Creating the Perfect Tablescape Part 3: Serveware & Dinnerware

July 7, 2023

We’ve made it to the final installment of my series on creating the perfect table setting! If you haven’t seen the first two posts, we start out with creating centerpieces in part 1 and curating linens (tablecloth, napkins & placemats) in part 2. As someone who loves to collect unique and colorful glass & ceramics, this is one of my favorite aspects of setting a table. There are so many options when it comes to dinnerware & serveware that can add thoughtful details and touches to the tablescape. Below I’m going to share some tips and some of my favorite tabletop items to get you started!

  • My biggest tip here is one that carries throughout every aspect of setting a table – things don’t need to match! In fact, it’s actually more fun and adds more character when the cups don’t match the plates, the plates don’t match the bowls, etc. Just use whatever you have laying around the house as long as there isn’t TOO much pattern mixing or crazy color combos.
  • An underrated way to add a unique touch to a table is using fun cutlery/flatware that’s not just your basic silver. My favorite non-silver cutlery is enamel (tortoise or solid colors) and gold. I’ll be linking examples of these in the post!
  • Have fun with pitchers and serving bowls too! A lot of people forget this element!

  • There should be both a glass for water and a different type of glass for a secondary beverage at each place setting. Play with different styles of glasses! Instead of a basic cylinder water glass, maybe opt for a colored goblet. Switch up your basic wine glass for a coupe glass.
