Throwing a dinner party? Just want someone super fab to serve you and the S.O. or the family, dinner? We hear ya! But striking that right chord between practical and practically stunning can be a toughie. Until now! These are the 9 easiest ways to turn your den of decadence into a room you won't wanna leave...
For when the dining table isn't in use - or when it is! - a stunning centrepiece can make all the difference and more often than not, doesn't have to be bought as that alone. Bunch together some candlesticks, terrariums or other stunning finds and voila.
Some of the pieces below will all fit the bill pretty well and won't break the bank. Have a look at them on BHG Shop by clicking here.
Art on the walls
Nothing quite adds as much space, character and sense of interest to a room than some walled adornments. Go fully bold, printed a pretty or something more subdued; the choice is up to you, as long as you pick one! Some of our favourites from the BHG Shop are below. See more by clicking here.
Vases on your surfaces
You might very well have run out of space on the table after decking it out in terrariums and decorations, but if your sideboards are a bit bare, think about placing some colourful vases around the room. Preferably with flowers in them but here's a tip: don't use real flowers. BHG Shop stocks some shocking lifelike faux flowers and they even come in flower kits, pre-done for you, so you just unwrap and place. Easy! Some of the best options are below or you can see them all by clicking this link...
Everyone loves candles. Just make sure you stick to using them safely! (Here's how...) Scatter them around the table, along your sideboard or even through other rooms to keep the magic going. We recommend striking ones on truly ornate-looking candelabras for that extra 'wow' factor, but even little tea light candles do the trick. Here are some favourites below and by clicking here.
Plants, real or fake
Greenery goes a long way in the dining room, injecting life and freshness into a warm and familial space. The real ones breathe and circulate oxygen around the room, keeping it fresh and the fake ones just make you feel like you're in a home-away-from-home without ever having to worry about maintaining them! BHG Shop stocks some options that will do everything you need them to do without breaking the bank. Click here.
There's nothing quite like a wine to un-wined the day, so making sure there's stemmed glasses never too far is a must. Do you have enough? There are some quality crystal and glass options right here for a steal.
