Planning a sumptuous spring Sunday lunch or a May Bank Holiday dinner party?

If you want to be sure your table looks the part, then here are a few handy hints:

  1. Cover your table with a crisp white linen tablecloth and a contrasting runner. If you go for a plain cloth then you can change your table décor by using different colour runners. It is more cost effective to do this and it also means you achieve a classic, stylish look.
  2. Lay your placemats and put the main course knife and fork either side of each mat, then lay the starter cutlery outside this.
  3. Pop the dessert spoon above the fork with its handle to the right.
  4. Water glasses should be place above the knives with wine glasses above and to the right. Champagne flutes should be placed to the left.
  5. Arrange fresh spring flowers as a centrepiece and add handwritten place cards for a personal touch.
  6. Place napkins on the side of the fork.
