Sometimes I purchase things just because I know I’ll eventually use them in my home decor. I’ve developed a pretty good feel for things that work in my home, so I don’t have to have the perfect spot in mind before I purchase something.
These woven chargers were a different story. I had them styled on my kitchen table before I even removed the tags! My mom purchased a few of the same ones several weeks earlier and I loved how she styled them on her kitchen table. I couldn’t wait to use them in my dining area!
I’m always looking for a way to keep my dining room table pretty, but without so much stuff that it’s difficult to sit down and eat a meal without completely un-doing the decor. Typically I leave a runner (or two place mats together to look like a runner) and a small centerpiece on the table. When it’s time to eat, I grab a few place mats or a tablecloth and quickly set the table.
Here’s how I set the table for Sunday dinner over the weekend. I love using white dishes because they work with any color scheme, and the chargers really add great texture and dimension to my table setting!
Setting a pretty table doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive! I picked up those place mats from a Target clearance a couple years ago, and everything else I’ve had for ages! In between meals, I leave the centerpiece on the table along with the place mats, chargers and napkins.
Best of all, these chargers were only $3 each! I picked them up at Dollar General along with some other really fun pieces. You can see the rest of my Dollar General haul here.
