Why save your charger plates for Thanks Giving and Christmas? They looked great against the wood of the table, with fuchsia satin napkins. I also used fuchsia organza chair ties to give my different patio chairs a finished look.
I added a few tea light and votive holders so that we would have candlelight as the evening went on.
Everyone loved the table (and the dinner!), it felt fun and special, so don't wait for an excuse to treat your friends to something special. It doesn't have to cost a lot, but it feels great to make the effort!
