Harry and Meghan style: Create your own royal wedding inspired table setting
5 top tips from Sundari Ferris
- “Your tableware makes a huge impact on the feel of your table. From the glassware through to the cutlery, if you’re able to go for beautiful items in your crockery then do it. It heightens the elegance as well as creates an immediate atmosphere, from a traditional cutlery set up to something more informal and modern.
- Sometimes it’s easy to over fill your table with tiny details such as menus, name places and favours – try and make sure everything has room to breathe. A good tip trying a table setting at home on your own dining table is to make sure things aren’t over lapping too much.
- For a romantic atmosphere with your table, use organic cotton linen and don’t be tempted to box in the edges, let them sit gently on the floor to create a soft puddled effect whether your table is round or long. It’s all about soft lines and using delicate textures.
- Long tapered candles on the table give the eye something to move across, mixed with low floral arrangements adds elegance.
- Going for seasonal British flowers ensures you’ll have the most beautiful blooms for your table, this also means that they’ll have gorgeous scent as sometimes imported flowers lose their smell which is incredible for your guests.”
