Japanese table setting
Japanese table setting sounds difficult but it is quite simple.
Before diving into detail the most important part is using small bowl and plate for each meal.
The principle difference between the Japanese arrangement and the western arrangement is that in the American arrangement, the meat is always placed directly in front of the eater; in Japan, the meat is placed off to the right. Another difference is that chopsticks are placed directly in front of the eater, instead of off to the side like silverware in the western tradition.
We often add some seasonal accent to the table setting. For example, maple leaf-pattern for the fall, cherry blossom-pattern for spring, and of course the type of food we serve would vary by season.
As for the color I figured that it looks stylish when you use black and red on the table. However earthy colors such as green and yellow would also give you traditional looking that you may like.
