A touch of colour can be added by a way of flowers or greens instead of plastic ornaments, says Bhave Shewta Mewara, co-founder of creative director of online store Gulmoharlane.com adds that using white, blue, burgundy and blue shades together is a nice idea to go for. A beautiful blend of all these shades will help you to create the perfect ambience for your dinner party. If you are a traditionalist who insist on using traditional shades, Sanvar ALagh Nair founder of online store Houseproud.in, says use bright red table cloth with green table mats and napkins, silver willow napkin rings and a pristine white dinner set.

You can use different accessories like angel figurines as the centrepiece that surrounds them with help of candles. While the centrepiece should be focus of attention, don’t ignore other details that play an equally important role in set up. Use interesting table linen with creative thematic napkin rings, paper lanterns and faux snowflakes to give the table an appealing look and feel, says Arora. Since your table is already sprinkled with decoration, keep it crockery and cutlery relatively simple. Add personalized touch to home name plates if you are hosting a sit down meal. You could even use draft messages or perhaps quick tidbits about the home decoration on scroll of paper before they dig in. Not only this is a thoughtful method, it will work as a good conversation starter too. If you are planning to opt for buffet setup, Bhave says it is better to use a three tiered cake stand to display special message and small gifts with cookies shapes like a gingerbread man.
