When we have friends over for dinner I love to go all out with the table setting. My prettiest vintage tableware is coming out of the closets & I use the golden cutlery I got from Bolia.com a while ago. I can’t do without flowers, greens and candles while decorating the table. This time I decided to go for a botanical table setting by using greens like herbs, monstera & palm leaves and Eucalyptus twigs. The pretty blue table cloth I found at Dille & Kamille and I love how it combines with the warm tones of the plates and candles, the greens and a touch of gold. Recently I started collecting vintage coloured wine glasses and I love mixing them together on the dining table. I love it when it all comes together!
I think greens are perfect for a stylish and fresh table setting. I used simple Eucalyptus twigs to decorate the plates, put some botanical leaves in glass vases and added another green touch with some small succulents. Of course, greens can also add some spice to your kitchen! A collection of fresh herbs give your kitchen an instant boost! They’re not only very stylish, they smell great and are perfect for adding some flavour to you home cooked meals! Keep them in a pretty flowerpot or herb pot like this lovely one from Le Creuset which you can find here. I used basel, mint & rosemary to make a delicious garlic butter which I served with some bread & a fresh green broccoli soup. Usually I leave my pans in the kitchen because they’re not that pretty. This time, my new frying pan that I got from Le Crueset as well, was very welcome on the dinner table, nothing to hide there! Now all I needed to do was light some candles and poor some wine into those glasses, let’s eat!
