Using colors is the easiest and the cheapest way to decorate a room or a table. The style, the shape and the motif of an object determine whether it is chic or not.
Colorful items look more festive. That is why I like to play with colors when I create a party design.
Each piece makes a strong statement on its own. If you put together these three objects, you will have the basis of an amazing tabletop.
1 | Design Hole
Instinctively, you see these stunning pitchers next to a modern dinner set. But beside bona china dinnerware, the contrast between the old and the new operates its magic.
The glass blowing artist and designer that created those pitchers is named Nicholas Kekic. The cheapest place where to buy his pitcher is iluren, at least from my research so far. On his Web site, you can get matching tumblers at $40 a piece.
Thanks to Jennifer of the always captivating Design Hole who first spotted these pitchers on the New York Times.
2 | Roomservice
The Tazana Stemcell Light collection and especially the Foilage Light caught my eyes. Its low price means that you can afford to hang a long row of 5 to 7 pendants. I discovered those through the blog of the Scandinavian woman behind Roomservice.
Nadejda of Pan-Dan introduced the Amar(ant) tablecloth by Isle Design. Here the designer pushed the envelope of traditional table cloth by coating elastic material. The motif is definitely inspired by traditional motif. This is a trend right now.

Setting a table is a real skill most people don’t appreciate. I love that table cloth. I also love Pan-Dan’s blog. Always good stuff there. I’ll have to check out Room Service.

Jennifer: When you entertaining at home, that is the most important. People do not realize that if they set in advance a stunning dinner table, they immediately create a Wow factor that people will remember.
