Get ready for family, friends and feasting

No matter if it's a small social gathering, celebrating a birthday milestone, or planning a dinner with the family, you'll want to ensure your guests have a good time. Need some inspo? Here's how...

Marble topped oval table, with gold legs.  4 pink upholstered chairs.

Step 1: Pick the perfect table

Make sure there's room for everyone - if you host every now and then and don't want the table to take up too much room, opt for an extendable table. And there's always room for one more, so be prepared with a couple of emergency folding chairs. For more table inspiration, take a look at our dining table ideas.

Step 2: Get the lighting right

Lighting is so important when creating a welcoming ambience. We love a statement pendant light over the centre of the dining table - or a floor lamp in the corner of the room to give out a soft glow. A few lit candles are the perfect finishing touch.

Step 3: Table cloths & place settings.

Step 3: Table cloths & place settings

Not only do they add interest to your table, but pretty placemats and lovely table cloths add a little protection against accidental spillages. A runner down the centre of your table is perfect for special occasions.

Step 4: Set the table

Treat yourself to a new dinner set and complementing cutlery. You can have fun layering up designs - if you've already got an all white set, why not get a few patterned pieces to mix and match with?

Step 5: Create a centrepiece.

Step 5: Create a centrepiece

Curate your own arrangement of lanterns, candles, flowers and those all important fairy lights = a DIY (but totally WOW-worthy) table centerpiece.

Step 6: Have drinks on hand

Make sure your guests are fully watered - we love the recent resurgence of the retro at-home bar. Stock with gorgeous glassware and your favourite tipples - maybe even a cocktail shaker.

Let's talk tableware

Not got a separate dining room?

Not a problem. It's easier than you might think to fit an eating area into a living room or kitchen. We've designed a range of dining sets and breakfast bars just for these tighter squeezes. Take a look...

Breakfast bar stool next to a small wooden shelf, perfect for a coffee.

To the (breakfast) bar

If it's usually just a table for two required, a high table in the kitchen is perfect. If you've got space on your counter you can just add a couple of stylish stools.

Modern wood and black metal table and two benches, set for breakfast

What about a bench?

You can tuck them all the way under so they're really compact, plus they're good for squeezing in extra guests too - layer with cushions for extra padding.
