I tried the napkins in the glasses, then laid them beside the plates.
After I added the placemats and place settings, I didn't like the runner. Luckily, it's reversible, so I flipped it over to its solid side.
Brown, no conflicting patterns. Much better.
- The placemats were on clearance a few years ago, but I can't remember which store they came from, maybe Target.
- The plates are from the Dollar Tree.
Simple, frugal tablesetting. You've seen these items before, just not exactly like this.
- The napkins from consignment shop, flatware from consignment sale.
Often we may have questions about how to correctly set the table, how to place the napkins, placecards, glasses, the etiquette on how to "pass the salt", even. Here's a great infographic from
*Liberty Tabletop that you might want to print off as a reference.
