Creating a beautiful and inviting table doesn’t have to be a chore, a couple key elements make it easy.

Instead of using a tablecloth or placemats, show off the beauty of your table and use chargers.IMG_2758*This post contains affiliate links for your convenience*

Chargers are a great way to protect your table from damage due to heat from food, and a fantastic decorative element. I purchased these distressed white chargers at Kirklands (HERE) at 50% off.

IMG_2722Pairing the chargers with everyday plates and bowls makes for a beautiful vignette. I used white napkins from Pier One (HERE). White table napkins are classic and an essential element to any tablescape. If you only buy one color for your table, you can never go wrong with white. Pier One always has such a great assortment of table linens and table accessories.

IMG_2732No tablescape is complete without fresh flowers. Roses, of course make a perfect centerpiece. I purchased 2 dozen roses at Target for $12.00 – can’t beat that!

IMG_2748Mason jars (HERE) are always pretty paired with flowers, and are a very inexpensive way to decorate a table, not to mention the hundreds of craft projects involving mason jars.

I have a set of glass appetizer/desserts bowls I use all the time for different reasons and occasions, they always come in handy. On this table I used the footed bowls, I cut the stems of the roses and they are floating in water.
