Consider using your good china more often than on special occasions. Our beautiful pieces should be used not stored away! Make your china feel more relaxed by using simple tablecloths or placements and use a mixture of every day glasses and silverware.

Update your dining room linens – including tablecloths, place mats, table runners and napkins. This is a great way to inject new color or style into your room. Use the color palette from adjoining rooms to help select your colors.

Create a stunning, yet simple centerpiece for your table. Clusters of beautiful items create amazing centerpieces. Gather a large amount of vases, candles, greenery or silver. Use only one type of item, or mix them all. Group then down the center of your table, on a lovely table runner, and fill vases with fresh greens from your yard. Use one color candle to unify the display.
