I liked last week’s assortment of whites, so I thought, why not use them again, tweaking here and there to give a different look.
This time around the whites are laying on our dark wood dining room table.
Surrounded by glowing candles, the look is still simple but more dramatic.
Not wanting to take anything away from the white, the color on the table will lean toward darker tones with some neutrals.
Once again the familiar square black plates from Ikea are called into play as are the spooky stems that have enlivened October tables.
For a different look, placemats are turned vertically, slightly overhanging the table edge, and napkins are done in my favorite accordion folded shape that is oh so simple and adds that little something extra to a place setting.
When all is said and done, this variation requires little modification to give a whole new feel to the table. For me setting the table is the fun part of any meal, and I especially like it when I can use the same things in a new way. How about you, do you find challenge in repeating differently?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
