Setting a beautiful table is the perfect way to elevate a special holiday dinner and set it apart from your every day meal. Here at The Emperor’s Lane we have a wide selection of items from which to select to design your perfect table.
We love to plan a table around a particular color scheme or theme, or to choose one central piece that will catch your eye, and build the rest of the décor around that piece. Start with a stunning bowl filled with cut white flowers - we recommend this Ruby Comport Hoarfrost, which will capture the eye with its beautiful colors and design.
Then, surround it with beautiful silver servings pieces like our Ivory Serving Bowl coupled with this Serving Bowl Set are the perfect place to start. Using these as your core serving dishes, you can then bring in pops of color with additional pieces like this Kosta Boda, Tattoo Bowl.
Make sure to distribute your serving pieces around your table so they’re easy for everyone to reach, while placing them in just the right spots so that each piece complements the other.
When using bold, standout pieces like those, we like to have a seemingly simple, elegant backdrop. So next you’ll want to add this Velvet Table Runner to your table, which gives a luxurious feel while letting the serving dishes capture the eye and attention. Of course, the holidays are the best time to add a bit of glamour and we like to do so by adding a touch of sparkle with napkin rings like these Pearl Star Napkin Rings from Joanna Buchanan.
Finally, beautiful glassware and a set of tapered candles like these Denise Candles adds the finishing touches. We love these Whisper Red Wine glasses, with their elegant feel and eye catching design. The flicker of the candle light will catch every nuance and throw beautiful light around the room.
Of course, none of these things make for a special meal all on their own. It’s the addition of beloved family and friends and a delicious meal that truly bring a table setting to life... but the beautiful table will definitely complete the experience!
