Decorating your dining table according to a theme not only creates an ambience but also makes eating with family and friends a relaxing and memorable experience.. So if you inviting friends or just having dinner with family, doing small changes to the decor of the table can change your mood ..
Recently I had some friends over for a Indian dinner...obviously the table decor had a Indian theme..I had asked my guest to wear something Indian.. I searched my house for the stuff that I can use to decorate according to the theme..
To drape my table I used one of my never used dupatta..(click here to see more info.)...Wikipedia calls it a long multi purpose scarf for some reason right;) well..now it is assigned to work as a table cloth forever.. I love its color and the golden embroidered border..
As the centerpiece I used a wooden round tray with a big fragrant candle and some pebbles in it.. I coiled lotus flower and its leaf around the candle.. Lined up some diyas( Indian style candles) in the center..
I used silk golden placemats... For the men I kept a clay leaf made by me sometime back and for the ladies I used a lotus candle ...
Polished the crystal and the cutlery till I could see my face in it..hahaha.....Warmed up the curries and the bread...and talked,wined, laughed and we didn't even know when the evening ended...
I loved setting the table..doing the table presentation..I want to do it again..This time I am thinking of sea/ beach theme..!!
