Table Art

With summer fast approaching (although it feels like mid-summer out there today!), we wanted to compile some inspiration for hosting dinner --- for a special family night in, or an outdoor dinner party with friends.  We hope you will feel inspired to use your current dishware in new & fresh ways, or to add just a few details that have a big impact.

Until Soon,
Sara & Pam

Simple Add-On Ideas:
-Mix colors with neutrals for impact
-White dishware & clear glassware match everything!
-Use basic silverware & add details (flowers, ribbon, embellishments)
-Flowers are the perfect addition to any table.  Make your budget go further by grouping into smaller arrangements, or simply cut some greenery from your yard.  Any natural elements add charm to the table.
-Name cards & fabric napkins/linens are simple ways to make any meal feel special
-Use part of the meal for decorating--- bread, herbs, cheese, an apple or a peach, etc.

A sweetly written reminder of table-setting etiquette (that's sometimes meant to be broken, too!).
Bright table runners add pattern & instant-appeal.

If ever in doubt, choose flowers.  A fragrant wreath, bud vases filled 
with color, or simple flower confetti.
