I’m constantly searching for creative new ways to set my table. Lately, I’ve become bored of the traditional fork on the left spoon and knife on the right table setting. From dinner parties to weddings, people are ditching the formal place settings of the past and dressing up their tables with creative and stylish utensil arrangements. Real Simple, an ever-creative source for entertaining inspiration, wows us again with cheap, easy and seriously cute ideas!
Not only are these ideas beyond adorable, but most all of them can be recreated with household items, making them cheap and eco-friendly!
Fresh Idea #1: Use retired bangles as napkin rings. This idea looks great with mis-matched colors and is the perfect solution for a party with more guests than you have matching napkins!
Fresh Idea #2: Use office supplies to dress up your table! Dot stickers from the office supply aisle of your grocery store provide a punch of color and a handy seal for napkins. And they work great for cloth or paper napkins!
Fresh Idea #3: An oldie but a goodie! Use leftover scraps of ribbon to tie together your plates & napkins.
Fresh Idea #4: Great for a breakfast or brunch soiree, use bagels for a dual purposed snack and napkin ring!
