Table setting isn’t something that I was ever taught to do at home growing up. We lived a somewhat typical chaotic lifestyle in those formative years, but perhaps not so typical of my generation as a child was that my mother was a working mom. As a result, dinners were not informal, except for holidays when all of the relatives came to our home to dine. So table decorating was not something that I recall learning, like much of what I’ve learned as an adult it’s been self taught. Sometimes I feel like Wonder Woman (sans cape) who can teach herself anything and sometimes like a buffoon or perhaps a “Jill of all trades and master of none”! I do enjoy setting a beautiful table when I have the occasion to and I’m sharing a couple of tips today.
How To Layer Plates In A Tablescape
TABLE SETTING IDEAS
A SETTING FOR FALL last year mixing up a double stack of plates in white and an unusual lavender. They are old French ironstone plates and I treasure these pieces! On the compote in the center of the table I use one PLATE CHARGER to create a flat surface for the heavy VELVET PUMPKINS. I hope that you enjoyed the post and as always, I’m here for any questions. Have a great week ahead!
