Whether you're getting together with friends for brunch or are hosting your very own spring event, here are a few party planning ideas for setting the table, no matter the occasion:
Pay attention to details
A beautiful table setting is all in the details. Napkin rings adorned with pearls, intricate detailing on silverware and colorful chair covers are all small details that will make a big impact on your table setting as a whole.
Not sure which colors to use throughout your table setting? You can never go wrong with black and white. It's perfect for any event, whether you're hosting a bridal shower or a birthday party. The palette exudes elegance and sophistication – plus, you can choose one vibrant hue to incorporate throughout the design, such as a bright coral or beautiful turquoise, to really help your table pop.
Mix and match patterns
Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and combine a few different patterns, such as stripes and florals. Just make sure the two are coordinated through the use of color.
Let your menu be your inspiration
Oftentimes the cuisine you'll be serving can act as the perfect inspiration for a color palette and mood. A dessert party with fresh ice cream and berries on the menu, for instance, would call for a mix of soft and dark purples through the use of flowers, dinnerware and a table runner.
