TABLE DECORATING BOLD IS BEAUTIFUL ENTERTAIN IN FULL COLOUR Choosing the right table setting for entertaining family and friends, above a Dandi display and right Villeroy's tableware Janita Singh BRING nature's vibrant palette inside when you next set your table to entertain guests. This season, embrace colour- ful tones of green foliage, fresh blossoms, bright sunshine and blue skies by way of bright and bold tablecloths, napkins, centrepieces and accessories. Sydney design house Dandi, which specialises in home and tableware, says given the global recession and the popularity of cooking shows on television, many families enjoy entertain- ing at home with the table as a talking point. For added interest, colour co- ordinate the table setting and choose appropriate prints that reflect the occasion. This summer, Dandi suggests using lots of colour with inspi- ration from seasonal produce and flowers. Use edible, seaso- nal centrepieces that add to the sensory experience of a meal. Or try colour blocking, where you pick one colour for your napery and another contrasting colour for everything else. Remember to adapt the setting to the time of day, as a lunch, afternoon tea and dinner party have different requirements. Villeroy & Boch tableware experts say you can use stun- ning feature pieces such as bowls, buffet plates or platters alongside regular tableware to create a personalised look. Details: dandi.com.au and villeroy-boch.com WHAT'S ON THE TABLE Floral displays: Nothing an- nounces celebration like fresh flowers on your table. Add your chosen bouquet to a vibrant vase or vintage watering can. Alternatively, fill several trans- parent glass vases with tropical leaves, sticks and stems for an eye-catching display. Kids' masterpieces: Now is a fun time to get kids involved. Why not give their colourful and creative artwork pride of place on the table? Think outside the vase: Not every blooming idea needs to be displayed in a vase. Arrange flowers and foliage in gift boxes, baskets and vintage pots. Mod- ern glassware in vibrant colours can be used to create a multi-layered spread on its own. Trinkets and treasures: Open the display cabinet and dust off your fine china ware. Food for thought: Interest- ing looking fruits will make an irresistibly tasty centerpiece.
