- Salt and pepper cellars or grinders scattered around the table make them easy to reach.
- Make homemade place cards. Use lady apples or small pears, insert a toothpick with your guests’ names in each one for an innovative place card or card holder, adding an element of interest to the table.
- Use stamps to mark cardstock with pretty designs for an instant place card solution.
- Don’t be intimidated by white china; white china is now trending and looks good with everything.
- Emerald green is the color of the year.
- Use inexpensive large leaves as chargers.
- Use random material like burlap to wrap flatware or silverware and bring a new dimension to any table setting.
- Napkin rings add a wow factor.
- Use placemats or runners even though you have a tablecloth; it adds another dimension of color, texture and level of design to your table.
- Accent color plates create an instant upgrade to any china or dinnerware set; great to use with a basic white set.
- Use an elegant bowl filled with seasonal apples as a surprisingly easy, yet show-stopping centerpiece.Placement:
