Dining in style

Don't you just love this idea of using old scarves to tie your napkins at the dinner table! I love this simple but colourful setting - a white starched tablecloth, thonet chairs, smart silver cutlery, small scented posies of flowers and beautifully lit metallic candle holders. It would be wonderful to spend time eating, drinking and talking with friends at a table like this.


And the food looks suitably swish (and yummy) for an event such as this...


Do you have any special things that you do when setting the table for guests? Please leave a comment...I'd love to hear from you.

You're right - great minds ...! My special table things - lots of flowers, candles and my husband's wonderful cooking. This is the most important ingredient as I can't cook. Just love the long table with the scarf napkins ties -a gorgeous and original idea.

Great idea. You can pick them up so cheap and you can really go to town with colours and themes.
