Off To Market Recap: Everyday Table Setting

Feb 7 2007 - 3:13pm


The table setting on my kitchen table changes with the seasons (and sometimes my mood!). It's easy to update your table's look by getting a new set of placemats. I have hosted quite a few impromptu dinner parties lately and my winter set is starting to show wear (oil/wine stains, etc) and tear, so I asked you to help me find a new tablescape. I want four wintery placemats in sober tones. You saved your placemats and centerpiece accessories in the Yum Market [1] and tagged them with the keyword, Everyday Table Setting [2]. Here's how I'll overhaul my table's look:

Rubialala [3]'s beautiful white mirrored placemat [4] will serve as the new focal point of the table. At first I wanted to use these as the main placemats but realized it's too snowy white and will be best when placed in the center of my table.

To see how I complete the transformation,



On top of the white placemat, to finish up the centerpiece, I'll arrange 2-4 of these black candles [5] that rubialala discovered (thanks for your help girl!). I really like the shorter, stubby ones because they won't prevent me from seeing my mom who sits across from me during dinner.



In front of the 4 chairs, I'll place the black and white patterned placemats [6] that I found at Neiman Marcus [7]. Throw in a beautiful vase filled with red roses and I'm finally ready for my next last minute dinner party.
