setting: 

Incorporate your own personal style

Mixing your basic table wear with pops of your favourite colours, patterns or textures in the best way create a beautiful table setting without having to focus to heavily on a theme. Rich pigment colours, metallic accents and tropical prints are all big trends for 2018 so incorporating these elements will give your table that modern edge. 

Pick an inspiration piece for your table

Choose an object for your table that will give it that wow factor. It may be a botanical print, a fabulous set of bold coloured dishes, or some textured stemware. Whatever your inspiration piece, make it the focal point and the table and design everything else around it. 

Layer dishes with Chargers and mix patterns and colours 

For the ultimate dinner party place setting, start with a charger, then layer a classic white dinner plate as a blank canvas. Next place a dessert plate on top, and mix and match your prints and colours to really make the whole setting pop.
