There is something very satisfying about finding a beautifully set table. The more colorful and filled with unexpected objects the better it is for me. The visual stimulation add to the enjoyment of the dishes and become a topic of conversation. When styling your table, keep an open mind about the elements you use - experiment with plants, fruits, flowers, decorative items, marbles, sparkles, you name it! Make it fun, funny, beautiful, and enjoy!
Don't know where to start or looking for inspiration? Try the following steps for easy table setting :
First, think about the colors. Are you looking for a very joyful and colorful table? Then do include pinks, oranges, blues, greens, and purples. You can get these colors from flowers, fruits or even sweets (yes!). The addition of crystals and white porcelain of the dinner plates will complete and support your color palette.
In terms of elements, if your dinner plates are mostly white and your crystals mostly clear, consider bringing some nature to the table with various species of green foliage, add some pops of color with candles, use ribbons to add names, menus, or napkins. Tablecloth can be used as a counter balance, for example if your table is quite charged, then use plain cloths to anchor your look. Sometimes, the attention grabber will be a beautifully designed tablecloth, a hand embroidered or hand painted.
Lastly, add some sparkle to give depth to the decoration - gold, brass, silver, crystals, etc. This final touch will guarantee sophistication and warmth! Now enjoy your table setting!
