We want to share with you 8 different ways to set a dinner party table; from Pure Wow
The rules have always been the same: forks on the left, drinks on the right, conversation just slightly to the left of non-controversial.
Here, the eight best ways to switch it up in time for the holiday season.
SKIP THE TABLECLOTH
Use brown butcher paper as a placemat for a rustic look with effortless cleanup. (Got a permanent marker? The mat can double as a placecard.)
Don’t own a complete china set? No problem. Stack different and non-matching plates and bowls.
FORGET IRONING AND STARCHING
Place a folded (OK, wrinkly) linen napkin between a full-sized dish and a salad plate.
CUTLERY CAN GO ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE PLATE
Who needs two forks, anyway?
OR ABOVE THE DISHES
For a more modern look.
OR IN A JAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TABLE
Everybody grab a spoon.
DON’T FRET OVER MATCHING WINE GLASSES
Mix and match like the eclectic lady you are.
AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT FANCY CENTERPIECES
A sprig from the garden is all you need.
