Table setting tips: Easy ways to elevate your entertaining

MILWAUKEE — Whether you’re throwing a cocktail party or a sit-down dinner, do it in style.  ___ from West Elm shares some easy ways you can impress your guests this holiday season.

Sit Down Dinner Table Setting – your secret weapon is layering!


Dinnerware: Simple white is a perfect foundation for layering.

Focus on:

  • Shape: Mix your shapes + textures.
  • Color: Accent with one color.
    • For a modern vibe, infuse an all-white dinner set with a blush or gray.
    • Go glam with a splash of blue or metallic.
  • Accessories: Chargers create an easy instant statement.
    • Elevate everyday white dishes with contrasting pewter chargers + black flatware.

Cocktail party: How to style a bar cart and build your bar!

  • Put best booze on top. If you have a bar cart, put the most crowd- pleasing drinks on top for easy access and stash backups below.
  • Organize with trays. Use them to compartmentalize glassware, booze + garnishes. (Mix different sizes!)
  • Batch your bar. Serve a signature drink (a cocktail party money saver!). Mix up a batch for easy bartending and name it for a personal touch.
  • Make it festive. Layer on an LED garland, wreath or faux botanicals as a finishing touch to your bar cart, countertop and/or buffet.
