IKEA Ideas - Tips for a fantastic dinner party table setting

1. First thing to do is to find yourself a theme. It could be around vintage dinnerware, nature, anything you like really. What you’re after are things that match each other in color and/or character. For this one, Jenny’s drawn inspiration from winter with light calm colors, woolly socks and evergreen branches.

2. Then move on to your table top. Think about laying down a textile first and don’t be afraid to personalize each place setting with a greeting card or something fun from your theme (we’ve used branches). Just keep all your place settings similar for a stronger impact.

 

3. Think about under the table too. Rugs, cushions, or textiles on the table legs bring a big boost to your celebrations look. They can even be pretty whimsical. In this one, Jenny’s used thick winter socks for guests to continue on with our winter theme.

4. Decorating above the table helps make a super cozy and intimate celebration. We’ve used hanging lights and pine branches, but it could be flags, streamers or disco balls, just think about height so your guests can stand up ok.

5. Lastly, look at final touches. This can be the time to add candles or dim the lights, and check if you have room to fit your serving plates in too.
