Tabletop Tuesday: Royal Gold

Tabletop Tuesday is a traditional setting of royal blue, white and gold. The combination is often a classy, even royal holiday favorite.

I have paired this festive, yet soothing setting with a trio of cobalt glassware including a white wine glass with a crystal stem, a big red wine glass with a tall stem and a solid blue water goblet.

The repetitive pattern around the main China plate is an ornate scroll. The scroll design element is part of the flatware design as well. The smaller plate has a simple gold rim. Vary your plates like any great design combination to bring fun and style to your table.

Tabletop Tuesday: Golden Leaves

Tabletop Tuesday is a gratitude setting. The color schemes reflects seasonal hues of gold, brown, auburn and orange with leaf designs. Vintage gold flatware and glassware accompany this setting.

Did you know that leaves are symbolic of fertility and growth? In traditional Chinese symbolism, leaves represent a tree that encompasses all of humanity. May we express gratitude for all that we have and ask for abundance for all living beings regardless of the season.

Tabletop Tuesday: Shells and Pumpkin

Tabletop Tuesday bridges the gap between summer and fall with Atlantic Ocean shells and a seasonal spice scented candle.

This green and speckled brown place setting is enhanced by an emerald green bottom plate, vintage rosewood and brass flatware, brown linen, green glass and a designer candle; the latest edition to the YCD product line

Tabletop Tuesday: Verve

Tabletop Tuesday has some verve! Red, black and a splash of chili pepper red. Add some layers of shapes, sizes, patterns and retro fabulosity to really take it the edge. Spice up your tabletop with your food for a wonderful epicurean adventure.

Tabletop Tuesday: Purple Glaze

Tabletop Tuesday is all about style, shape and color. The bone plates are full of stylized design with elegant geometric details. The design proves that bone does not have to be boring. To take the presentation to another level, I added a vibrant purple bowl which complements the shape, texture and glaze finish of the bone plates.  The beige and muted purple linen adds a contrasting texture and correlates with the beige linen napkin. For fun, I added the multi-colored wood napkin ring and some flowers. Definitely try these simple tips at home.
