Tableware covers a whole host of products, including dishware for setting a table and decorative accessories. Tablecloths, table runners, and napkins are part of the tableware range, alongside cutlery, flatware, and containers.
When planning an event, it’s important to think about the theme. This will help you find the right tableware. If you are holding an outdoor event, water-resistant tableware may be better. However, if you are holding an indoor event, recycled fabrics or 100% linen might be preferred.
Tableware is not only a practical way to protect your table when dining, but it also helps to set the mood. It creates a stunning visual to complement your food and helps to match your theme. Using red, green, and gold at Christmas adds to the holiday spirit, while a stone or light grey is ideal for an evening of elegance.
The general consensus is to either match tableware completely or have totally mismatched tableware for a coherent theme. If you are matching tableware, opt for either a neutral colour to make it easier or find matching sets to coordinate with your theme.
