Whimsical Elegance: New Traditional
Temper a riot of vivid patterns by using a two-toned palette.
Mix different sets of formal dinnerware to create a look that feels traditional yet current. A plate of oranges plays against the tones in the tablecloth. Add unexpected elements, like a sardine dish, for a whimsical touch. Brushed-gold utensils with teardrop-shaped handles are a formal touch that enhances the drama of the place settings.
