Your Home and Garden - - Your Style -

Peach, white, cop­per and oak make for a warm colour pal­ette that evokes sum­mer. Pops of metal­lic cop­per add just the right amount of shine to make this ta­ble set­ting sing. Vases of flow­ers al­ways look at home in the mid­dle of the din­ner ta­ble, but try us­ing a col­lec­tion of vases at dif­fer­ent heights and in dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als (for ex­am­ple, glass and ce­ramic) to cre­ate in­ter­est on the ta­ble. A beau­ti­ful scented can­dle won’t go amiss either to help cre­ate am­bi­ence.

Make your Christ­mas desserts the hero by plac­ing them on a cake stand and save your­self from get­ting up from the ta­ble by hav­ing a wine bucket on hand. Stacked din­ner­ware set­tings al­ways look good and a fab­ric nap­kin adds a touch of so­phis­ti­ca­tion.
