Number 1 tip for updating decor for entertaining is to change up your “tablescape”. Assuming most people who are hosting are generally having a dinner party, this is a quick fix. And it is relatively inexpensive to change the appearance of your dining table. Select a table runner that is modern, new placemats, pick up beautiful, fresh flowers that may well enhance the center of your table add creative new vase.
Think about ideas for things that could make the space a little different than it was last time you had family or guests for a dinner party. And even down to the dinnerware itself, you can change out the cutlery and the serving platters. It is a relatively inexpensive to make your dining space fresh.
Make sure the most expensive things in your room are the classic things. Your dining table hopefully is relatively classic, and your chairs are too, so hopefully all you must do is change out the accents. Bon appetite!
