Creativity in a well-dressed table

Good food is enhanced and the atmosphere set by a well-dressed table – and this is where the front of house staff can make their mark. A waiter who has half a dozen folds up his sleeve can influence the image of his establishment; a restaurateur can create a fresh look and mood for the establishment by changing the colour and style of the table linen. Everyone knows the chef is the creative soul of a restaurant, but the front of house staff need an outlet for their creativity, too.

The same goes for the domestic host or hostess – the kitchen is one side of the equation, but the dining room is as important in making guests feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed, so that the whole event is memorable success.
