TABLESCAPING: CREATING A MIX & MATCH DECOR FOR YOUR DINING TABLE

I have a pretty good stash of table napkins, vintage candle holders and an assorted mix of new & vintage dishware that I’m finally throwing together to give you some inspiration to create your own eye-catching tablescape. 
I LOVE a beautiful, thoughtfully designed table, especially one that incorporates vintage pieces and a mix & match aesthetic. I decided to create this post after coming across my “new”  flatware which is recent thrift store find…and only $18! It’s from S.Samran Thailand Co. and has teak handles, curvy knife blades and well-patinaed BRONZE prongs/bowls/blades. Yes, bronze. It’s not too often that you find bronzeware, so I feel like the thrifting gods were shining down on me this week…score.

Here’s how I pulled this together:

Eggplant Charger: Z Gallerie
Large Black-rimmed Dinner plate: Thrifted
Small Scalloped Gold Salad plate: Thrifted
Black & White Geometric Dinner Napkin: Dwell Studio for Target
Peacock Feather napkin ring: World Market
Tablecloth: Waverly, Seeing Spots
Vintage Bronze Flatware: Thrifted
Vintage brass candlestick holders: Thrifted
This is only one place setting, but it gives you a visual idea on how to mix & match pieces to create a well-curated & high-end table design with some inexpensive items. I don’t generally set a table (to this degree) for guests, but throwing this number together definitely made me want to start.

So tell me about your entertaining strategies–do you go all-out to set the table for your guests or is the food service good enough??

    Does one need to have neutral tones for the dining space if you have such a table? What would you suggest?
