As we start to wrap our heads around decorating the Thanksgiving table, we stumbled on this image from a dinner party in an artist’s studio, published in Anthology Magazine. This place setting incorporates a number of ideas we’ve featured over the years, in an especially charming way. The placemat is simply a sheet paper ripped from an art pad with the menu artfully printed on it; we love that it drapes over the edge of the table. Kraft paper also works fine with a handmade artwork or drawing.
The napkins are Ikea’s inexpensive cotton Tekla dishtowels. (Ten 26″x20″ cloth dish towel/napkins cost about $17 at Amazon.)
We’re thinking herb bouquests would stand in a unexpected flowers.
