A beautifully laid table can set the mood for an entire evening. From a rainbow of peacock shades to a rustic Scandinavian scheme, we assembled three color-inspired ideas to inject a little fantasy into your own holiday feast.
For an effect that’s both grand and offbeat, mismatch your most colorful pieces and add some metallic flash. Touches of wood temper the kaleidoscope.

We love a traditional bouquet as centerpiece—but wine bottles refashioned as peacock-feather vases and a silver bowl filled with grapes channel la vie bohème.
Whether you’re starting with white dishes or the ultimate Royal Copenhagen set, a few black elements provide high-contrast punch.
You really can’t go wrong.
A few choice noir accents and
playful graphic flourishes can
elevate everyday plates to
a dramatic tablescape of
light and shadow.
