10 charming table settings to inspire your next dinner party or event. Table settings are one of my favorite things about entertaining, but I know they can be a hassle.

I always tell people that setting the table doesn’t have to be extravagant… simple votives, a few flowers and one personalized detail is all you need. You can mix and match vintage glasses and even silverware.

Add personal touches by printing out photos as place cards or use unique napkin rings like the leather ones below.

A handwritten or printed menu is a nice touch too and doesn’t take much time. I bet you can create a very charming setting using the items in your home and flowers from your garden!

  1. I adore these! I’m entertaining today but there will only be 3 of us and I feel like it’s over-kill to do something so beautiful for so few, especially because the people I’m hosting for don’t have table scapes in their culture… I’m still bookmarking this post though! 🙂 xoxo

  2. Cool inspiration pictures!

    I love parties, but I like even more prepared the tables and all the details. My next event is on Christmas and I am already taking ideas for table decoration.

    Last year I designed a very nice menu with flowers, this year maybe I use one of your pictures for inspiration.

    Thank you !!!



  3. Hi! This is sort of a random question but I was checking out your Mother’s Day tea party post that you linked to above and I love the teacups that you used. Where are they from?
