Family gatherings. Holiday parties. Friendsgiving. It’s the time of year when the calendar gets filled with lots of fancy (or not so fancy) dinner parties. All the reason to set a stunning table.
It’s not always about the flowers. Lean on seasonal elements for creating a casual and bountiful look. Try layering pumpkins (in assorted colors and sizes) with foliage in the middle of the tablescape.
A piece of driftwood speckled with lush berries creates a refreshing and unique dynamic.
keeping it natural
A rustic setting that captures the contrast between the bucolic servingware and bright earthy accents.
The subtle simplicity of all-white dinnerware sets a modern vibe. Even on a wooden tabletop.
a small space solution
It’s minimalism at its best in this intimate kitchen set up, where interspersed seating options rectify the lack of space. Ditch the formal succession of dinner plates and flatware, and stick to the basics.
the bold blush
There’s no underestimating the power of pink, especially when paired with a daring shade of plum. The trick to making it work? Stick to a warm color spectrum, infusing it with defiant touches of natural greens.
It’s all in the details in this rustic setup, complete with pops of vibrant hues and rich gold accents.
In a season where fresh flowers are scarce, a few blooms can go a long way. Showcase the season’s best with a posy of autumn wildflowers speckled with a lively bundle of organic greens.
colored in whimsy
An eclectic assortment of patterns saturated in warm hues imparts a unique spirit to a traditional table setting.
dressed up flatware
Skip the tablecloth and opt for simple linens with ornate silverware and natural textures.
rethinking place cards
We’re loving the use of oversized block letters in lieu of traditional placecards. Potted rosemary plants brighten up the white table decor, while providing a fresh, earthy scent.
