A Pretty White Place Setting 2 Ways for Summer


Simple white dinnerware is a must for the modern hostess. You can mix and match it with colors, you can dress it up for a formal place setting, and you can mix it with casual elements for a low-key dinner. Williams Sonoma has shown two beautiful and simple ways to style their Victorian-inspired white porcelain dinner set, and each one is perfect for the season.

Yellow is of course the perfect color to incorporate into a summer dinner party. Yellow paired with that particular shade of blue creates a French country feel that is both elegant and casual. Whenever I want to make a place setting less formal, I love to use natural fabrics and elements, like the wooden charger pictured above. A small bunch of fresh yellow flowers pulls the look together. If you wanted the napkin on top of the setting, use a light blue ribbon to tie the flowers onto each napkin.


You don't always have to have a charger for a formal place setting. As long as you have a salad and dessert plate or a bowl stacked on top of the dinner plate, your place setting can look just as elegant if you use embellished white dinner ware. A few additional elements like stemware, a place card holder, and fresh flowers or candles will elevate the whole look. It's the perfect place setting for a semi-formal dinner at home.

I really love the look of the light blue with the light apple green pictured above. I've used this color palette for summer entertaining before; it's a great way to incorporate fresh produce into the centerpiece. Nestle fresh artichoke hearts and limes around candles and flowers along the center of the table.

  1. Admittedly, I'd get lost figuring out which fork I'm supposed to use.
