Detract from the mismatched plates with creative DIY table linens. Sew your own brightly colored cloth napkins and embellish with fabric paint.
Mismatch the chairs along with the dinnerware. Take the mismatched look to chairs and add a collection of different styles, all at similar heights.

Design a central theme. Even though none of the plates match add some constant and similar colors. Notice the blues and yellows 0n the table, along with the little white owls at each place setting.
Use vintage bottles for a tablescape. Vintage and mismatched bottles filled with flowers make a great tablescape for mismatched dinnerware.
