dining by {tabletop} design

Sparkling conversation and fabulous food are essential elements of a successful soiree. However, the tabletop should not be ignored in the party planning process, as it sets the tone for the evening and gives guests an instant taste of what is in store. Just pulling out a colorful tablecloth, special glassware and having the ambient lighting of tea lights makes a huge impact at a dinner party...
 (malachite tray from plantation design, kate spade accent plates, marimeko table cloth, spectra wine glasses from leif shop and handmade tealight holders from serena and lily)
Or keep the serving pieces and table top simple if the artistry of the food is something you wish to highlight...

(dvf dinnerware, lacquered cork tray from lille a shop, kim seybert brass croc placemat and tina frey resin champagne  bucket)
And it is always fun to trade everyday dinnerware and table decor with whimsical pieces for an evening just with the girls...
(feather tray from jayson home and garden, pink dinner napkins from high street market, table art eucalyptus napkin ring, jonathan adler rocks glass and bowl)
No matter your tabletop style, happy entertaining and have a lovely memorial day weekend!

Companies depend on name tags not only for customer service, but also for good human resource management in their various departments.
