Charge It

As dinner parties begin, dressing the table is always a production. More often than not, I am seeing less of the traditional table cloth and more of the natural appeal of the dining table itself shine through. Most of these bare back tablescapes are using the oversized ambience of chargers to create a marvelous place setting. Chargers are often disregarded as a needless necessity, but more recently have blossomed into a table staple.

So don’t worry about over served guests and an expensive table cloth (a stainful combination). Here are just a few tangible choices that make it easy to charge it!
