Autumn doesn’t have to feel dark and gloomy, especially when it’s the perfect time for catching up with friends and loved ones. Gather everyone round for an autumn get-together and set a cosy, relaxed table where you’ll want to linger for hours.
Set the mood
Dinner’s ready and your guests have arrived. Set the mood for a relaxed and informal meal. Mix and match your favourite plates and glasses, and add a beverage dispenser to free up room on the table. Add a few candles for extra cosiness.
The more, the merrier
Unexpected guests? No problem. There’s always room for more when we’re having a good time together. Pull over an extra stool, grab a few more plates, and let the good times roll.
Relax and enjoy
Keep it casual and serve food straight from the pot or roasting tin. It’s a homely and relaxed way to enjoy your meal and your guests’ company. Plus, it makes it even easier to grab seconds and thirds.
No need to leave the table
Need to turn on more lights? Not to worry. With smart lighting, you can adjust the lighting to the setting you want with a remote or an app on your smartphone.
For autumn get-togethers, the key to a great evening is setting an informal and relaxed mood. By keeping it warm, cosy and casual, you and your guests will love lingering at the table.”

Clever ways to save space
A towel stand is a great stand-in for extra shelving when you’re short on space. Just hang a few baskets and bags from it for must-have items like extra napkins, throws, or tableware.
Just add light
Want to add a little more light to a corner? Decorate your repurposed towel stand or shelf with a light chain. It looks great and suddenly it feels festive and bright.
