The Perfect Setting: A Guide For Place Settings

At Amanda's House of Elegance, we are big fans of entertaining and pulling out all of the tricks for our guests. Dinner parties are one of these occasions to dress up the table and play with different textures, colours and metals. We have assembled six different place settings that can be both dressed up or down based on the occasion. We take pride in our Canadian made and designer label pieces and you will too. The best part is that all of these pieces are available downtown Kingston at Amanda's House of Elegance. Hopefully you will find some inspiration. 

This beautiful shimmery and pink set would be perfect for a girls night in, or really any cozy dinner experience. The gold shimmer placemat mixed with scalloped edged plates and a gold rimmed bowl give a very whimsical and feminine touch. These combined with an ombre pink glass with a gold rim are a match made in design heaven. 

The soft blue and grey colour palette of this set make for a perfect combination for everyday use. Pairing this set on a white placemat will allow the set itself to be a bold statement and keep the eclectic look to the place setting subtle. The grey wine and glass set are the perfect pair to this already watery and calm setting. 

These bird silhouette placemats allow for a casual and relaxed ambience to any table scape. This is very much an everyday place setting and could be used with a variety of different glasses and napkins to change the look easily. These linen napkins are a beautiful match and can be used over and over. 

This place setting is definitely an eclectic grouping of a variety of sets. Pairing together different textures, patterns and colours gives interest and makes the entire setting more casual and lived in. These glass plates and bowls are the perfect way to add interest without taking away from the other pieces. 

At Amanda's House of Elegance we are loving mixed metals as a trend that will definitely be sticking around. This place setting is the perfect way to ease into the trend in a classy and sophisticated way. These silver rimmed plates are stunning on their own but the gold rim on this bowl is the perfect contrast. The silver coral napkin ring is a great piece to add to any setting but we love how it contrasts well here. 

These gold chargers are stunning! The scalloped, almost floral-looking edges are the perfect way to fancy up your dinner party. This is definitely a fancier setting, but it can easily be taken apart and set with a variety of placemats, napkins, and accents. We love the refined elegance of this setting and we know your guests will feel like royalty. 

Head into Amanda's House of Elegance to take a peek at all the elements of these settings. Even better, everything in the store is currently tax free. It’s the perfect excuse to pick up any of these stunning pieces.
