For casual events, one needs just a basic table setting: a placemat, cutlery (fork, knife, and spoon), a dinner plate, a water glass, and a napkin.
This blog will suggest you a few table setting decor themes which you can use while planning your house party:
If you plan to celebrate Indian festivals at home like Diwali, you can always go for Indian decor for your table. Using handcrafted placemat and table mats, take Barni (Pickle Jar) and place it on the table. Add Indian flowers like Marigold, Roses, etc and put it inside these jars. You can also use brass cutleries and candle stands to give a more traditional look. To keep it bright and intense use of yellow and orange flowers with green napkins.
2. Romantic Red:
Plan a special date for your loved one at your home with an alluring decor. You can decorate it with red roses and keep them inside small vases. Place white candles while setting them a little far from the flowers but keep it little far from the flowers, Mason jars and put some white petals in it and floating candles and black table cover as your base. Add a small frame on the table which has a picture of the couple. You can use a silver candle stand to make it more romantic. To add a small element, you can place 1-2 roses on the plates and make it look attractive.
3. All Greenery :
To give a fresh and natural look, you can go all green with the decor. You can make a nice green leaves garland on the table which goes down to the floor. Add lots of copper candles and potted plants on the table. Use leaf as your placemat, leaf printed table cloth and white pillar candle stand to give a unique look. Take pineapple as your focal point on the table and place it in the middle.
