What is it that creates a beautiful table setting? The centerpiece? Linens? Dinnerware? Needless to say, a beautiful setting on the table is very inviting. I gravitate to my seat and am excited to eat and chat. However, a pile of papers sometimes gravitates to my dining room table before a crowd of dinner guests. These photos are so gorgeous because of the full effect. It’s not just the centerpiece or the flatware but all the pieces combined. I have a simple unified piece in the center of my table. It consists of a round bamboo-type material place mat with two candles and a vase filled with dried lavender from my yard. I now feel inspired to leave out dinnerware… but I need the space for my children to work on their art projects! Is your dining room table usually left casual or formal?
They are all beautiful, but there is just something about the second table setting that I really love.
I love the pop of the beautiful color with all the white in the second one.
