I get a few emails from readers about how setting tables can give them anxiety. Will they impress their guests? Are they trying too hard? For one, don't worry about guests. No matter what the table looks like, they will be happy to be there! And keep it fun! Not every tablescape has to be decked out with runners, votives, placemats and table cloths! You can find and create beautiful tablescapes using very few items (say you're like me and don't have quite the collection yet). My only suggestion is to always use some sort of plant or produce (pumpkins for fall, cranberries for winter, etc) and two to three different colors so it isn't boring. Check out Jenny's from Everyday Occasions. She chose green, white and a pretty pewter with simple napkins and glasses and created this simple, elegant tablescape.
