Product description


A contemporary look at the age-old practice of table-setting. Fresh, funky ideas from ex Good Housekeeping stylist Emily Chalmers to suit every occasion be it a family get together, an intimate dinner a deux or a children's party. After an introduction to the basic necessities of dinner services, flatware, table linen and accessories, Emily moves into specific table settings. She demonstrates how easy it is to liven up even a family breakfast with fresh flowers, quirky egg cups and simple table linen; how to make special occasions such as Christmas, New Year, Easter and birthdays that little bit more special. Candles, votives and table decorations are all given an innovative twist and offer novel takes on the expected: place cards tied to chairs with a colourful ribbon, felt, Astroturf and slate placemats, floating flowers, petals and candles. All ideas are accompanied by the attractive and exciting photographs of renowned lifestyle photographer, David Brittain, making the book not only a visual feast but a practical guide as well. And if a more formal setting is required, clear photographs show the layouts from around the world, both informal and formal. So whatever the occasion take a look through these pages and you are sure to find inspiration to suit. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
