How fashionable to serve the table with porcelain and crystal
How is a cozy house, a family nest different and remembered from the most stellar and most famous hotel? The names of the owners, the history of the family, traditions and, of course, the decoration. Interior, spirit, hospitality. Porcelain, glass, silver, textiles — this is what distinguishes one happy home from another.
Tradition dictates the need for three sets: faience for breakfast, a family set for lunches and dinners, and a ceremonial set for special occasions. And to porcelain, respectively, and glass, and devices, and textiles. And no one knows what is more important. Parents keep and polish what they got. And then they give family collections to children flying out of the nest. Where can you go for tradition? Only to those who repeat the series of table props from century to century. For example, Bohemia Crystal goblets are a must-have for every decent family.

Bohemian glass is hand-blown by Czech glassblowers from a special composition, which includes not only sand, but also metal oxides, so it is light and crystal clear, just like crystal has reflections in the sun. Different metals are added to the glass to give it a color from red, green to blue and azure, and they also use a new technology to burn different shades on the glass itself.
The owners of the house are decorated with households, walls, views from the windows and, of course, the interior. The house begins with an aperitif on a grated and sparkling tray. It is appropriate to give the choice right away. And not only wine and champagne, but also the choice of the shape of glasses: flut, coupe, ver, glass, wine glass, bowl, pompadour … Weight and edges, shine and grace — the first glance of a guest is always the most demanding.
No beautiful table can be obtained without the following elements:
They should not look like a glass parade from one series, but like a symphony. «Beloved» is the main and most valuable household term. The family can afford to choose their favorite glass. Named. With engraving — dedication, date or initials. Sometimes colors of glasses of different shapes and heights may well replace bouquets and flower arrangements. Bohemia Crystal has many shades and is beautifully refracted in the light of chandeliers or candles. And if the hostess is not accepted to be too elegant, then it is elegant to afford a manicure to match your favorite glasses.
Tablecloths, although they symbolize home comfort, are sometimes inferior to mirrored or marble granite countertops. But napkins, those very correct napkins, remain the trump card. Size matters. Linen, jacquard, satin, canvas of rare characteristics complements and protects. The color is always white. And the rings and table setting only emphasize the idea.
And the point is not in the number of items in the sideboards and on the shelves, but in the number of staged plates. After all, it is they who bind, support the interior and set the theme. Let the main service remain white, and the stage cymbals will be the soloists. The crystal of the plates and the crystal of the glasses with the facets of the glorious and recognizable porcelain tableware. Or gold with gold? Or minimalism with the recognizable and iconic shades of Bohemia Crystal — precious glasses on elongated legs? Border, shade and pattern of porcelain, light, shadow and shine of glasses, grace of petals and height of stems, music, cozy light. Clinking glasses, music of voices over the aperitif. Everything is ready, please go to the table.
