Change of seasons and holidays seem to signal the need to change home decor accessories, and there is no easier way than to indulge in inviting table settings. Table runners, centerpieces, napkins, placemats, napkin rings, and table linens offer a variety of options, and they are interchangeable year after year. http://www.pier1.com/catalog/browse/493.902.table-runners  Setting the scene of your next gathering says volumes about your personal creativity, along with culinary delights that are a warm welcome to family and friends. http://karenleeartgallery.com/contactus.aspx

Artisans of tableware use numerous different images and palettes to grace a table. For example, a still life that’s subtly shaded, richly detailed, gives colorful options of the season. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/tabletop/table-linens/

With the changing trends to entertain in the home with “home chefs” showing their culinary talents, makes the table a place of celebration and extended pleasure. Conversation time and an inviting setting formulate for a wonderful memory making time.

At a recent dinner, in a friend’s home, I enjoyed a pleasant memory evening. The simplicity of a white linen tablecloth, a centerpiece of a variety of antique white assorted sized lit candles, and natural round gray stones scattered amid the candles, celebrated a natural setting. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tableking-Exclusive-Dinnerware-at-Affordable-Prices/216503202481?sk=app_2309869772

A few points to consider when creating the artful table setting:

  • For everyday use, nothing beats placemats for added color and texture to a table setting
  • Unconventional table coverings such as antique quilts and silk scarves are all possibilities
  • Decorative paper napkins, or fabric napkins, are especially useful for theme decorating
  • Glassware can add impact to a table setting, with a variety of shapes, styles and patterns to choose from
  • Floral centerpieces, assortments of candles and arrangements of fruit, all are creative elements to bring the visually appealing table together
  • A clear glass vase with fresh blooms from your garden, or float candles in top. On the bottom of the vase, add sea glass pieces, colored stones, marbles, seashells, to create colorful interest
