1. Beautiful blue

Classic and fresh, blue on any table makes for the ideal look. Use these moody blue plates and underplates as well as the indigo underplates for a timeless look and add some pizazz with a few buttercup plates for that perfect Sunday brunch. Available from Tea Tree & CO

3. The conversation starter

If you want to wow your guests, these centrepieces from Rialheim are a must. Debate over whether the Dream Bowl shows off astronauts guarded with weapons or if they are men shooting dreams. Then there is the Brutus Bowl, which will put a smile on any dog lover’s face.

Apart from adding that gorgeous centrepiece, whether an elaborate floral arrangement, delicately scented candles or even quirky table décor, your new ceramic tableware can be used as the showstoppers of any table setting. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Mix and match – combine your new ceramic crockery with beautiful vintage cutlery for that perfect marriage of old and new.

2. Create a visual feast – use textured plates together with detailed printed tablecloths and serviettes. Add contemporary pieces such as platters and bowls in more subdued hues for a feast that starts with the eyes.

3. Play with texture – pair your ceramics with wood and glass pieces for a textural dynamic that will add class and style to any table setting.
