    No table setting is complete without a dessert fork- life’s too sweet to leave it out!

    I love to treat each guest with a small bud vase with fresh fragrant flowers. Just a simple and personal touch that they can take with them.

    No table setting is complete without menu cards and place cards. I use them even when I am setting a simple table for my family. When each guest opens up the place card I have set in the table, they can read a special note of encouragement written especially for them. I absolutely love this set!

    The table setting isn’t complete for me, personally, until special pieces my husband and I inherited are out – silver serving utensils, colored glass serving bowls, a wonderfully worn trivet, and depression glass goblets.

    When it comes to table settings in general, I always look to the drinkware! The perfect goblet – right color, right size, right design – can make or break the completed look.

    Condiments! The more the merrier, whether sauce, chutney or relish! The southern table must have that little extra that complements the meal!

    The table isn’t complete without a napkin with fork on top to the left of the plate, knife edge on the right with the blade facing away from the dish and spoon to the right of that. With kids, just getting the silver near the plate is good enough.

    Our table setting is never complete without my Grandmother’s china. It has been used every thanksgiving and Christmas for over 50 years.

    The perfect table setting has something you know your guest loves. For instance, if your guest is from Mississippi and you know she misses it, try to find magnolias or even the leaves to use as decoration. If your guest has candles all around her house, you know she loves them. Place a couple of unscented candles on the table. Anything to make your guests feel more welcome, at home and know you gave extra thought is perfect.

    No table setting is complete without a beverage glass for our sweet tea! Also, when I set our dinner table, no matter how fancy or casual, I like to put out real butter on a pretty dish for our rolls and biscuits. My family says it makes them feel like they are at a restaurant, and I think it shows warm hospitality to our guests!

    No table setting is complete without greenery or flowers!!! I don’t mean you have to buy them – I just cut ivy, magnolia branches or privet from my yard if nothing’s blooming!!
