Sometimes you don’t need to over decorate or over style a tablescape. When hosting a dinner party, I want to do things a little more simple, perhaps more elegant than a cocktail party or a holiday meal. I staged this dinner party tablescape for a video shoot and couldn’t miss the opportunity to share this pretty table with you.

I felt for a simple but elegant centerpiece, a plain white bowl filled with two colors of roses would be the look I was going for. I simply picked up grocery store roses and used greenery clipped from my backyard to fill in the arrangement.
I began with a white tablecloth and topped that with gold chargers. The gold and silver flatware seemed like a perfect match, this is Towle Living Flatware in the Vienna pattern. It is so nice to have the combination of the silver and gold sometimes. This is a very affordable flatware available for $61.88 at Amazon for a service for eight.
I added these dinner plates from Home Goods that are so versatile, and tucked a black folded napkin beneath the plate.
I was so happy to have the opportunity to use some of my Miss America depression glass. This is the salad plate I added to my place settings. My mother had collected this for years and I finally have it all out of storage, so you will be seeing me use it more often in the future.
I topped my plate stack with these cute little dessert plates with a clock image on each one. These are Time Will Tell pattern by 222 Fifth. I originally bought these with the idea for using them for a New Year’s eve dinner, but they seemed like the perfect addition to my table.
In addition to my rose centerpiece I selected black tapers and placed them in a variety of crystal candlesticks I have had for years. It almost gives a little nod to Halloween with the combination of the orange and the black.
I love the contrast of the fairly neutral table setting combined with the punch of color from the centerpiece.
It is a little sad that no guests got to enjoy this beautiful table, but I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it! I can’t wait to share the videos with you all!
