The art of table-scaping

I am at my happiest (and stressed) when I host a dinner, a lunch or a brunch at my house. One of my Passioni di Vita is to cook, despite making me hardcore anxious and autistic, I love having friends over at home.


These are some of my tips for anyone who wants to start or see how I do it:

  • The cooking does not have to be difficult to be nice. Literally just cut your tomatoes horizontally and sprinkle with herbs and voila



  • Tableware should be playful not too coordinated nor uncoordinated.



  • As center piece, always use candles that match the tableware and decor with whatever you have at home: fruits, bread, vegetables, flowers, woven bags, you name it - as long as it makes sense with the overall atmosphere and menu. I personally buy all my candles IRL (Milano - via Meravigli, London: Indian shop in Portobello Road)



  • Food: I try to keep it as natural and decomposed as possible, don’t mix things until you eat!!

  • Play with heights: use a couple of cake stands to put your food and create depth within your table.


  • Start preparing like minimum 2/3 hours before cause you will panic - even if you think you won't, trust me, you will - when you cook you cannot absolutely multi-task its hyper difficult!

  • Table cloth can be colourful but not dark!!
