Having a meal together as a family during the Holy Month is all about tradition.
Why not go all out and create a real dining experience?
When all is said and done, Ramadan comes once a year; it would be a shame to serve your banquet on a blank canvas.
For a truly festive spirit, set the scene with beautiful tableware; turn the evening into quite the soiree. Weeks are spent ensuring you have the right products; hours are spent preparing the feast of honours. It’s the perfect excuse to make an effort. The dinner table ought to look its very best — full of festive flair and luxury. This is where a beautiful set of dinnerware really comes into its own.
Beautiful serving dishes are a must when you are expecting guests. Pay attention to the presentation of your food. Dusting your plates with a sprinkle of icing sugar before serving is a top tip to elevate any pudding from a simple sweet treat to a stylish dessert.
Bowls, glass jugs and mason jars look effortlessly chic. Pewter trays and coasters seem incredibly refined, giving you the room to include fun touches. Cutlery can make a statement; quality pieces like sterling silver cheese knives are practical. Choose snowy white napkins and a rich hue for the runner to add a pop of colour without looking busy.
Keep things simple with the odd splash of gold or silver. Bring out the antiques and polish them to ensure a touch of sparkle. Don’t forget to accessorise. Bronze napkin rings will give the setting a sense of occasion.
For art’s sake Choose tableware items that have artistic influences. Opt for plates, cups and bowls in unconventional shapes for a modern, artistic twist. Pick dishes with unusual and striking colours and decorations. Incorporate some sleek, modern vases or hand-forged silverware in twisted, slanted shapes for visual interest.
