Generally use of unscented candles work much better for the dinner table. Having a very strongly scented candle can be overwhelming for the quiet dinner experience.
Choosing colors for the table is a very important part of dining experience. Using yellow or white flowers work perfectly for simple dinners, both colors refecting peace and harmony. But red flowers are still the best choice as the warm inviting look they give a table.
