I like entertaining and welcoming guests at home. My husband and I prefer celebrating special occasions at home instead of going out and dining in restaurants where there are lots of people, lots of noise, and no privacy at all.
That’s why when I invite my friends and guests over at our home, I make sure to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere that my visitors cannot resist. In fact, I am not the type of person who keeps her best china, silver, and crystal wares inside the cabinet — like many Filipinos do. I actually use them all, especially when there is a special occasion, a cause for celebration, and guests to entertain.
I try to make the night or day special by decorating our table and buffet setup in a lovely and attractive manner. I try to be as creative as I can to be able to decorate according to the occasions we are celebrating. And guess what! My guests just love them. In fact, they stay longer than usual because the place is good and the food is even better!
Here are some samples of tablescapes I do for 25 Mushrooms Kitchen. Choose your favorite and let us know if you want us to decorate your dining room just like it.

Celebrations are always more special when done at home. They’re private, intimate, and attended by the people closest to your heart.
