The Art of Entertaining

The key elements to a successful dinner party can be broken down into four essential categories; food, lighting, music and the all-important seating plan.

Once you have the menu mastered, candles lit, playlist spinning and place cards arranged, it’s on to the table setting.

The most beautiful tablescapes are often the simplest. So ditch the over-the-top candelabras, mish-mash of ornaments and towering flowers (which can distract and obstruct guests’ view during conversation) and follow our insider guide to creating a memorable bash below. 

The shopping malls in the Middle East are filled with décor havens, from luxurious interior stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more affordable buys found in Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre. 

When browsing the shops be sure to keep a colour-theme or style in mind to avoid your space looking cluttered. For example, do you want a blue and white nautical look, a dramatic monochrome palette or perhaps a relaxed bohemian theme running throughout? Make up your mind and stick to your vision.
