Spring dinner with pastel shades

With the advent of spring, yellow, green, red, pink, all pastel shades, cheerful nature, and animal motifs are entering the collections of dishes and ceramics. That way, we can refresh our home with small details that we place in unexpected places. Therefore choose boldly for plates in these colors. With colorful details, textiles in neutral tones would be best suited to give the room an injection of color and still not overdo the coloring. You can complete the whole impression with a suitable floral arrangement.

Classic decor

You can never go wrong with a good old classic. If your dishes are dull white, all you need to do is add a few gold or silver details to the table in the form of towels, tablecloths, and candle holders. Also, a decent floral arrangement in the middle of the table, and you have a fancy dining table worthy of kings.

Snow white

Yes, everything can be white. You can use white dishes, enrich them with white table decorations, white towels, and tablecloths. Add white flowers to it all. And everything will look good. Some parts may be of different colors like the trim on the napkins. Of course, the cutlery will be silver. But in case of white decorating, do not skimp on the details. It will only be wrong if the table looks empty. As long as you have many white details, the table will look fancy and luxurious.
