How to Tie it All Together

Placing napkins of the same color on each setting will tie the settings together, even though all the china is mismatched. Also, keeping the wine and water glasses the same is a great way to tie everything together. If you’re lucky, you might find china available in your wedding colors, but if not, it will still look fantastic.
