The Table

You only need a few things to make your tablescape perfect STAT! From greenery to glasses, flatware, and plates, the table is the centerpiece of a dinner party. But that doesn’t mean making it pretty has to be time consuming or difficult. It just takes a little planning and creativity to put together a beautiful table in a flash.

Flowers are a must! No need to run out to the store, utilize greenery and flowers from your yard to create a natural and beautiful centerpiece.
