A Citrus Tablescape - House Beautiful 2020

At this brunch party hosted by interior designer Charlotte Moss, the woven rattan place settings and garden pots of dainty, unpretentious yellow flowers on a lemon-printed tablecloth feel classic and upbeat while the splatter painted green plates add a modern art feel. If you live somewhere warm, don't forget to provide your guests with some shade via an umbrella.

Apples and Honey: Rustic Table Decor for Rosh Hashanah 2019

"One of the most wonderful customs surrounding Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is the pairing of apples and honey. The apple slices are dipped in honey and eaten to signify a wish for a sweet New Year. But I’m always struck with the happy coincidence that apples are ever-present this time of year, a time of harvest, apple picking and back-to-school rituals. So naturally my holiday tablescape is often constructed around an apple motif." - Lory

A Sophisticated Dinner Party - Better Homes & Gardens 2020

An unexpected pairing of textured Bordallo Pinheiro "Cabbage" plates are made formal with the gold-rimmed "Eternal" pattern from Lenox which is grounded by a grape-colored, scalloped placemat that is stylish yet practical with its wipeable surface. A lavender napkin with grape embroidery reverses the color proportions. Laminated linen placemats with an arabesque edge take a reversed two-tone twist with coordinating napkins from La Gallina Matta. (Photo by Matthew Benson, Traditional Home)

Summer Seafood Boil
Mena and Henry Morgan

Coastal Shrimp Boil - Southern Living 2020

A little imperfection is the secret formula to throwing a traditional "one-pot". No-fuss flowers, casual votives, and chilled rosé set the simple yet enchanting scene. Anchor the table with classic wooden buoys that add to the nautical theme while keeping the cloth in place. Rustic red-handled core bamboo matte utensils and craft paper rolled over a gingham tablecloth keep the meal casual. (Photo by Hector Sanchez)

Heading Home to Dinner - Kelly Rogers Interiors

You'd never guess this was meant as a kids table, and for good reason: "Too often the kids table is a haphazard mish-mash of red solo cups, Chinet plates, paper napkins, and plastic flatware," says Kelly Rogers. So, for her table, she upped the ante, using melamine and acrylic dinnerware, cast resin vases, and wipeable textiles for a chic setting that's nearly indestructible. (Photo by Sarah Winchester)

Set the Table With Birds' Nests - Elle Decor 2020

"Bring beautiful spring scenery indoors with decorative birds’ nests. You can set them inside tea cups with tiny decorative eggs on top of the nests, this was really a hit at my last Easter gathering. Here you can get creative and mix and match or just stick to a color palette. Try mixing and matching tea cups, creamer and sugar bowls and teapots instead of vases and display gorgeous spring floral arrangements to brighten up your table!" — Nasiba Adilova Founder, The Tot

Perfect Autumn Tablescape - Front Roe by Louise Roe and OKA 2019

Create a welcoming Autumn table for entertaining throughout the fall season using a complimentary color palette. This table mixes pumpkins in various sizes, shapes and shades of orange. Metallic candlesticks, amber colored glassware, and tortoiseshell cutlery tie in perfectly with the miniature vases of red and orange flowers hid amongst the leaves on the table centerpiece. To finish the look, ivy is wound around the base of the candles and the bright green looks so beautiful against the orange pumpkins and red roses.

Hope Blooms Eternal - Carolyne Roehm Passions and Posts Blog

"King Charles IX of France received Lily of the Valley as a token of good luck and a symbol of prosperity from a knight, which he then offered to the ladies of the court annually on May 1. This custom endured in France and became its May Day. There are celebrations of May Day in many countries, with varying customs. As a child, mine used to include offerings of small baskets filled with either confections or flowers. The current traditions, especially prevalent in Europe, now include dancing around the maypole."

An Exhuberant Summer Garden Table - Matouk 2020

Nathan believes the more layers, the better, when it comes to a successful table. To achieve the right balance, he breaks a few traditional table setting "rules" by mixing the old with the new. Using Matouk's Calypso linens, he dreamed up a twist on the traditional summer table, brimming with color, texture, and shape. He chose the Calypso Tablecloth in stone for a solid base and likes to use linens that work all year round. Here, more casual bamboo flatware plays down the formality of the fine china. And the mix of colored and clear glasses gives the table added visual interest. (Photo by Nicole LaMotte)

Patriotic Tablescape

Festive Patriotic Table - Cottages & Bungalows 2019

"Gather all your patriotic decorations such as small flags, treat cups, ice cream cups, and straws. Most of my patriotic decorations came from the Dollar Store. These small party essentials will help you set a festive tone without too much investment yet will tie the whole ‘Fourth of July theme’ together. For my table, I added straws decorated with the patriotic theme to simple glass beverage bottles and used ice cream cups at each place setting to add pops of color. I also placed a few small flags in glasses to bring on the red, white and blue." - Janet

Pink Peony Garden Tablescape - Pizzazzerie 2020

"This tablescape would make the perfect spring or summer setting for a dinner party or birthday party! I have been waiting for this year's peonies to bloom so I could pair them with the Famille Rose plates. The gorgeous floral chintz pairs so well with pale pink blooms. The green cabbage plates were a lucky HomeGoods find, and I topped both plates on my Serena & Lily rattan placemats. I hope you’re inspired to set your own pink and green garden tablescape!"
