I shared a few of my go-to place setting ideas that don’t break the bank on 3TV recently, and thought I’d share a few of them here, because they were really fun and simple to put together.
Rustic Plaid: A crisp white plate counteracts the raw edges of the plaid napkin and wooden bark charger for this rustic place setting. The bright red and navy fabric is pulled together with a kraft paper napkin ring. No placemats? No problem; fold a dish towel in half!
Fall Color Scheme: Burnt orange and mustard yellow accents keep this setting feeling very fall. Spray paint mini pumpkins metallic gold for inexpensive guest favors! (Photo by Sara Nevels)
Country Kitchen: A tan circular mat gives a natural base to this tailored country kitchen feel. A striped dish towel tied with twine acts as an inexpensive napkin and balances the texture of the woven placemat.
Kraft Paper: Simplicity at its finest. Kraft paper allows for easy clean-up and makes a built-in drawing pad for little tykes. Place a recipe card at each place setting for guests to take down notes about their favorite dishes.
