Last but not least, when your black and white tabletop is accented with fruit, there’s an undeniable tropical feel. Plus, fruit makes the perfect outdoor centerpiece, as shown on CB2’s Escale Cooler Cart: Today’s final featured tabletop trend is the beauty of blue and white. It’s crisp, it’s summery, and it makes a refreshing statement. Crate & Barrel is packing their spring offerings with blue and white dinnerware for both indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Our dinner plates are a discontinued pattern from Crate & Barrel (learn more about the Claire pattern here). The teal appetizer plates come from CB2 and are a gloriously affordable $1.99 apiece! We love the idea of topping each plate with a special bite, such as round crackers covered in goat cheese and pink peppercorn. Our greenery was picked up at the local market, labeled “California filler” and sold for $3 a bunch!
Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices.
