White Plate Table Settings, 3 Ways

In many ways, a white plate is like your favorite white tee. It's a classic, a go-to, a never-fail option when you need something clean and good looking without the stress. And, just like your favorite white tee, it's an incredible blank slate for ensembles fitting almost any occasion.

For the holidays this year, we decided to play up a favorite set of white plates three different ways. Using color, texture, and accents from around the home and garden, we created unique looks for colorful, rustic, or glamorous table settings. The only thing that could have made these looks any better is a big, fat slice of pie!

To keep a DIY element, we created name tags for each occasion and embellished them with paint, different fonts and handwriting, and even some BeautyMarks!

To add another DIY element to your table settings, try my project from earlier this week: Tie-Dye Napkins!
