How to Create a Beautiful Mix and Match China Tablescape

Hey Friends!

Welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I always enjoy our time together. Don’t you just love a gorgeous table setting to entertain your friends and family? Nothing makes me happier than having every seat at my dining table full of loved ones. Typically, I am a very linear person-I like things just so. I have a great friend, Catherine from September Vintage and she loves to mix and match her China-so I gave it a go and I loved every single minute of it. Today, I am going to show you how to create a beautiful mix and match China tablescape. Come on, I’ll show you.

Table setting for ten using a beautiful mix of dinnerware and accessories.  Floral arrangements, birds nests, vintage cloches and lovely gold rimmed glasswear.
Isn’t she lovely! Isn’t she wonderful!

Do you ever mix and match your table settings? I generally like every single place setting to match, that is until I met Catherine from September Vintage. “September Vintage is a carefully curated collection of vintage dinnerware meant to be assembled as mix and matched sets of five-piece place settings  It is her mission to breathe new life into existing treasures by mixing up sets to create unique, one of a kind collections.”

  1. Oh, I love your mix and match place settings! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! Pinned!

  2. Renae, I absolutely love mix and match dinnerware. How you style the table looks stunning. One of the small blue rimmed plate with the roses in the center, I have some tea cups that match that plate. I picked them up years ago in an antique store. Loved this post!

    I always find beautiful tablescapes intriguing and enjoy setting my own for luncheons and dinner parties. While the mix and match patterns were very pretty, how do you use them? There are far too many pieces stacked to be practical (unless you have a butler whisking away courses lol). Do you set a table and leave it as part of your decor? I have a friend that does this, but personally it’s not for me. Just curious?

    1. If I am having a dinner party. I will serve whatever goes in or on the top dish first. Oftentimes, I set the table for pure enjoyment-there is definitely NOT a butler here.

  4. All gorgeous! I love that analogy about the kids – you’re right, it’s impossible to choose a favorite! 🙂 Thanks for the great inspiration!

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
