TABLE DRESSING SEASON FESTIVITIES TABLETOP TIPS FOR THE HOST A Dandi look ... colour co-ordination on your table is essential for a spring party. Janita Singh IT'S almost that time of the year again to open your house and embrace the new season -- a spring celebration is the perfect way to welcome blue skies and beautiful blossoms. When hosting spring parties, your table will be the centre of attraction. Embrace the colourful, comp- lementary tones of sprouting green foliage, blossoms and sun- shine by picking the right table- ware and arranging for the perfect centrepiece and every- thing around it. Sydney design house (specialising in beautiful, func- tional and typically Australian home and tableware), Dandi says given the global financial crisis and success of many TV cooking shows, many families will keep their celebrations around loved ones at home. Celebrations will be about cooking and parties so its im- portant to get your table looking its grandest. Dandi says start your table set-up with a clean and clear idea. White always works so starting the display with a white tablecloth means adding more colours with centrepieces, cook- ery and cutlery later. Plastic placemats and paper serviettes won't do -- a table- cloth set with colourful fabric napkins can work wonders. VISUAL CUES Spring flowers: Nothing says spring like a fresh bunch of seasonal flowers on your table. Transparent glass vases filled with tropical leaves, sticks and stalks make nice displays. Kids display: This is the time to get the kids involved. Any artwork they have or anything made in school can take pride of place on your table. Crepe-paper flowers, painted baskets or coloured sticks are excellent showpieces. Think outside the vase: Not every blooming idea needs to be displayed in a vase. Make flower arrangements in bas- kets, gifts boxes, old pots and containers. Modern glassware in vibrant colours can be used. Trinkets and treasures: Open the display cabinet and dust off that fine china ware. Expensive dinning sets, fine silver and expensive gold, family heirloom are classy centrepieces. Say it with something else: When your table will be full of food, a large floral arrangement isn't practical. A centrepiece of fruits, vegies, cakes and candies will work.
