Everyday Tables

If I could pick one thing I like doing most in the house, it would be creating table settings. That beats the heck out of vacuuming or doing laundry.

The dining room table is always a good canvas. I don’t think too much about what I’m going to do and never know from where inspiration is going to come. Here, for example, it was a brightly colored tablecloth. Rather than use it to cover the table, I folded it as a table runner and turned back the corners to show off the colors.

With candles and much used containers of not real flowers added the table decor waits for whatever happens next.

When it became time to prepare for a gathering with friends, it was a piece of cake. All purpose white dishes are on floral chargers along with accessories that pick up the colors in the centerpiece. I like doing a little something with napkins so I turned the corners back to mimic the runner.

The finished table is a simple, no fuss one that welcomes thoughts of spring.

Never let it be said that with a few changes a completely new look can be created. This time around there is lots of color and texture.

I happen to have plates of many colors and they are perfect with those in the runner. Texture is provided by the straw mats.

With napkins folded accordion style and salad plates found some time ago at World Market each place is a little different.

Who knows how many more changes will occur, but for this time around, the setting is fun with those touches of whimsy that characterize many of my tables.
