Having similar looks on all three tables creates a festive setting that's sophisticated and cohesive. Key elements stay the same, but the colors and specifics are varied. Floor-length tablecloths made of a graphic Ceylon et Cie ikat fabric in three colorways form the base. For the place settings, Kim repeated the following elements: china dinner plate, monogrammed napkin, and casual flatware. "This approach allowed us to mix and match our family pieces," Kim says. Rented rattan chargers and folding chairs offer a consistent thread from table to table and balance the strong colors.
