Funky Table Settings

Clean out your cupboards and add flair to your tabletops with mixed and matched plates and accessories. Take a look at some favorite table settings:

  • To create this Polynesian paradise, begin with a rattan charger and sky blue plate with a leaf motif. Add plastic dishes adorned with colorful island flora and bamboo-accented flatware for a final tropical touch.
  • Create waves of excitement before dinner is even served with this contemporary setting. Using dishes that share the same bright shade of orange--from the accents on the plates to the solid dipping bowl that tops them off--the color continuity is what makes this setting sing.
  • Sometimes all you need to spice up a table are some fabulous plates in full bloom. These were created with decoupage in which a paper collage is covered with glass. The rest of the setting is kept simple to highlight the plates.
  • Bring the flavor of the country to the table with this burst of flowers. Staying within the same color palette makes it easy to match different floral patterns so the dinner plate, salad plate and napkin blend beautifully.
