Creating the Perfect Dinner Party with Luxury Tableware
In addition to the ideal menu and a carefully thought out guest list, hosting the perfect dinner party begins with beautiful tableware. Choosing the right linens, china, glassware and special touches can add the extra touches to make your event memorable.
- China – A china pattern is the perfect way to show your personality and set the mood for your table. Select a style that reflects your personal style. If you have several options from which to choose, consider the menu you are serving before making a final selection. For example, a more formal menu may work best with an ornate traditional pattern, while a country design might lend itself to a more casual meal. If you are purchasing china, consider a pattern that could easily be paired with other options for flexibility in future uses.
- Glassware – Similar to your china selections, glassware should reflect the formality of your meal as well as your personal style. Consider using an assortment of wine glasses, mugs and tumblers depending upon the beverages you will be serving.
- Tablecloth – After determining the size and shape of your table, select tablecloths that work with your dinner theme, china selections and centerpieces. At Opulence of Southern Pines, we offer a wide variety of tablecloth choices. Select a variety of colors and patterns from famous makers such as Yves Delorme, Sferra and Matouk Lowell.
- Napkins and Placemats – Napkins and placemats are the perfect way to add a splash of color to your tablescape. Choose a muted tablecloth and a bold napkin color that plays up your china pattern to enhance the overall look and feel of your table design. Famous designers such as Anali, Ann Gish, Deborah Rhodes and Anichini offer a wide variety of colors and designs.
- Extra Touches – Centerpieces, flowers, candles and other special items create the final touch to your table design that make it truly unique and special. Fill a Juliska canister with flowers, pinecones or another natural element for a rustic look. Select finishing items that will add to the beauty of all the other elements on your table and will not detract from the dining experience.

Sleep plays an important role in both physical and mental health. When we suffer from a bad night of sleep, it effects our functionality, mood, appetite and immune system. A bedroom should be the most luxurious and personal space in any home. Creating an appropriate bedroom environment will help you fall asleep and stay asleep! To ensure a great night’s sleep every night, follow these tips for creating the perfect atmosphere in your bedroom.
Darkness – A dark environment helps set the right atmosphere to sleep. Invest in dark colored shutters, shades or blinds that will effectively keep out morning light.
Temperature – Not too hot, not too cold. Keeping your room at the perfect temperature (65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit) will help your body induce sleep.
Décor – Make your bedroom a relaxing haven by cleaning out anything that is distracting. Remove clutter, messy paperwork and anything work-related. Decorate with neutral colors like white, tan, and gray.
Ambiance – Create ambiance in your room with low lighting, soothing aromas and relaxing scents. Opulence of Southern Pines offers a number of home fragrances, lotions, diffusers and candles that are great ways to stimulate comfort and relaxation.
Function – What do you use your bed for? Many people lay in bed to watch TV, work on their laptop, browse their smartphone and even eat dinner. The only function your bed should be used for is sleeping and relaxation. A great way to ensure this is by removing distracting technology from the bedroom.
Comfort – Invest in comfort with a luxury mattress, padded pillow and bedding from Opulence of Southern Pines. We provide a range of luxurious items that will enhance your sleep including cashmere throw blankets, high-thread count duvet and sheets, down pillows, and comfortable sleepwear.
