Glamorous Place Settings: Ideas & Inspiration

Maybe you want to wow your dinner guests or just add some glamor to your everyday life. Adding some shine, sparkle and pizazz to your place settings amps up dinner and is absolutely perfect for date night, especially when you feel like getting dressed up for the occasion! Or maybe you want to revamp the dining room and create an entirely new, glamorous escape for your dinner guests. Create something magical and glamorous by using some of these helpful tips … and please remember … sparkle is always glamorous. Add something shiny and you’re already on the right path!!

Take an idea or two and use the tips from all these inspirations to create your own glamorous place setting for your next dinner date, guest get-together or family dinner!!

1. Fresh, bountiful flowers.

Vibrant, lush flowers create richness. Add fresh, bright flowers to any table and you’ve add instant charm and glamor. My favorites? Poppies and peonies!

2. Glitter is glamor’s best friend.

If you want something glamorous, you must make it sparkle and shine! Add a glittering table cloth or sparkling accessories to amp up the style. Sequins never hurt the dinner table, we promise.

3. Gold is glamorous.

Gold is grandiose! And using gold colors and shades in the right way will create an instant appeal to the more upscale styles. Silver can do something glamorous as well but it’s a bit softer so our tip is to go with gold so it’s louder.

4. Add contrasting accessories.

Using different accessories shows off your creativity. Adding a pine cone, apple or a flower on your plates adds fun and instant fashion. Just be sure to balance it with something more over-the-top like sparkle or crystal.

5. Monochromatic is chic.

Using a one-color scheme is definitely glamorous and chic. Especially when you take a napkin folding class or two and can get your linens to look so crisp and clean. We would go as far to say to iron your table cloth and napkins!

6. Bold hues stand out.

Mix up colors that get noticed. Layering different and contrasting colors create a bold flair that cannot be missed. And standing out is always glamorous!

7. Wispy designs.

Intricate designs and details add fashion and punch. Again, standing out is always glamorous and an outrageously fabulous print is just that.

8. Black and white.

Black and white is classic and chic. Chic can be very glamorous in the right setting. This may be the easiest idea to pull off and is a stress free option for anyone.

9. Feathers are fierce.

Add glamor with some peacock feathers. These colors are majestic just like the bird and is very fashion-forward. Just a simple placement of the feather brings the entire setting up a notch.
