Top Tips

1.Allow comfortable seating for your guests and family. Choose
chairs that are comfy enough to sit on for a good few hours
whilst you wine and dine.
2.Create an intimate atmosphere. This doesn’t mean it has to be
dark and gloomy: fill the room with light and position furniture
so that everyone can interact and see one another.
3.Bring the outside in by placing flowers or plants on the
window sill. Not only will this create a lovely smell but it also
brings colour and life to the room.
4.Finish off with quirky features and add a unique element to
your finishing touches. Try different china plates in similar
colours to give a contemporary twist, or add a unique candle
holder for a modern focal point.
