Guests will arrive and be greeted with a choice of drinks. The dining room table and kitchen tables will be set with various different styles of settings Guests choose a style they like to work on I will work with each individual to create a table setting which they can photograph and have worksheets available to take home with instructions to follow if they are not confident to remember and work independently Encourage them to use a number of props and resources that I have such as antiques- candles fresh cut flowers and vases etc to dress their table Show various techniques to make a table show stopping in a short space of time Work with them to create bespoke napkin decorations and napkin holders Work with the group to design and create name place settings and menus for their event/table setting Encourage them to share their creations on social media We will then create a mood board in a book (the book is part of their experience and they get to take it away with them)
My name is Erica and I am a successful Superhost already on Air B and B and have been since 2015! I also run an Interiors and Antiques shop in my local town of Rugeley- called Erica’s -as well as a small Courtyard Studio in my home! I am passionate about Interiors and have renovated and worked on the interiors of over 60 properties over the last 15 years! At my workshop you will learn how to really go to town on your table settings and to create a perfect atmosphere through the decoration and setting of your dining table! It doesn’t matter if you only lay a table for a mid-week supper or if you plan to create a show stopping table for a gourmet dinner party- the skills you will learn on this workshop can be adapted and developed to suit each individuals personal style and taste! I look forward to welcoming you to my home!
