Using Elle Decor’s 7 Essentials to Setting a Table as my guide I have created the table setting below…. Enjoy!
1. SET A THEME:
“Setting a theme will energize and captivate your guests. Create a consistent look from start to finish… Look at the items in your closet; it will help you come up with a table setting that mirrors your style.”
My theme: Exotic and Precious Gemstones
2. BE ORGANIZED:
“Being organized is the key to holding a successful gathering. You’re less stressed on the day of the event, which helps to create an inviting, carefree atmosphere.”
3. SELECT DINNERWARE / SERVERWARE:
“If simple doesn’t seem special enough–mix things up. Combine a variety of complementary—but not matching—dishes, cups and platters with the same motif, such as florals or stripes, for a fun, stylish table.”
William Yeoward “Avington” Color: Orange: Charger / Desert Plate / Tea Cup and Saucer.
Haviland “Laque de Chine” Gold, Aubergine: Dinner Plate.
Michael Wainwright Truro Gold Pitcher: Water Pitcher.
Marble Salt and Pepper Cellars
4. SELECT GLASSWARE:
“Experiment with your drinkware and don’t let classification limit the use”.

5. SELECT FLATWARE:
“Sometimes it’s easy to overlook flatware. But don’t since it adds another stylish element to your summer table.”

6. SELECT LINENS:
“Choose placemats and napkins that pick up the colors of your glassware and dinnerware. Textured elements like embroidery add interest.”

7. FINISHING TOUCHES:
“Plates, glasses and flatware are a given, but it’s the accents that really make your table setting memorable and express your personal style.”
