In the age of digital media and digital content, hosting dinners or social gatherings, in general, is just not about bringing over guests – we love to share our lives online and one of the main aspects of doing that is ensuring that not only the food looks amazing but our table settings look just as good. Corelle has always been known to bring that element of style and panache to the table and you would probably be surprised to know that since the time they were launched in the 70s there have been at least 2000 designs that they have come up with their tableware that has enchanted hearts and adorned tables worldwide. So when you are thinking about hosting another dinner at home and thinking about how to style your Corelle and display it so that it can have an indelible impression on everyone’s minds, here are a few tips on how you can accomplish that.
- First and foremost, you need to throw out any preconceived notions you have about design and art symmetry. If your setup is casual you can just mix and match and have a whole lot of fun. The fact is that different designs and patterns can come together on a table and give a nice artistic look. Another way you can go about your table setting is mixing a set of patterns with Corelle whites and then alternating it — you could even alternate shapes and see a bunch of incongruous shapes come together. The same can be done in an all-white design field as well. The magnum opus would be to find the same design in a bunch of different shaped serve ware, that would add a fun twist to your table setting and make it worth remembering.
- If you are deciding to go for a rather contemporary feel, then what you can do is pick up a theme or a color that you feel complements the occasion. It could be a geometric pattern or a mixing of the same color designs in different gradients — it would mean bringing about a newness to your table setting and even the juxtaposition would bring about a design element that is so unique that the presentation would really stick out — Corelle and its unique designs can facilitate all that and make sure that your table setting screams for attention and rapture.
- One of the best pieces of advice for including an artistic element that always seems to do it for everyone is including floral elements into your table setting. You can highlight and accentuate that by picking out serve ware, that too has a floral vintage pattern. Corelle thankfully has a host of that — some of the vintage floral designs are just way too beautiful to behold and can not be ignored. In fact, Corelle has also brought back the iconic Corningware blue flowers out of exile and refreshed memories of a bygone era that the design seems to represent. Having a set of live flora or even artificial for that matter can really help in setting apart your table setting. To be honest there is nothing better than having floral bloom a part of the table decor.
- Our final advice would, of course, be to invest in nice table runners and placemats as they really make or break your table setting. Having the right kind of design or color that complements your theme makes a massive difference in how your final table setting looks. Once you have mastered the final template that you intend for your table-setting display, even mundane things like spice boxes start seeming like a fantastic decor element. Your Corelle serve ware is only going to enhance and elevate the look and take it to the final heights of perfection. But make sure that your elements go well even if in contrast, is a fantastic way to make your table setting stand apart and be the center of attention.
You can imagine rustic looks even like oversized sangria pitchers or cutlery that is so different from others — honestly, there is a lot of scope in achieving any kind of look you desire depending on the crowd you’re hosting. Have faith in your Corelle serve ware, to get you there!
