Tempted to match dark colors with gold accents? Try silver instead. It will give your tablescape a "weekend in the Cotswolds" feel that's surprisingly fresh and modern. This refined setting keeps its cool with pewter-banded plates, a tartan runner, and wild centerpieces wispy enough not to thwart across-the-table conversations. To get the look, loosely cluster chocolate cosmos, ranunculus, hellebores, clematis, andromeda, and spirea branches in horn and metallic vessels.
