If you’ve got a limited budget, the best bang for your buck may be to hodgepodge your table decor. Own up to a vintage, eclectic look by mixing styles. Start with a simple wood table. We love this one with a drop leaf because it fits easily against a wall in small homes. Go crazy with mismatched chairs and antique complementary table settings. Pick some wildflowers and plop in a bright pitcher.

If you’re ready for a big change, pick a time period you’d like to replicate. We went mid-century with this incredible Danish table. All six chairs tuck neatly underneath. Set the table with geometric dishes and brightly colored napkins. Add even more color with bright red poppies or zinnias in elegant white vases.
