Today on Good Morning Texas, we’re dining in style!  I’m setting up a gorgeous dining table & chairs by Century.  This is one of my favorite dining ensembles.  The table is to die for!  With the leaf in, you can easily seat 8 or 10.  I love the height & the curved back of the chairs.  They’re covered in this sumptuous cinnamon & pumpkin fabric.  For a centerpiece I’m using some gold hand blown glass hurricanes, some left over pumpkin colored fabric, and fresh flowers in a pumpkin vase.  All we need now are some guests & great conversation & we’re ready to Dine In Style!!!

Steps to Dining In Style:

    1. Find a fabulous dining table & chairs
    2. Find a console, china cabinet, buffet, or side table to use for serving & storage of fine china & linens.
    3. A chandelier can make or break the room.  This is your chance to set the tone for the room.  Do you want glamour with crystals or something more rustic?
    4. Once you have the fabulous table & other major furniture pieces, you need to finish off the room with accessories, a nice rug, and some draperies to tie in your color palette.
    5. Don’t forget art or a great mirror above your dining console.
    6. Don’t forget the centerpiece!  Hurricanes, silk florals, & pottery can make a great statement on your table!
    7. For holidays, use a festive fresh floral centerpiece & candles.
