The Re:Mark: Banquet Brag
Can you believe it’s August already? How fast is this summer going? I’m hoping the heat holds out well into September – I need to make the most of my roof terrace, and I’m not quite ready to give up sun-soaked afternoons in the park. There is actually one thing I’m really looking forward to with the coming of fall: staying in!
With shopping for a new dining table on my mind, and the accessories picked out to (finally!) finish my living room, entertaining at home is becoming my fave daydream...
I’m obsessed with other people’s dinner party décor – truly a feast for the eyes. Move over food selfies! It’s now all about the perfectly preened table...
I say, take a theme and run with it! Napkins, table runners, glassware and flatware all have an important part to play. Did you know we’re about to start selling copper place settings? Dream. Come. True. And you heard it here first!
One new Homeware buy I can’t wait to get my hands on: our new marble collection. Those dreamy candles will make any table setting more gorgeous, and the mini vases are perfect for a sprig of eucalyptus. The best part? They’re timeless and classic, and will be the perfect accent for all my feasts, all through the year.
If you’re anything like me, you’re eyeing up a green and white palette for that instant, fresh, and oh-so-Insta-friendly look. If so, you might as well go all the way! Add some palm prints into the mix. Get inspo from our tropical stationery collection, and pile up the printed notebooks on your coffee table. Add an elaborate potted fern to show your friends how to entertain in style.
Picture it: newly installed white shutters, closed. Low lighting from side lamps and flickering candle light, reflecting in the mirror. A glass dining table set for four, with a colour theme running through, and coordinating greenery in vases. Add short-cut roses, peonies or hydrangeas to truly finish off the look. It’s almost like the table setting's more important than the food…and well...it kinda is, really!
Come on, admit it: you want your friends to upload that pic, get those likes and Insta-brag for you! Whose living room will be the hottest ticket in town? Yours! And you’ll be coasting on your newfound fame all the way into winter's coldest nights.
