Celebration time: entertaining at home for less
You’ve got your closest crew and a reason to celebrate (and even that’s not mandatory!). Now all that’s left to do is get this party started. Here are some ways to put on a memorable bash for your near and dear, that won’t put a big dent in your bank balance.
Tip 1: Consider a plant-based menu
If you're cooking for a crowd of famished friends, planning your main around the VÄRLDSKLOK shapeable plant mince is a mouth-watering start for any number of dishes, from plant-based burgers and balls, to bolognese or tacos. VÄRLDSKLOK tastes like meat but is made from plant protein, meaning you'll be making a more sustainable choice - and a delicious, budget-friendly one at that!
Tip 2: use basic dinnerware as your base
Simple white crockery and clear glassware will always serve you well, no matter the occasion. They're also easy to dress up in different ways, so your table can look different every time. Here, they fit right in with the bold, black and white tablecloth, as well as the vintage cutlery and accessories layered on top.
Tip 3: look to nature for inspiration
Fresh flowers from the florist can cost a pretty penny, but that’s not the only way to add natural beauty to your table. A few foraged branches or garden blooms look just as lovely, as do dried grasses, pine cones, or anything else you cross paths with on an afternoon walk.
Tip 4: make the most of your space
Even a small dining area can accommodate a large group of loved ones... all it takes is a bit of planning ahead. A stack of these stools for extra guests takes up almost no room at all, nor does the backup table waiting on the wall.
