FOOD EDITOR SOPHIE GRAY’S TOP TIPS FOR A SHOWSTOPPING TABLE SETTING
1 HIDE THE MATS
If you don’t have enough matching placemats for your guests, conceal them under the tablecloth for a seamless finish.
2 GO BUFFET
Serve up the food buffet-style elsewhere, so you can leave the table centre free of food, with room for candles, fairy lights and decorations.
3 GREEN SCENE
Beautiful greenery not only looks good, it smells great – decorate the table with rosemary, ivy and foliage from the garden.
