Dining Table With Place Settings and Apple Centerpiece
At a large table (this one seats eight) consider using several small centerpieces rather than a single grand one. Here, a glass bowl filled with crabapples creates a low centerpiece while silver cups brimming with peach rosebuds add color and interest to each place setting.

One of the keys to a charming kids' table is layering patterns and colors. Polka dots on the plates reference spheres in the centerpiece. The lime houndstooth pattern in the placemats coordinates with the glittered Chinese takeout-style box that holds the arrangement.
Nothing evokes a summer feel quite like starfish and seashells. HGTV fan single_mom_on_a_budget dressed up her shabby chic dining room with her favorite beach elements in mind. She incorporated seashells into her year-round china display and then turned the dining table into a dreamy setup for four. Celebrate summer by creating a seasonal table setup of seashells, starfish, candles and small driftwood pieces. Invite people over for seafood favorites, like grilled fish, pan-roasted scallops and coconut shrimp, to go with the warm-weather theme.
Natural light is the key to ensuring the proper color values of each tone; however, when a white-on-white tablescape is lit artificially or with candlelight, each shade will be strongly influenced by bulbs or flames, causing the colors to read more warmly with yellow undertones.
Breezy fabrics, woven textures and seashells work surprisingly well with evergreens, mercury glass and elegant china. With seashells available in craft stores year round, you don't have to live by the seaside to use beach inspired decor when the holidays roll around. Add in favorite pieces beach vacation finds to give the table a personal touch.
