1. Set The Scene

Table cloth or no table cloth, in this instance we say yes to the table cloth. It set's the tone for the rest of the arrangement. It also works as a background colour.

2. Layer It Up

Creating different dimensions makes the arrangement dynamic, this will naturally occur when using plates and bowls. Another way to achieve this is to choose a bold print plate and pair it with a neutral bowl that creates the illusion of more space and brings drama to the table.
