Here are four quick tips from Audrey on how to make a design statement with your tabletop.

{1} Don’t be afraid of color. Using colored glasses or goblets is a great way to incorporate color without going overboard. The glass provides an airy quality to the table setting without being over-saturated.


{2} Create texture. Instead of using a plain white linen, why not go for something with texture or something embroidered? This will definitely add some interest to the look of your place setting.

{3} Use a variety of mediums. Bring in different natural elements like wood or some kind of metal. This could be gold flatware or wood chairs.

  1. {4} Try mismatched. For vintage, eclectic, or whimsical styles, mismatched works perfectly! You’re mismatched items could be something subtle like your flatware or it could be something more obvious like mismatched vintage china.
