Get inspired to break from the same old tablescape tradition at your next party by paring down colorwise.

Hence, what makes the latest trend in tablescaping so interesting—going all out in a single color. Monochrome entertaining is the new way to infuse a dining experience with color and richness while also managing to do something unique.

Red: If you want to make a vibrant, bold statement, red is an obvious way to go. We love the white and wood accents to offset the heaviness of this color.

Orange: Surprise, orange can look adorable—and not in a three year old's bedroom kind of way—when used in a tablescape. We love balancing this feisty color with simple accents.

Blue: Moody blue is festive and lavish in varying shades across a table.

Purple: Highly saturated shades of purple are rich and intriguing, perfectly complementing summer blooms.
