Every A-lister who matters turns up dressed to the nines in a marvelous designer creations. Then there is the magical venue, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the grandest and most beautiful museums in the world. Last, but not least, there is the gorgeous decor created especially for the evening, including tablescapes. This year, the theme of the gala was couturier Charles James, and the decor matched pretty perfectly, if we do say so.

1. Start the table with the perfect floral plates.
Start with gorgeous floral plates, which will be the anchor of your table. Instead of going for plates with a floral border, hunt for plates that incorporate flowers throughout the plate’s design.

2. Opt for glassware in green.
Clear glassware is so boring. We love that this tablescape incorporates green glassware, a huge home decor trend this season.
