Is it a sign of maturity if one gets excited over table setting? I feel one crosses a new stage in life once you find joy in kitchen and dinnerware. This escalates especially when you find pieces that inject some personality and fun to the usual setup. You can mix and match according to the occasion. There’s also this secret wish to be the favorite venue for your friend’s dinner parties because you just get all the elements right. (Please tell us it’s not just us who feel this way.)
Nevertheless, the upcoming weeks will call for many dinners and meals. When there’s good company and food, you’ve got to step it up from the usual. Here are some key pieces you can use to add some fun to your table.
For the coming summer days, color is key. Pep it up with some of these place mats that take inspiration from Pintados design. Available online.
For something a little bit more fancy, go for these floral printed plates. Just get your usual white linens so your setup won’t look busy. Available at The Landmark.
A clear glass vase with fine leaf prints is something that will hold your preferred flowers well and would go with any theme you’re aiming for. Available at SM Mall of Asia.
Have this one around for water and you’ll have a good conversation starter. Also a great motivation for your kids to drink more water. Available at SM Aura.
If your usual wooden salt and pepper grinders are in need of some replacement, you can’t go wrong with these. Aside from the assortment of colors they come in, you can adjust them to give you either fine or coarse grains. Available at Uptown Mall, BGC.
