I like to put one colorful placemat in the center of the table, along with colorful salt and pepper shakers, decorative napkin holder and a small candleholder that holds an LED candle on a timer.  It all can stay on the table during meals, and we have a candlelit dinner every night.

During the process of registering, I’ve found that Bed, Bath, & Beyond has EVERYTHING you could ever think of and then some. I would browse their stuff online until you find something that speaks to you. Maybe start with placemats,  candle, or some decortive item and base the rest on that. 

Maybe we could provide more help if you gave us description of your style or the rest of your home’s decorations?

Were building our house right now so this will change once we get in our house and I can make it more of a home. This table will become our breakfast area and I haven’t exactly figured out what I’m going to do with it!

Thank you!! I seriously have a problem with grey and blue….it’s pretty much all over the house lol. I love those dishes in your pic!! The table was originally a cherry color and was my moms from the early 80s that I redid to fit us better!

You can see my rug better in this pic. I didn’t have the curtains up in this pic but they’re white with a grey patter and a tiny bit of blue! (Ignore the computer chair, we didn’t have the desk in the office yet lol)…and our little fluffy dog.

If you want to have a fruit bowl on the table, maybe do a nice ceramic one since you’ll already have lots of lovely matching wood in the kitchen. BB&B has lots of options under “serving bowls.” Since you’ll probably need a fairly large bowl for fruit, I would just leave it at that. If you get a nice looking bowl, the produce itself will become part of the decoration. Maybe a couple of tall candlesticks on either side of it if you really want more details?

lexirose05202016:  If you use a tray, it can unite separate pieces like a fruit bowl and a vase. When there’s just the two of you, you can push it to one side. When you have guests, you can use the tray to easily move it off the table.

ps if you plan to have an area rug, remember that it needs to be large enough so that the legs of the chairs are still on the rug when the chairs are pushed back. It will drive you crazy, if th legs of the chair catch on the rug every time you get up from the table.

This might be an alternative: to keep a “clean” look for your table, choose a piece with more impact, and the rest as complements. In this case, the lazy susan is the element with most visual impact, and is truly useful (might hold salt and pepper shakers, oil and vinegar dispensers, and if  you’d like, a simple flower vase).
