If the kitchen is considered the heart of the home, then the dining room is its extension. It’s the space where family and friends can sit down together for a good conversation and a hearty meal.
While the pandemic has silenced the usual lively space of your home, there’s no reason to keep it empty. You can still enjoy holding special dinners and spend quality time with your loved ones, albeit limited in number. With this in mind, don’t hesitate going extra. Go ahead and decorate your dining table with mother-of-pearl, embroidered placemats, wooden dining sets and more. Make it a night to remember for you and your family with these handmade items:
A Unique Dining Set
It’s customary for many Filipinos to bring out the best tableware of the house only during special occasions. This time, however, allow yourself to enjoy a fancy night with your family. Treat yourself as how you would treat your guests.
Priced at Php 999.00, this iridescent mother-of-pearl set is best used for caviar or delicately flavored hors d'oeuvres, to avoid any metallic or other unappealing aftertaste. Definitely, it can be an interesting conversation starter.
Wooden Square Server
Add rustic charm to your home with Tahanan’s wooden dining tableware like this handcrafted bowl. It’s made from quality Acacia wood and comes in two different sizes: extra large (XL) and extra extra large (XXL). It’s suitable for salads and other bright-colored FIlipino food viands, which will complement its neutral color.
Wooden Chopping Board
Prepare your favorite wine and make your own grazing platter with beautiful woodware made from Acacia wood. Instead of using it for cooking purposes, this chopping board from Tahanan can serve as your cheese or charcuterie board. All you have to do is pick up cold cuts, fruits and nuts, as well as cheeses from your preferred grocery store and arrange on top. Munch on these yummies while talking the night away.
Decorative Hotpads and Placemats
If you’re serving hot plates and skillets for the night, then this decorative hotpad from Tahanan will be useful in protecting your dining table and countertops. Setting hot pots and pans directly on top of your table can cause unsightly damage.
It can also be used as placemats to add texture to your tablescape. At Php 299.75, this versatile item is a great buy! It’s also made from sturdy nito vines, a sustainable choice for your home.
If you want more eco-friendly additions to your home, this set of decorative bamboo placemats from Tahanan is a good find. Functional and one-of-a-kind, it’s an affordable and long lasting investment. It comes in black and it’s natural beige color for only P299.75!
You can also try out something else, albeit a little bit more expensive than bamboo. A lupiz placemat set for 6 people is P599.75. For handwoven placemats, it’s definitely worth it!
Embroidered placemats, priced at P2,299.76 for a set of 6, can easily add charm to your tablescape. Wow your guests at home! Make your dining and hosting experience fancy with table linen designed with intricate embroidery. This set in neutral beige will help make it a night to remember, better yet, it’s a fantastic gift idea for your newly-wed besties or your mom!!
