The Party Place_Tips For Creating The Perfect Place Setting

We know a thing or two about setting the perfect table. Placing all the extraordinary details so that they shine, choosing complementary colors, and selecting the perfect China all take savvy — but these tips will point even the most inexperienced novice in the right direction.

Let Your Dinner Dictate Your China (and always order extra soup bowls)

Your heart may be set on the gilded China set, but if your buffet line is saucy or your main course a bit soupy, an ostentatious gold trimmed plate will be lost in the sauce. Choose the China that best accompanies your meal and move forward from there. And remember soup bowls can do double duty as condiment holders and dessert dishes.

Stick To Your Theme

It’s easy to get overwhelmed, so choose a theme and stick to it, whether it’s based on a floral bouquet, a song, or a color, deviating from your central theme is a great way to water down your theme entirely.

Use Decorative Name Tags

Place settings are taken up a notch when guests arrive to their tables to find decorative name tags at their place setting. It’s absolutely worth it to brush up on your cursive to elevate your tablescape to something truly memorable.
