I just had to post this, I was browsing the web and found this really beautiful table setting. Granted this is for a bridal shower, but that doesn't mean you can't incorporate some of the design into your own homes or apartments. The reason these plates work so well together is that they all incorporate gold, but not in a way that overwhelms you. The gold is used to ornately decorate the teacup, saucer, charger, and smaller serving plates.
What I love about this is that its so colorful! I love the use of the pastel pinks and blues that are accented by the richer saturated colors in the design detail. When decorating your dining room table or your dinner table, you have the ability to incorporate a lot of color. You just need to keep it within a theme and not go overboard.
