A while back Julie and I hosted a Belgian dinner party. Julie cooked and I provided the location and styled the table. We each got to invite 2 guests and the night ended up being a whole lot of fun for us, and hopefully for our guests Ilja, Liesbeth, Jeroen and Laura. There’s a video and some more pictures coming later, but today I wanted to share my resources for the table setting.
I wanted to go for something that would be a nice balance between natural, relaxed and glamorous elements. I was lucky enough to have my new table arrive just in time (the day before). We had it custom made for us out of beech and I absolutely love how it turned out. Definitely beats the OSB table we had before (pictures here). For the colour palette I decided on neutral colours with different textures. Black, white, beige and gold with a whole lot of plants to spice things up. The whole vibe turned out balanced and modern, and certainly made for a lovely atmosphere. Not pictured are the matte black soup boards and wooden platters for the cheese course, but more on that later in the video!
