A Dressy Placemat Adds Style to Any Table

A Dressy Placemat Adds Style to Any Table

Spice up the tabletop with a dressy placemat! Whether it’s a new season, holiday or you’re simply looking for an update, there is something out there to fit your fancy. Without rehashing setting the table from top to bottom—we covered that here—let’s begin with a brief discussion on layering. In order for your tabletop to coordinate, the table can’t be set with all bold pieces and patterns in differing color schemes. Eventually, you’ll have a multitude of pieces that feel too busy, don’t work with any other pieces, or only fit into a very specific niche setting.

Putting together a gorgeous tabletop presentation is a puzzle where the pieces will always fit, be careful they also coordinate. How you layer the pieces on your table and the colors you choose crescendo as the pieces are all laid out, awaiting their guests. A splash of bold color or a dash of interesting pattern can really spice things up at a table setting. A dressy placemat is the perfect place to begin.
