MB HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, April 3, 2012 1 HOW TO BE TALK OF THE TOWN TABLE DECOR IMPORTANT Janita Singh Easter table decorations can be anything from beautiful to whimsical, depending on your sense of style. COLLECTABLES Easter table decorations range from beautiful to whimsical, depending on your sense of style. You may want a centrepiece for your dinner table or an adorable vignette for the top of the fireplace mantle. Keep in mind that colours should complement each other and the rest of the room. Balance is important. Your decorations don't have to be symmetrical but they should have form and balance. And interest is created by using different heights, textures, colours, or shapes. Some vintage Easter collectables are: Tin chocolate molds: Tins with an Easter motif are a fun collectable. Bunny characters are the most popular. Easter postcards: The most popular postcards to collectors were created between 1895 and 1920. Easter candy holders: Made of everything from fine china to papier mache, they make great centerpieces. Salt and pepper shakers: Easter motifs or bunny- shaped are favourites. ENTERTAINING WITH the popularity of re- ality cooking shows such as MasterChef and My Kitchen Rules, more Australians are taking a keen interest in food and home cooking. While you may have the recipe, ingredients and wine under control, it's im- portant not to forget the little touches when enter- taining. When you make an effort with the food you serve, presentation matters. Dandi specialises in the design and creation of beautiful textile patterns and they say a little goes a long way when making your table the talk of town. Here are a few tricks to help you become the hostess-with-the-mostest in no time this Easter. Tip 1: Plastic placemats and paper serviettes won't do your masterpiece justice. A beautiful tablecloth set with colourful fabric nap- kins can work wonders when entertaining, as it helps add warmth and a sense of occasion to the table. Tip 2: Creative centre- pieces look fantastic, but make sure they are no high- er than eye level or your guests won't be able to see each other. Tip 3: Lunch is often more of a casual occasion than dinner. To make your table setting less formal, use a lighter colour theme when choosing tablecloths and napkins. Tip 4: Give each guest a menu outlining what you will serve. Seen any great ideas?
