1) Work with the style of your home decor. If the decor style in your home is traditional , your table setting can also contain warm rich colors. If it is modern and minimalist then you wouldn’t fill your table decor with a whole bunch of stuff . There is also  hard and fast rules that say you need to use traditional fall colors on your Thanksgiving table — mix it up and use whatever colours or patterns you like very best or catches you eyes.

2) Less is more. A good way to start laying your table with with the plates first and then add your cutlery and glasses.  Now start adding you decorative accessories . Start with one or two kinds first and see how it looks. Then start building on it.

 

3) Generally all of us have a casual and formal dining set … when choosing your dining set for a formal occasion, pick a rich warm color and design that you can combine and mix with other colors. My formal set is white and gold… depending on the festive occasion I try to combine it with rich red napkins or a dark teal blue  table runner. So every year your table has a fresh look.
