Home : Ten Extra Cute Ways To Set Your Table
Last night, while Nikki was on camera here doing the first JustB Spreecast, I was out having dinner with friends. It was very casual and lovely and delicious. We ordered in and and ate really GOOD Indian home delivery at her kitchen counter. As we ate, our hostess brought out linen napkins for us to wipe our mitts and faces on. I thought that was a cute touch, nicely at odds with the plastic containers our dinner came in!
It got me thinking about napkins and candle and cutlery and things. It made me think a lot about how nice it is to eat casually, but also how nice it is to set the table too. I think it was the linen napkins that triggered a bit of an ‘I-love-real-napkins-I-want-to-set-the-table!’ moment. Or maybe it was this post about eating outdoors. Or perhaps it was the comments on THIS post about The Family Table. Regardless of which, I want to talk about splayds and sporks and spoons. I want to think about table runners and napkins and place mats and flowers. I want to chat table coverings like brown paper or vintage linen or even rustic-none-at-all.
I want to set the table!
Here are ten cute ways to do it. Maybe you could share how YOU set your table, in the comments below? (Maybe you don’t set it, and that is okay too, we can be twins!)
Do you set the table? Do you know what a cruet set is? Do you like things informal or do you like to fancy it up? Do you think there is a difference between sporks and splayds?
PS : Thanks for the lovely dinner & the inspiration, Kirsty!
