Fancy Food Friday: It’s All in the Plate

Every Friday, we provide you with a dinner tip that’ll help you take your meals from regular to wow, and this Friday is no different! Keep reading to get the tip that will put a smile on everyone’s faces the next time you make dinner.

The easiest way to spruce up your table is to add some funky accessories! A lot of times, we get caught up in how well our plates match everything else on the table, when actually mixing it up and adding different pieces helps create a unique table setting.

Here are 3 tips for surprising your guests and making your table a bit funkier:

1. Add placemats. Placemats are the easiest way to add a lot of color and texture to your table. Try to add contrast between your table top color and the placemats. They have great placemats at Chilewich that will coordinate well with any gathering style.

2. Mix up your plates. In addition to your matching dinner plates, try adding some fancy accessory plates. Anthropologie has some great painted plates in their Kitchen accessories section, and they’re perfect for serving up some cheese and crackers or other great dishes.
