Setting the Scene
Give your next dinner party a boost with these sumptuous place settings
(page 1 of 4)
Mix and match bold colors and patterns for a truly unique look at the dinner table. The juxtaposition of small and large prints balances the look to avoid visual overload, and the jewel tones warm you up from the chilly weather outside. Little gems and hints of metallic give the whole spread an extra pop, like the napkin ring and square charger here. And feel free to experiment with mismatched elements! The beauty of this look is that it’s supposed to feel eclectic.
