Keep the table setting together with a theme or a color. I recommend you go for a fun and whimsical print, like the lobster print on our napkins from our Summer '15 Collection. It makes the whole setting seem less strict and more fun!

Feel free to mix old and new items, it brings a certain charm and atmosphere.

Don’t do all the work yourself – have your guests bring different courses, potluck style!

Avoid tall flowers and too advanced center pieces. It only looks contrived and your guests should be able to see each other across the table. Instead, pick wild flowers and make several smaller bouquets. Candles are always great, but avoid too big and advanced candlesticks.
