Garden Table Setting for Spring


There is such a wide range of entertaining styles out there.  Some think that entertaining should be about crystal, china and lit candles, and some think about a big crowd of family around the island munching on dips using paper plates and napkins.  I like to live somewhere in between - I think most of us do.  I love sitting down to a pretty table, but I don't like to feel like it is fancy or stiff.  I love crowding around the island, munching on snacks, but I still like pretty platters and artful displays.  

I think at the end of the day, we all want to just feel like family when we're invited to someones home.  We want to feel casual enough to linger in the kitchen while helping ourselves to wine, but we also love that feeling of sitting down to a thoughtfully set table.  This setting is all of those worlds wrapped up into one.   It is a bit rustic with terra-cotta pots right on the table, but elegant with fresh gingham checked napkins and fresh flowers.  This is a table that could easily host adults or kids for an Easter meal.

Notice how wide and long the generous gingham runner is?  I love this look.  It is not thin and whimsy, but wide and generous without the formal feel of a tablecloth.  I have kept this runner on my table all month - it really lightens the feel of our dark wood table, exactly what I want for spring when this area can feel a little heavy.

This is a lovely gift to your guests, or a hostess gift if you are headed to someone's home this spring.  I love this for a teacher or birthday gift, as well.
