Linen napkins – Make your table look as if you have spent hours designing the layout. The simplest touch can add the most elegant look to the table. Use items that you find in your loft or buy cheap from a grocery store. Correct placement of just a few key points can turn the table into a masterpiece. Set your table as you normally do for dinner, but instead of folding napkins and placing them next to the plates, fold them and place them inside the water cups. Place a single flower between the glass and the napkin.
Chrysanthemums and daisies are edible flowers and work best for this decor idea. Next to each glass, place a small knob vase with water so that guests can put their flowers in them. These also make sweet party favors. Stack old hat boxes in the middle of the table and wrap the stack with a single ribbon, tie a bow on top.
Place baskets of colored eggs along the center of the table Spread ribbon curls around the baskets. Use pastel linen napkins to complete the simple table decorations. For a summer table, use light-colored sand buckets to make a statement. Fill them with sand and plastic beach tools, and place seashells between the baskets.
