A mix of old and new, natural and modern materials, gives this dining table a cozy rustic feel.
Try something new with your serviettes (Ikea Marknad – http://www.ikea.com/no/no/catalog/products/00286583/), make a knot and finish it off with a sprig of eucalyptus or other greenery. Dig deep into your cupboards and find a mix of different wine glasses and small vases. You will be surprised to see how many greenery you can pick from your garden and safe yourself a lot on the extra expense of buying flowers! If you have a beautiful table surface, skip the table cloth, show case that beauty by adding placemats in beautiful textures. I have opted for natural grassy mats (http://sostrenegrene.com) at a very affordable price. This was a rather formal dinner party and I opted to print the menu´s explaining each course.
Don´t forget the candles, there is nothing that gives atmosphere more than the soft light of candles.
