Wake up your dinner table decoration by layering new and vintage china in complementary hues on a crisp white tablecloth.

Choosing silverware that echoes the china pattern is a sophisticated way to tie together a place setting. Here, the handle detail on the heirloom silver complements the four-petal flower pattern on the salad plate.
