Informality of styling and tableware is key during the breakfast service to allow the transition of richer, more colourful pieces to play a role into the evening to define the different day parts and create varied customer experiences.
LINEN AND TABLE COVERING
Timber and marble table tops are left uncovered but the introduction of Arabic influenced metallic place mats at each table setting meet with the brand standards for breakfast service.
TABLETOP, GLASS AND SILVERWARE PIECES
Tables will be laid for breakfast with folded white linen napkins and a full cutlery set. A coffee cup and juice glass will also be laid in place for each guest. Other tabletop pieces to be positioned on all tables are milk jugs, sugar bowls, and salt and pepper grinders. Some of these items such as napkins, cutlery, juice glasses, and salt and pepper grinders will be those used throughout the rest of the lunch and dinner service.
CHINA AND SERVINGWARE
Chinaware will also be to match the evening service—pure-white, understated and contemporary design.
The buffet breakfast will have a light and contemporary feel, with nods towards tradition and colour. There will be an abundant display of food on the chef’s table contained within simple glass and timber dishes, some being raised on stands for height variation and interest. Breads will be stacked high on cream woven mats to add a softness and contrast to the timber table top. Additional glass servingware will be introduced for juice, parfait, dried goods etc, these will have a more curved form to tie in with the tabletop pieces. Larger serving dishes will bring in the element of colour and tradition, along with the serving cutlery which will have traditional detailing to the handles, but still of a contemporary style.
