The appeal of your meal happens not only when cooking, but also when serving. Add character through-out your meal with vintage serve ware that is in keeping with the theme and spirit of the evening.
As with a high tea you should give your dinner the attention it deserves. Boring glasses and fussy napkins should be put aside while you complete the picture. Add some vintage salt and pepper cellars.
A knife, contrary to what you may expect is not just a knife, neither is a fork or spoon just a fork or spoon. Styles have changed and cutlery with it, vintage cutlery will bring style right to your dinner table.
And as you start filling your table table with the perfect cutlery in the perfect setting, adding to the ambience will be the perfect lighting. Selected candle holders to match your vintage table setting will bring out the romance of a bygone era.

Table linens have become a thing of the past in a lot of house holds, recapture the sophistication of a meal at a well laid table covered with exquisite linen and napiery.
Cutlery, serving trays and even tea sets, silverware reminds one of when things were done according to a particular standard and there was both the time and the desire to live up to these standards. A well shone silver tea service spoke of elegance, and attested to the grace of the hostess.
Vintage glassware is as much to be admired as it is to be used. Glasses for every different drink, all styled in a manner that bespoke their charm and of a certain vintage, a decadence long forgotten.
A buffet to catch the eye of every child and probably more than just a few adults. A candy buffet is as it suggests; a doorway to another era.
