Even when you own great china, you can get tired of the same old table settings day after day, especially if you like to entertain. If you want to give your table a fresh look, there are a few accessories you can add that are inexpensive, but will help you create a new look for your table.
1. Charger plates- Charger plates are larger plates that your china sits in. These are very inexpensive, compared to the cost of buying new plates. You can choose chargers in solid colors, like silver and gold. You’ll also find charger plates available in holiday patterns so that you can create a holiday tablescape using plain plates.
2. Napkin rings – Many housewares stores carry a wide variety of unusual napkin rings, suitable for every holiday and every theme and dinner party style. Napkin rings are like new jewelry for your table, and can really dress up your table, or give it a fun twist.
3. New linens. Choosing new tablecloths and cloth napkins can completely update your table’s look, even with the same old china and glassware. The styles available in linens are absolutely endless. Choose from festive Tuscan patterns to create an old world style table, or go for a pure white linen for a fancy restaurant effect. To make your table look unique, choose cloth napkins that coordinate with, rather than match, your tablecloth.
With a few simple changes, you can give your dinner table a brand new look and feel. Adding a few great accessories at a time will allow you to collect a wide variety of linens and accessories over time. Before you know it, you’ll be able to create multiple different looks any time you please. You’ll never be tired of your table scape again.
