Designer Anna Weatherley has the BEST ideas when it comes to your dinnerware. She believes that your table should be a reflection of a garden – all beautiful colors and flowers mixed together. Shop from a variety of dinner plates, bread & butter plates, dessert plates, and much more.
Bring the outdoors IN
All tables need a beautiful centerpiece. At The Pink Daisy, we recommend getting a fantastic vase and a few fresh flowers. Remember- keep the arrangement low so that guests can see each other at all points of the table. Check out this beautiful Caskata Arcadia Bud Vase for some inspiration.
Light some candles
