Entertaining in style
Make a lasting impression on your guests this Christmas with quality serveware from Total Food Equipment.
With the festive season just around the corner, there’s no better time to take stock of what’s in our cupboards – not only to address the question of what to eat, but what to serve it on.
Christmas and New Year celebrations often involve the arrival of house guests, dinner parties, wine and cocktails. Over the summer period, entertaining can either be a formal or informal experience, depending on the occasion and whether we dine indoors or al fresco. With an array of dining possibilities, the season presents an opportunity to refresh our collection of serveware and ensure we have everything we need.
If you’re expecting house guests, then stocking your shelves with a good set of breakfast bowls, plates and mugs is a good start; while an invitation for wine and antipasti calls for large platters, dipping bowls and glassware; and for the ultimate formal Christmas dinner, a 12-piece dinner set will cater for bigger groups.
Whether you favour a classic, timeless style or a more traditional look, dressing a table begins with beautiful crockery and cutlery, and ends with the finishing touches like linen napkins and vases crammed with bright summer blooms.
Bring your dinner table to life with quality serveware from Total Food Equipment this summer.
Dressed for success
1. Add a splash of colour to a neutral table setting with groupings of fruit placed in glass vessels along the length of the dining table.
2. Bring the outdoors in, by adding fresh foliage in the form of flowers or potted plants as a low lying centrepiece.
3. Introduce magical ambient light with a line of tealights or a cluster of candles of varying heights.
4. To personalise the table and make guests feel welcome, add hand-scribed name tags to plates with a sprig of fresh rosemary or lavender.
