12 Elegant and Intresting Tabletop Decoration Designs

1.Ombre Displays. The idea: revel in different shades of the same color. In fact, ombre design often features an assortment of tones arranged from darkest to lightest to create a fading effect. The table display below exemplifies ombre style with an assortment of candy and flowers in rosy hues.

2.A Rainbow of Options. we enjoy a whole range of color thanks to a rainbow party table that pairs a spectrum of shades against a white backdrop. From rainbow-hued food to the cube-like hanging decorations above, the sparse use of color keeps this spread from being overwhelming.
3.Modern Vases. For long table settings, dust off your vase collection and arrange pieces in a line along the center of the table. Fill them with dried or fresh blooms, and watch as your party table comes to life. Modern vases can be purchased at affordable prices, so if you don’t already have a a stash, try collecting a group in one hue, such as white. The result: a clean, crisp look.
4.Specialty Dessert Plates. If you’re itching to try a new dishware pattern but hesitate to replace the set you already own, buy a collection of dessert plates. Perfect for a dash of interest at the end of the meal, these small items are a great way to add a dash of adventure to your table decor (without worrying about tiring of an entire collection of plates in a new pattern).
