Casual Table Setting Inspiration

A casual table setting is a simplified version of an informal table setting. You can choose your theme and colour scheme and match your flatware to set a tone. A simple family meal or a meal with friends where each has a plate, napkin, basic flatware and a water or wine glass is what constitutes a casual table setting. And you can blend in your creativity with gorgeous center pieces to set the mood. What I love about our casual table dining meals is that our dining table becomes the focal point which is often neglected in our busy routine! Try it out at least once a week as a nice tradition, you will be surprised to see yourselves eat together more often!

I am going to share with you a link where I normally run a rain check on how to set a table. Please click here. Thank God for Google and I pull out a cheat sheet to check the table setting etiquette all the time. But there are plenty of other links to go through and you may find better ones that will suit your taste.

Some of the basic pointers to keep in mind:

·         Use a fitting table cloth for your dining table.

·         Layout a placemat if using one.

·         Decide on your flatware, glassware and napkins.

·         Once the flatware is arranged on the placemat, layout the napkin on the plate or underneath the fork.

·         Choose effortless yet elegant arrangements using flowers, candle or fruits as center pieces.

Here are some pictures to browse through to set you in the mood and enjoy entertaining your family and friends.
