Setting a table that makes everyone feel like they are instantly at home and also feel celebrated and special is a passion of mine. This table was set for a photoshoot I set up for my friends at Fabled Bookshop and Cafe.
I love to set a table mixed with elements both classic and natural. For this table I chose our classic hand thrown dinner and salad plates in a mix of our 4 colors, our modern gold and stainless flatware, our handmade linen napkins and our Belgium stemmed glassware. I added classic books stacked (because what fun to set a table at a bookstore!) at random and topped with our Black Oak candle holders and taper candles in a mix a neutral tones. I then forged the forest around my house and the shop to cut my favorite winter bush with black/ blue berries.
I hope you enjoy the outcome as much as I do and I hope it inspires you to gather what you have at home and in your yard and put together a lovely table for a few friends or just a cozy night in with family.
