Fresh Ideas to Make Your Table Setting Extra Welcoming and Super Stylish
It’s the time of year when the leaves turn beautiful shades of gold and orange, the wind turns cool, and we open our doors to friends and family. We pull out time-tested recipes and decorate our homes to share hospitality and love. It’s time to gather together, make memories, and be thankful. The menu may be the same with minor alterations from year to year, but we’d like to share a few fresh ideas to make your table setting extra welcoming and super stylish.
Palettes this year have been neutral with organic elements and pops of color. This table setting brings the best of the latest trends together with timeless style, a natural linen tablecloth, white pumpkins, white dinnerware with gold trim, and gold flatware. The focal point for the setting is a unique china cabinet created with Waypoint Living Spaces cabinetry in 410 Painted Linen.
CREATE THE LOOK
Begin with a linen table cover, such as this Washed Linen Tablecloth from H&M. It keeps with the neutral palette and also adds natural texture.
This Gilded Dinnerware from West Elm By Fishs Eddy is the perfect choice. White dinnerware can be mixed or paired with other colors for that effortless not-so-matched look.
Mixing metals is the latest trend and this Gold Flatware from West Elm is a simple and elegant accent to copper, rose gold or silver.
We’ve seen a lot of white lately used in decorating, and pumpkins are no exception. These pale beauties are widely available at a farmers market near you in varying shapes and sizes. To complete the look, add some white hydrangeas and scatter some autumn leaves for a small pop of color.
TABLE SETTING 101
To set the perfect formal table, follow the chart below. If you’re planning a setting that’s a little less formal, just omit the serving pieces you don’t plan to use and move everything in towards the dinner plate.
