How to Style French Perle Dinnerware 6 Ways

We’re celebrating a milestone! Our popular French Perle pattern turns 10 this year. (They grow up so fast, don’t they?) To make this anniversary even more special, we got you a gift… Introducing our new Scallop pattern! This delightful addition to the French Perle family features feminine ruffles in a clean, elegant motif. It’s a fresh twist on the classic country look with its unique scallop pattern accented with our signature, tea-stained rim. Read on see how to mix and match French Perle Scallop with everything in our collection!

Wonder & Whimsy

Flower children: this is for you! This dainty combination of new French Perle Scallop with ice blue French Perle Groove creates a sweetly hued tablescape. But it’s the details that truly distinguish this whimsical pair. The beaded trim. Touchable ridges. Flourishing scallop edges. It all comes together to create a fresh, spring-ready look. Ground your table with stark black flatware to really make your dinnerware pop. Top it off with a glass of white wine (and a sprinkling of daisies, of course!)

Into The Woods

Think French Perle is too feminine for your taste? Think again! This rustic tablescape mixes the ruffles of Scallop with the cool greens and blues of Luna for a woodsy update. Layer your Luna bowl over your Scallop dinner plate to start. Then use Mini Luna as your salt and pepper seasoning bowls, plus the plate as a coaster for your drink. Scotch on the rocks will do juuuuuuust fine. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ll be booking our next mountain trip…

Natural Beauty

K.I.S.S.: Keep it simple, sweetheart! We love this clean, minimalist look that takes the white shades of Scallop and adds a lovely pop of pattern with French Perle Classic. Even the flatware makes a subtle statement with its sleek, 18/10 stainless steel craftsmanship and ridged banding at the handles. Rich in design, this laid-back look gets its warmth from the little things on the table: a glass of Beaujolais, tiny tealights and a nice contrast of color through a simple dinner napkin.

Bold Contrast

Play up the black, white and gold motif to make every dinner as glamorous as a New Year’s celebration. Underneath our Chelse Muse Fleur accent plate, the defined ridges of French Perle Scallop really make an impression. It’s the perfect backdrop for Chelse Muse’s matte black color and dramatic filigree pattern. Paired with Malmo Gold flatware by its side, the entire tablescape has an elevated, striking beauty. We recommend this look for date night, special events or even an engagement celebration. Don’t forget the wine!

Spring Mix

This eclectic set-up is for those who like a little bit of everything. Florals? Check. Birds? You got it! And, of course, that signature scallop. It’s pattern-on-top-of-pattern with Sprig & Vine at the forefront and an eye-catching tablecloth below the French Perle. The real show-stopper, though, is that flatware! You might not notice it right away, but look closer and you’ll see the incredible detail behind this 5-piece place setting. Designed to match back to our Pearl Platinum collection, this flatware features a triple-banded neck in sleek, 18/10 sterling silver for a simple, yet elegant look. It’s the perfect complement for this fresh match.

Boho Fringe

You’re always one to stand out…so why shouldn’t your table do the same? This look combines two French Perle favorites: the Scallop dinner plate (of course) and our Scallop bowl over top. Both have that subtle, tea-stain rim for just a hint of well-worn charm. This style is a creative blend of classic and boho with its fringe accents, Tuscany Classics wine glass and teardrop-shaped flatware from Textured Neutrals. It’s a unique tablescape with a shabby chic vibe that fits right in with your carefree, yet considerate, personality.
