Beautiful design is not a craft reserved only for designers and huge budgets. Anyone who has a passion for interesting, creative joy, and some time, can create wonderful things. Here are some great tips on how to set up and design your dining table for your next dinner party.

The Color Palette

The color palette will guide you in shopping and preparations. It’s recommended that each color appear at least three times on the table, otherwise, it will look strange and out of place. The color palette should contain between four to six colors, and it should correspond with the food you serve.


Tablecloths give the tone of the table, and they are both the stage and the background. Choose pleasant colors and textures to match the dinner menu you have planned.

Light Candles

Candles in all shapes and colors, add a lot of charm to the table. In order not to damage the aromas of the food, choose odorless candles.


If you have time, try to make the designs and decorations placed on the table yourself. You can make vases from empty cans, or flower arrangements from flowers you have picked in the field.
