Setting a table outdoors is one of summer's greatest pleasures. We love a contrast of textures: natural rattan chargers, bubble glass in cool, fresh hues, burlap runners, gleaming wood bowls. Just add the sunshine! We can practically taste the lemonade. One Kings Lane

Update!

With the much of the country complying with stay at home orders and adjusting to unnatural concepts like social distancing, now more than ever, we should be taking pleasure in our homes. This is the time to spruce up your most used rooms and to take advantage of any outdoor space you might be lucky enough to have access to. And it is definitely the perfect opportunity to toss your ratty rattan and replace it with quality pieces for a fraction of the retail cost. Just because you are at home bound does not mean you cannot entertain yourself! Continue Reading →

How to Get Ready to Party >> 5 Home Entertaining Essentials

This morning we were inspired by an article we stumbled upon an article on PopSugar addressing how to get ready to party and what exactly guests notice in your home.  All of us who entertain at all know that one of the most stressful aspects of home entertaining, whether you are hosting a dinner party or your child's first birthday party, is getting your house in shape for your guests.  Yes, you do need to clean but focus your time and efforts on making your bathrooms and kitchen spotless. Otherwise, shut the doors to rooms your guests do not need access to.  As for the rest, we sorta agree there are generally just a handful of things your guests will notice about your home.  No one will say – wow she so needs a new sofa or her carpet really deserves a cleaning.  Your home decor is almost irrelevant so long as the rooms your guests see are tidied up and lack clutter.  You can transform any room from drab to fab by implementing a few of these simple home entertaining essentials.

Danny Meyer Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas

Thanksgiving Paper Placemat Table Setting Ideas

Update!

Although the original autumn paper table setting placemats sold out long ago, we just found these very similar Farmers Market Paper Placemat Pads (and no, they are not limited time offerings – they are available all year round!)

We recommend you combine these stylish-yet-rustic paper placemats, paper napkins, and paper table runners, each adorned with a motif of fresh garden vegetables, to create a stunning Thanksgiving table.  The combination will result in the oft sought but hard to achieve sense of sophistication and quality that comes across as effortless.

Although I haven't completely made up my mind, with 50 relatives ringing the doorbell at exactly 1:00 on Thanksgiving Thursday, I am very tempted to go with this design aesthetic. The idea would be to combine the causal elegance of this  kraft paper design with my collection of fine china, Fiesta dinnerware and crystal stemware. Not only does this design blend seamlessly into my industrial modern home decor, I think it will make re-setting the tables in between courses so much easier – I can just snatch up the dirty placemats, toss them in the trash and add a fresh mat at each place setting  Plus, I could pull the look all together with copper colander centerpieces (filled with fresh seasonal vegetables, and cacti or ivy filler) and chalkboard chic food tags. Since I serve so many different dishes to satisfy a vast array of dietary restrictions, I think it might be helpful to label them all so individuals can choose whether or not to partake. And while I am thinking about it, wouldn't it be great to serve Moscow Mules in copper cups as a festive drink to visually compliment the centerpieces?
