Throwing together a composed party is no easy feat, especially if you’re planning it yourself. Whether it’s a wedding, a retirement party or a just-for-fun spring soiree you’re planning, below are some helpful tips to ensure that your event is stunning and well coordinated.
You Can’t Go Wrong With Metallics
Metallic dishes add an instant touch of luxuriousness to any party. Whether you’re more of a silver or a gold person, metallic plastic dishes look sophisticated without breaking the bank. Pair them with classic white or ivory accents for an instantly refined place setting.
If you’re not ready for full on metallic plastic dishes (like plates and cups) consider making the accents the metallic instead. Silver or gold plastic cutlery can add a deluxe feel to a classic table setting, while maintaining easy clean up. Same goes for metallic plate chargers or napkin rings.
Pair Soft Pastels With One Another
Pastels are tried and true for spring. Soft purple, blue, pink or yellow are perfect for almost any spring event. Whether it’s a wedding, a garden party or a baby shower, pastels are easy to co-ordinate and always right on trend during the season.
Want a little more zip in your party theme? Try pairing pastels with pattern, such as a floral, to liven them up a bit! These rose-themed paper napkins would be perfect!
Nothing Matches Like Black and White
Black and white is a classic pairing for a reason. If you’re going extra formal for your event (say it’s a black tie event), black and white is a perfect theme that to keep the focus on your event, while maintaining a polished and professional look.
If you’re sticking to a classic black and white theme, there’s room to have a little fun with the plastic dishes themselves. Choose fun or uniquely shaped plastic dishes that will add a little flare to an otherwise simple table setting.
Match a Neutral With a Bright
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to neutrals – they’re neutral for a reason, they work with everything! But why not dress up a neutral a bit with a bright splash of colour. Think black and cream with a splash of red or turquoise to liven up the party. Not ready to fully commit to a bright colour that might take over your party? Try making your bright accents plastic plate chargers or napkins that won’t draw focus from the main meal.

Balance Patterns With Solids
Balance is the key to incorporating bold patterns into your table setting décor. Make sure to pair them with solids and neutrals so they don’t overwhelm guests. Too many clashing patterns can quickly become an eyesore. Sticking to classics, and throwing in a funky accent, such as a bright patterned paper napkin , is the right balance of fun and timeless.
