Create Memorable Dining Experiences

2 minute readJanuary 2, 2024

The new year is a time to gather family and friends around the table for joyous celebrations. At Alfresco Emporium we love creating memorable table settings to encourage everyone to come together.

Deciding on the look of your table setting is the first step in curating a memorable experience. Create a relaxed and casual atmosphere with a tropical or coastal vibe or opt for a classic formal table adorned with white plates, linen napkins, and metallic accents. For an intimate setting, infuse the space with the soft glow of candles and the fragrance of fresh flowers.

Create a coastal dining look with our White Square Rattan Placemats, Natural Shell Mix Napkin Ring, Clam and Timeless Glasses.

Our diverse selection of dinner sets caters to every style preference, from classic blue and white dinnerware to tropical plates or essential neutral options in white or cream. Complete the look by adding a personal touch with statement serving pieces and cutlery that reflect your unique taste. 

Craft a tropical table setting by combining our Melamine Bahamas Bamboo Dinner Setting and Fruits Dinner Setting, with Gold Bamboo Cutlery, and Beige Linen Napkins.

Tablecloths, table runners, and cloth napkins offer opportunities to add colour and texture. Our current favourites are the Madagascar raffia tableware collection for a touch of natural elegance and our linen napkins, available in an array of hues. Elevate your table with napkin rings – the jewellery for your table setting. Choose from our extensive collection, featuring natural rattan napkin rings, metal napkin rings or options crafted from leather or shell to add a distinctive flair to your tablescape.

Styling Tip:

To create a beautiful dining setting, style your table with your favourite placemats and dinnerware, pairing your napkins with a statement napkin ring.

For added interest, consider layering different sizes of plates from the same dinner set or mix and match sets on a base layer of a beautiful placemat. For example, begin with a rattan placemat, introduce tropical print plates, and intersperse with white plates for a dynamic and visually appealing arrangement.

Create a Lakeside inspired tablescape with our Bamboo Dinner Setting, Madagascar Raffia Crochet Placemat, White Linen Napkin, Ticking Stripe Napkin in Navy, and Silver Octopus Napkin Ring.
