Spring brings changes it stays light later, the temperature warms, he world blooms! Dinners outside are the best, let’s set the table!
Basics Are Always the Key
There is no table that can’t be set with basic white dishes.
Layering is key to making basics shine.
I have owned tons of white dishes, even in my early 20’s white dishes were my go to.
Currently these white dishes are my go to, large dinner plates, salad plates, and white bowls.
These dishes are perfect for mixing and matching with other plates, for added pops of color.
I love to think outside of the box for my layers, and use the unexpected.
Here I used these terra cotta saucers as chargers, they are a staple for my tables int he spring and summer.
Ok if I let you in on a little secret do you promise not to judge?
While these napkins might look like lien, they aren’t and you will never guess where they came from.
My fun repurposed napkin ties, get the details and how to on them here!
How can you have a meal without silverware, its like jewelry for your table.
I have so much silverware, but I always reach for the same ones because they can go in the dishwasher!
This set of silverware is my favorite so much so I have it in gold and silver.
What dinner table is complete without a wine glass, even if your serving lemonade to teenagers the glasses make it special!
The Finishing Touches
Every table need a centerpiece.
For this table center piece I used a vintage chicken feeder I found for $8.
I shared the details on how I turned the chicken feeder into a planter here!
Every table needs a little twinkle, and these candles are my favorite go to.
They are so inexpensive and you can make a huge impact with them!
The Most Important Part
Yes, I love to set beautiful tables to make memories around.
The most important part about a beautiful table is the people who are around it.
Don’t sweat the details of setting the table, enjoy the smiles, laughs, and stories told around it.
