    How to Set a Table

    Table Setting

    1. First, decide on whether you would like an elegant/formal presentation versus a casual one.  This will affect which dishes you will use and what you will accessorize with.
    2. Decide which dishes to use.  We here at Jean Elton Studio are trying to create dinnerware that can be used for casual and formal table settings.
    3. Match the dishes with a tablecloth or placemats.
    4. To dress up your Jean Elton dinnerware (or any dishes that you choose to set), add some of your fine china, crystal, and/or silver flatware.  To keep it casual, accessorize with pewter or stainless steel flatware.
    5. Remember, forks go on the left!
    6. Find matching napkins.  To make the table more interesting, add napkin rings, or fold your napkins in clever ways.
    7. Accessorize with other fun items like individual salt/pepper shakers or miniature flower arrangements at each place setting.  In the evening, add tea lights to make a warmer setting.
    8. Finish with a centerpiece to match your theme.  Remember it doesn’t have to just be flowers or a plant!  It can be a matching dish with a candle and greens around it, or a bowl of fruit.
