Create a stylish dining table with these ideas
When hosting parties and get-togethers, you need to prepare the food and the dining area. Aside from bringing out the best dinnerware, you may also experiment with the matching of your tableware.

It works because the glam elements add a new dimension of sophistication to a well-loved domestic style without being overbearing.

Metal + White + Organic Plate
Why it works: The texture of hammered metal contrasted against a ceramic plate with an unusual organic glaze makes this mix very modern. Classic white dinnerware is a good mediator of the two distinct styles.

Black + Brights + Quirky Details
Why it works: The dichotomy of bright and dark goes hand in hand to create a cohesive but slightly off-kilter table setting. Vintage-detailed cutlery and strangely shaped vases add just the right touch of quirk.
