Regardless of if you’re having a simple salad, a five course meal, a family dinner, or dining alone, a beautiful table setting can bring your dining experience to the next level.
1 | Brunch or Birthday Party
To keep things light and festive, Judith paired the Blush Basketweave Placemat from Chilewich with their Pink Champagne Bloom Coasters and the soft marbles of the Indaba Bird and Bloomingville Marble Candleholders. To give the setting some flair, she used the EQ3 Acre Napkin, an Indaba Faux Succulent, and topped it off with a greeting card from Hester and Cook. The blush tones give a warm quality to any table!

Having matching tableware is always pleasing to the eye. Judith kept a simple theme with the Indaba Hemlock Bowl, Plate, and Mug on top of the Black Kaleidoscope Chilewich Placemat. The Black Ticking Napkins from Indaba and Black Pitch Candleholders from EQ3 tie in the look! Finally, Judith added some decorative flourish from her garden to keep that organic feel.

3 | Appetizers
Serving appetizers requires some extra dishware! We are smitten with Bloomingville’s Acacia Serving Board, which has three marble pinch pots and three brass spoons. We love that you can have an assortment of jams, jellies, olives, ect. on this tray. Layered on our Chroma Placemat from Chilewich, are two Stoneware Tumblers on top of Dahlia Coasters, a Linen Napkin, and a Brass Bowl filled with sweets. The gold tones of the brass spoons, coasters, and bowl pop against the greys. And the Mr. Rabbit Candle is just too cute not to feature!

4 | Formal Dinner
The Flora Placemat is an elegant piece that can be played up or down, depending on the occasion. For this formal setting, Judith has leaned into the simplicity of blacks, whites, and gold! The black plate grounds the look with the whimsical feel of the Marble Candleholders and Pitch Candleholder surrounding it. And, depending on the season, add a sprig of fern, eucalyptus, or holly to make it festive.

5 & 6 | Tea & Coffee
Moving into the living room after your meal for tea or coffee is a great excuse to fashion yet another table setting! Using the Chilewich Bloom Placemats, which pop nicely against the on walnut Metric Coffee Table and End Table from Gus, Judith has created a sweet spot to have tea and coffee. For tea, she’s used the coordinating Botanical Mugs and the Botanical Dish for either used teabags, or for sweet treats. For coffee, she’s used the matching Heart Mugs and Dish.
