OK, maybe that wasn’t such the inadvertent slip, after all when we are hosting a dinner party that is really what in fact we are doing, setting the stage by setting a warm table. And frankly, I love doing it. It’s like putting together a killer outfit, you need the right blend of accessories, texture and palette, yet there are no rules.
First things first, an occasion like a dinner party calls for polishing the silver. We use our silver for every day, but let’s be honest…it doesn’t exactly get polished frequently, and the sheen makes a big difference.
When assembling a low linear centerpiece, you can easily grab things from around your home (actually at any height), which is what I did here with antlers and satsumas that charm with their droopy leaves. With this good start, -I only needed to buy a small amount of flowers.
Happy beginning of the season, and happy table setting!
