9 tips on table decoration.

The decoration on the table.

La decor It is the ideal complement to finish off an elegant table setting. An elegant table is not an ornate table.

Remember that an ornament should never be a hindrance. The golden rule to decorate a table should be: do not create barriers with the decoration.

Avoid isolating your guests with overly bulky decorations. Calculate the number of guests and the space available at the tables to know how much space you have to decorate the table.

Candelabra and centerpieces are the most used elements in the decor. The candles in the candelabra should be white or ivory in color. On certain occasions, like Christmas, red candles are allowed, for example.

Candles should only be set at dinners, and if they are lit, it is done after the guests have sat down at the table. The candles must be made of odorless wax. In most cases candles and candelabra are used as mere decoration and are not usually lit.

If you choose to use flowersWhether natural or dried, they should be unscented flowers, as they can interfere with the aroma of food and drink. The flower arrangements should not cover the guests either.

You should choose very low designs, to allow the guests face each other. They are placed widely spaced, thinking of leaving room for trays, sauce pans and other items that we need to place on the table.

Rectangular tables give more play for decoration than round ones, which admit only a flower arrangement.

And of course, do not forget the other elements to combine: table linens, crockery, glassware and cutlery

I am a dreamer and in my dreams I believe that a better world is possible, that no one knows more than anyone, we all learn from everyone. I love gastronomy, numbers, teaching and sharing all the little I know, because by sharing I also learn. "Let's all go together from foundation to success"
