Melbourne-based art director Sonia Rentsch has an eye for prop styling, as displayed in her spirited tableware series entitled Dinner Etiquette. Rentsch, with the help of photographer Scott Newett, adds life and personality to inanimate objects. Each of the still-life stylist's creations feature plates and various dining utensils in charming compositions that form representations of the potential diner's attire.

Each unique place setting is creatively arranged to simulate a refined individual's outfit and demeanor. A fork or a knife stands in seamlessly as a tie and a cup serves brilliantly as a hat. It takes true artistic talent to recognize the similarities between dinnerware and clothing and execute the design so well. It is equally important to distinguish which color combinations and shapes complement each other precisely enough to anthropomorphize the display.
