Color can absolutely make a gorgeous place setting and table scape jump to life. When we design dining-centric parties and weddings for our clients we always look to anchor each guest’s place setting with a decorative, beautiful set of dishes that brings the ambiance to life. We had the pleasure of styling a table top for the 260-year old German creator of extraordinary china and crystal designs, Villeroy & Boch. What we love about their wares is that they can provide such an #EverydayLuxury without being stuffy.
These plates can be dressed up or down, a key staple in any entertainer’s repertoire. Villeroy & Boch sent us the vibrant Anmut Orange Salad Plates to lend a happy undertone to our end-of-summer soiree, complete with dahlias and market fresh food.
…don’t shy away from color. Learn to love it and it will love you! A pop or burst here or there will look amazing!
…welcome guests to their place setting with delicious fresh fruit and cheeses on a plate.
…plan a late summer menu that compliments market fresh ingredients and easy-to-make in advance bites. Fig jams, fresh berries, delicious cheeses, and fresh tomatoes are a wonderful start.
What are your effortless entertaining tips as summer winds down?
