Tableware

The choice of tableware is like the packaging of a dish. With the delicious dishes, of course, you must also have suitable tableware to dress and match it up. This will not only give the additional mark to the look but also increase appetite and mood!

Pasta and brunch-style dishes can be served in simple lines or simple printed plates; the refreshing milk oat, yogurt, and fruits or salad can be put in the transparent glass bowl, it can increase the visibility of the color of fruits and vegetables. Use wooden tableware was also a choice to make them look more natural and healthy. The pureness of wood color can highlight the cuisine in the dish.

Herbs

Many people think that the role of herbs is only for flavoring, but in addition to flavoring your food, it can also use for a visual embellishment to your dishes! For example, sprinkle some black pepper on a poached egg, add some oregano leaves to the steak, pour some chia-seeds to your milk oats, putting rosemary on your iced coffee, etc. Use the herbs to be a decoration of your dishes, make the appearance look special, and also bring some unique aroma to your food.

Space and ambiance

Creating a good vibe is a must for your dining. When dining in the restaurant, I believe you also pay great attention to the decoration and environment. Although we cannot change the decoration of our home in a short time, we can use our thinking to create the desired dining atmosphere. When having brunch, find a place with a little streaming sunlight; when having dinner, clean up your table and leave some space, play some music that suitable for dinner, and try to turn off the TV. Enjoying the beautiful dinner time with yourself or with your family without any distractions.
