10 Steps to dressing your table. (repost)
Step 1. Here I have a plain white table with no chairs around it in my kitchen nook. Plain and simple let's dress it up a bit with some chairs.Step 2. Add Chairs. These are the chairs that I normally have around my table. Not my favorite because they are kind of small. See how the backs of the chairs barely peek over the top of the table. Step 3. Change out chairs and add a simple centerpiece! I brought in my black dining room chairs to show you the difference. I really like the size of the chairs and the color contrast....Plus they have a coordinating fabric on the seats.These chairs seem to ground the room better don't you think?
I will have to get some new dining room chairs! he heStep 4. Add some more interest to the centerpiece. I added a little bird house and some appetizer plates. Step 5. Elevate! I brought out my Christmas footed cake plate to add some height to the table and stacked some dinner plates and some green salad plates plus the cute appetizer plates (you will see that in a second) all under a glass dome. I also added some black candle holders.
Step 6. Floral! Add some colorful silk flowers to the edges just to give it a spring look!
See those cute appetizer plates! So precious under the glass dome!
They have prominence now. Step 7. Texture!...I added a piece of burlap for texture and color...plus I added the white dinner plates and silverware.
Step 8. Layer! Add lime green salad plate and appetizer plate.
Step 9. Napkins and Napkin Rings! Add white napkins and my cute white napkin rings! You can still get them for $1.00 each and if you buy a set of 12 I will give another set of four for free any color (Pink, white, blue or red)
