Colors That Pop!

Experiment with new fonts and frames: calligraphed place cards are always stunning whether they’re in a rattan holder or lined rimmed in gold. Get creative and use anything from pumpkins to wine corks to set your setting apart.

Patterns Galore

Balance fine and fun with an interesting pattern. Experiment with a new a table cloth, linens, or placemats to complement your china. From fabulous florals to bold block prints, emphasizing a pattern is sure to elevate your setting.

A Fruitful Harvest 

Incorporate more natural elements into your decor. Fill the table with fall fruits, veggies, and foliage to create a remarkable twist on a classic cornucopia.
