Classic Yet Contemporary

This table setting combines timeless details with modern elegance and works from season to season. Place the light gray Rachael Ray Dinnerware Set next to dark burgundy napkins for a beautiful contrast. To brighten the tablescape, add some gold touches with champagne flutes, a metallic votive holder set, or brass terrariums (use them to add some greenery to the table, or place tea lights inside). Fresh-cut flowers introduce a pleasant scent, and these faux eucalyptus sprigs can fill out the arrangement if real plants aren't available.

Retro Whimsy

For a vintage-inspired tablescape with a playful touch, you can't go wrong with this look. Set the table with Rachael's Little Hoot Dinnerware Set (Fun fact: "Little Hoot" was Rach's nickname as a child, which is why she loves owls!). There are so many colors to tie into your place settings; these orange salt and pepper shakers from Rachael would fit in beautifully. Tinted, rustic tumblers add a subtle pop of color and mellow the retro theme. Wood accents, like in the napkin rings and flatware, are great pairings for this table setting. To top off the look, use your delicious food as the centerpiece by plating appetizers or desserts on these beautiful, reclaimed wood trays.

Sophisticated Eclectic

Casual yet sophisticated, this eclectic tablescape features pieces with a unique, one-of-a-kind feel. The Rachael Ray Cucina Sun Daisy Dinnerware Set includes subtle floral patterns with a hand-painted look. To draw out the blue from the stoneware plates, pair with this aqua table runner, and place yellow stitched napkins on top for a sunny accent full of charm. Keep the nature theme going with a twig-inspired flatware collection. The slightly curved handle on this knife set adds just a touch of whimsy. Pink glassware, like these antique-inspired tumblers, keep the table setting light and fresh. Finish the look with a round, bubble glass vase. It's perfect for displaying fresh daisies to complement the dinnerware.

Rustic Chic

Warm white dinnerware, mixed materials, and Mason jars are just a few staples of farmhouse style. Start with the Rachael Ray Cucina Dinnerware Set in a "ricotta white" hue to set the table. Pair with this cream-colored jug so guests can refill their water glasses during the meal. To add some industrial flair to your rustic tabletop, this black flatware set features clean lines and subtle hammered detailing along the handles. Mason jar-inspired vases are a great way to decorate the table, and this particular set is eco-friendly—each piece is blown from recycled glass. Warm up the setting by interspersing natural elements like fresh flowers or leafy garland. This decorative sprig and hydrangea bundle are a quick way to add greenery to your tablescape if you don't have time to pick up fresh plants.
