Black table linens – The first thing we have to put on the table for a formal event is the tablecloth, long enough to be flush with the floor, but not crawl, immaculate and perfectly ironed. If we are going to decorate the table, this is the time to do it. Then we will not run the risk of tarnishing, discoloring or even breaking any piece of crockery or glassware.
The use of a decorative element gives the black table linens a much more elegant effect and makes it more attractive visually. We can make them ourselves with a little taste. Never put items that prevent diners from seeing each other. If we choose to decorate the table with flowers we will have to be careful that they do not have a strong smell.
If we choose candles, always lit, and equally, be careful if they are perfumed. “First, the low plate.” For formal occasions, a low plate in golden or silver tones, depending on the chosen decoration, will provide a very elegant effect. With a low plate of mother-of-pearl, for example, we will also get that effect. The distance between the lower dishes should be exactly the same and we will have to place them at a distance of 1-2 centimeters approximately from the edge of the black table linens.
