Festive table decoration: All in fine white

Winter magic and flower poetry

White is boring? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Hardly anything looks as noble as a plain table decoration on silver and a touch of nostalgia.

Like a scene from Swan Lake, the all- white table appears . The fine vintage ornaments on the table linen, a little crochet lace, a lantern with frosty decor and silverware take you into a winter wonderland.

A stylish icing on the cake: the square- folded napkin, which is drawn with its closed tip through a silver ring and decorated with a decorative feather.

Dare to think of the big picture, because with a lush flower arrangement on the blackboard the festive table decoration is perfect. Although it looks elaborate, it is very easy to implement: cut moss into a bowl size with a knife and let it soak in a bowl with water. Shorten the stems of roses, gypsophila, chrysanthemums, freesia, eucalyptus, asparagus and cloves and stick them close to the moss. If necessary, pre-drill the holes with a skewer.


It is served: On a tray, vinegar and oil in nostalgic glass bottles await their use with appetizer and salad. For the nice labels, print the lettering on white paper and replace it oval. Using a pair of punch pliers, make a hole on one side, thread a lace band, and tie tabs around the bottles.

As a grand finale put white porcelain figurines with hot glue on the closures.
