 Garden- Having a dinner inside but still wanting to embrace the Spring time? Bring the outside in! This elaborate garden table setting is phenomenal. Moss and other shrubs are the base this centerpiece, and meshed in are wild flowers, leaves and tea candles. Nothing says spring more like light pinks and warm greens.

Glam- This dinner party look takes the term black tie quite literally. Napkins folded into bowties, paired with black metallic place settings makes this table simply glamorous. The gold silverware and textured balls are the perfect pop of color that complete this classy look.

Outdoor- With the sun staying out longer and temperatures warming up outdoor dinner parties are the way to go. This centerpiece is so easy yet magical. Start with a few large candles and sprinkle vases of wild flowers about the table and you can’t mess this look up. Outdoor dinner parties are supposed to be eclectic and give you the rustic feel.

Bold- If you love fun colors and patterns and want to make a lasting impression on your guests, this is the look for you. A simple burlap tablecloth with a neutral flower arrangement is all you need if you have dishes that are this fun and exciting. Your guests will be so delighted by this look they won’t even notice the casserole you burnt– just a little.
