Stying Table – The everyday way.
We know that going out, brunching and dining out is not an everyday experience anymore. Setting up a homely table for ourselves and close friends or even kids is not a bad option. Isn’t it?
I am here, to talk everyday with you. Sharing three simple ideas to style your table. I love to repeat, recycle and mingle my things. You would get a glimpse of that over here.
Three simple tips to style your table with plants around – Candles every time. Meik Wiking has written in his book The Little Book of Hygge –
“No recipe for Hygge is complete without candles. “
Although Hygge is a Danish term, do you remember those cosy nights with power outages? When families used to sit together, beside us candles or kerosene lanterns always used to be on. From playing carrom board to Antakshari, how could we let the feeling go? Time to bring those practices back.
I have related to the term Hygge, because we have always done it, in true sense. So all the three set ups, that you will see here is with candles.
- The first set up is with candles on recycled bottles consisting twigs picked up from nature. Slipped them down with some water inside the bottles. They stayed that way for couple of days. I personally love floral table covers. Glass bottles, Candle holder, Mason jars are neutralising the bold prints of table cover and crockeries over here. Balanced?
2. Go all botanical! Collect flowers, take out everything tropical. I chose the table cover to be subtle and solid coloured to get the pop of botanical elements. The matching floral napkins and pot cover are recycled from an old cotton outfit.
3. Timeless, classy and safe. I personally love these kind of table layout for brunches and high tea.
Select two colours and play around with that. Teatime is always special for me, and for you? Tea or Coffee?
