Wintertime might be prime hosting season, but new West Elm dinnerware will inspire a festive spring dinner party or two. 

With the help of floral-print napkins and colorful scalloped dinner plates among other delightful buys, your table will feel fresh, inviting, and well-prepared for the season ahead. We're already dreaming about menus with these fab new arrivals. 

As you start to map out your social calendar for the milder weather, we highly recommend adding these brilliant hosting essentials to your collection. 

New West Elm dinnerware that channels spring vibes

There's a lot to love with these fun dinnerware offerings, but you'll want to execute a  styling plan, otherwise you'll over or under-buy and have a hard time organizing the cabinets in your small kitchen

To make sure your dining table looks cohesive, there are a few shopping rules to follow, according to the pros. 

"Choose a theme or color palette that aligns with the celebrant's taste or the season," says Jennifer Allen, micro wedding specialist. "Your color scheme guides linens, dinnerware, and other decor choices. Garden party? Think greens, pastels, and neutrals."

And we found plenty of items that made us green with envy from West Elm's offerings. It's all about making a statement and paying attention to the little things, according to Jennifer.

"Small details wield great influence — from napkin placement to glassware choice and food presentation, each element should harmonize to form a cohesive and inviting tablescape," she says. 

While we encourage you to add flair with items such as West Elm's Kuba metal tapered candle holders and chic West Elm organic shaped marble serveware, creativity really shines on the table when multiple textures are in play.

"Layering lace or natural linens can add a touch of texture," Jennifer says. "Ensure your dinnerware complements the overall design, whether it's vintage, modern, or classic."
