Creativity is something I admire most when I attend dinner parties. Sure we can all put down all white round plates with white napkins and a white tablecloth, but it takes a little creativity and an eye for flair when it comes to mixing and matching dinnerware.

Of course this method isn't for everyone, but for those daring folks out there — this is for you. If you're not afraid of mixing a bright orange plate with a bright blue one or antique china with a thrift store find — we've got you covered.

Jonathan Adler Porcelain Dinnerware is perfect for mixing and matching. Whether it's with other Jonathan Adler products or not, the colors and shapes can really go with anything!
Miles Redd put a perfect table setting together and while we don't know exactly who makes the china — it's definitely inspiring. Visit any major retailer or thrift store and we can guarantee you'll find something similar to mix and match at your next party.
Crate and Barrel has a large selection of dinner plates that can easily be mixed and matched. Some of their holiday plates can be used year round, so they're a great option for mixing and matching.
Kate Spade "Larabee Road" Polka Dot Tidbit Plates were made for mixing and matching. They can mixed with each other or perfectly mixed with other plates! The chic shapes and colors make them perfect for it.
CB2 Oso dinnerware is a great example of a somewhat typical piece of dinnerware being ideal for mixing and matching. It's unique, but not too odd — making it a candidate for resting beneath another interesting salad plate!

How do you mix and match your dinnerware?
