Muskoka is a special place. What makes it more special is when family and friends come together. Some of the most memorable moments may include having cocktails on the dock, campfires, and of course gathering for the all-important evening meal. But when it comes to setting the table, how do you know you’ve thought of everything?
When setting a table for entertaining, take into consideration the season, the number of people, the theme, and colours. Most important is the centrepiece as it sets the mood. The centrepiece usually consists of something natural (like flowers, foliage) and lighting (candles, hurricanes). You’ll want a centrepiece with an appropriate height so you’ll be able to converse comfortably with guests. For a rustic, Muskoka feel, why not add pinecones or acorns?
Be environmentally friendly by using cloth napkins and decorative napkin rings. It’s always nice to switch up table linens with the changing seasons. Maybe you’ll want lighter, bright colours for spring/summer and dark, rich colours for fall/winter. Remember, be purposeful with what you include on your table; it’s easy to overcrowd your décor.
You want guests to feel comfortable and you also need to make sure there’s room for the food! Whatever your style, Hilltop Interiors is here to help.
