“The table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source of sustenance and nourishment, festivity, safety, and satisfaction. A person cooking is a person giving: Even the simplest food is a gift” – Laurie Colwin
Delight your guests with a beautifully set table during the holidays. Gallagher Convention Centre’s professional tip for setting a trendy and elegant table, for any holiday occasion, comes from Jerry Ntsele, director of operations at Unlimited Events Group. Unlimited Events Group is one of Gallagher’s preferred suppliers from our pre-qualified supplier network.
Jerry suggests that you keep the décor for your holiday table light and simple as it is summer.
A white tablecloth is an ideal base for a table, as it is elegant and understated. To keep the table simple but breathtaking add elements in rose gold and touches of green.
Geometric shapes are a trend that is here to stay. Rose gold geometrically shaped elements are very versatile and easily change from a day-time table setting to an evening table. Accentuate the geometric elements by adding white candles to the table for an evening event.
Another element that is very South African, fresh and on trend at the moment is the use of foliage and succulents, such as desert roses, as decorative elements on your table.
A holiday table is a family table and should not be too cluttered as it should leave room for guests to be comfortable and interact at the table. After all, the best memories are made at the table, over a good meal.
