Are you hosting a dinner party, throwing a birthday bash or creating the perfect atmosphere for a gathering of friends? It’s not always easy to find tasteful decorating themes that aren’t too…well…theme-y! Today our goal is to inspire you with these fun yet classy entertaining motifs.
From party tables that make a big statement to subtle spreads with a touch of festivity, the ideas below will inspire you with their creativity and flair. If sticking with a color scheme is too rigid for your taste, opt for an eclectic table that manages to shine without being too matchy-matchy. If you’re after a polished spread, enjoy coordinating every last detail. Look for your party personality in the images that follow:
Our first featured table looks best in the moonlight–or shall we say candlelight? Perfect for a nighttime gathering, a clever choice of colors and lighting brings the look to life. Opt for a golden tablecloth and roses in white and blush. Light candles of various heights and watch as your decorations dance in the shimmering shadows of evening.

A Vision in Green
Sometimes a strong color says it all! Lime green is a vibrant shade that adds power to a party table, especially when you accent the spread with verdant spider mums. To maximize the effect, choose a tablecloth in an alternate shade of green, but repeat the lime hue in an edible treat such as candy. [from Caroline and Even Photography via Chic Sweets]
A Sunny Table
Celebrating the sunshine of a bright day is a great way to create a glowing party atmosphere. Nothing echoes the sun’s energy like bright yellow flowers! To make these blooms pop, surround them with white table decor. For a unique touch, use pin-cushion protea as place card holders, as shown below. [photo by She-n-He Photography via Camille Styles]
