How to Make Takeout Look Like a Million Bucks

Summer’s here, and although we can’t all be sailing with Beyonce and Jay Z around the Mediterranean, you can definitely live la dolce vita at home.

Here’s how you do it.

Start with takeout salad and sandwiches from your local deli.

Set out a gold charger, to bring in some sun.

Add a marine blue dinner plate.  Notice how the gold detailing along the center rim picks up the glow from the charger.

Now, a napkin.  Which looks good, but a little flat.

So quickly add a napkin ring … gold coral looks good here.

Plate your salad and add a glass.  This one’s acrylic (and super popular onboard megayachts), but feels just like the real thing.

Need flatware?  The plastic forks and knives from the deli definitely won’t do.  So bring out this chic gold flatware set from Herdmar, and pour your ice tea out.  Don’t forget the lemon; it’s what the crew would do for you.

And finally, set out your sandwiches on an gorgeous blue coral tray.
