Mixing & Matching at the Dinner Table

At PoshLiving, we have just added a tabletop section full of wonderful tableware! Nowadays, traditional table-setting rules have changed. So when selecting products, our mindset was, “as long as it looks beautiful, anything goes!”

We encourage you to try mixing our different patterns to create your own unique table. Designer, Christian Lacroix, has created whimsical patterns that go great together—if you want to leave the mixing-and-matching to him. His beautiful designs can also add a special touch to any table by complementing a solid dish that you already have.

Be adventurous and embrace color and shapes! Give thought to your dining experience! In this day-and-age of emails and texting, a meal is a very special way to connect us with our family and friends. Nothing is more welcoming than a well-set table and delicious food. The perfect way spread warmth and cheer.

Adding a touch of ‘modern’ to vintage plates that you already have can give your table a whole new look! This is what I try to do in my own home. I am always selecting a piece or two from our new collections to add a new spin to my old china.

This past Sunday, I had friends over for a relaxing dinner. I decided to use my flea market vintage plates with PoshLiving modern vinyl placemats (coming soon) to give it an updated look.  I added some colorful napkins as well as my Jaca glasses for a classic touch. These placemats make any table look gorgeous (and they wash wonderfully in the washing machine).

Cheers!
