To create your own enticing green feast, mix mossy or vegetal greens with hits of emerald or jade tones, incorporating dishes, glassware and other vessels with charming botanical shapes and motifs.

Accessorize individual settings with green-trimmed linen napkins and tiny transparent vases filled with sprays of cuttings such as Queen Anne’s lace.
