Forgot your kid’s birthday or the date of your anniversary completely slipped your mind?
At a time where dining-out at fancy restaurants for a celebratory meal is no longer an option, if you find yourself struggling to make last minute plans, there is no need to be overwhelmed, we have got your back.
For those of us who love to cook, we know how important it really is to have a perfect plate-up for the delicious dishes we take hours to whip up in the kitchen, and the manner in which we choose to serve our guests aptly reflects on the hospitality, warmth and fervor of the hosts themselves. And hey, for those of you who don’t know how to navigate your way around a kitchen, there are always delivery options available, and once the food is plated and placed on the table, who’s going to know? Shhh! We won’t tell if you don’t.
Besides, the serving of the food is as important as the taste itself. From dinner plates, snack plates and cutlery to snack bowls, serving tray and glasses, every single item is principal in setting up a luxurious dining experience. Which is why, be it a home cooked meal or delivery from your nearest Chinese takeaway, choosing the right dinner set to present your food is absolutely imperative, and we are here to tell you how.
1. White Dinner Set
Anniversaries are for pulling out all the stops and there is no better way to celebrate you and your partner than with a delicious meal. You bring the food, we bring the ideas. And of course, the table set up has to match the delicacies cooked with love, so we recommend our classy White Dinner Set.
There are a total of 16 pieces and it includes a complete set of plates, bowls, spoons and chopsticks, in case you want to go oriental.
If not, then for the big day, we have a special menu curated just for the two lovebirds. Some chicken breasts rolled with spinach, herbed cream cheese and walnuts are a savory surprise that can be the entrée served in some of the small plates, leaving the rest for the after-meal treat – a tiramisu served on the dessert plates.
A hot serving of Gazpacho soup and a generous serving of pesto pasta, and your partner is bound to fall in love with you all over again. To add to the romantic atmosphere, might we suggest a candle-lit dinner using our delicate metal candle holders placed on the sides? They can act like the perfect height extensions to create a magnificent table setup, paired with our classic white candles.
2. Hand Painted Dinner Set Nitori
Birthdays are supposed to be fun and exciting, and what better way to bring fun to the table than to serve a wholesome brunch on our Hand Painted Dinner Set Nitori.
The 33 piece set comes in a blue and white pattern, and carries to your dining table a certain oceanic vibe, so we’d recommend some sea-food based starters like a shrimp tempura or a crab salad arranged on the snack plates to kick start the birthday meal. A simple main course goes a long way, so some calamari noodles and tomato miso soup might just be the right choice.
Needlessly to say, no birthday is ever complete without a generous serving of cake, so what about a simple German Chocolate cake made using our Baking Tray Round to tingle those taste buds?
You can always place the cake on the tabletop in Cake Plate with Cover until the end of the meal, and it adds to the overall look of the setting as well.
Nestip: There’s always the colorful range of Textured Candles to choose from to add to the décor for a colorful splash on the table.
