"I started here with white linens and hand-painted Anna Weatherley china," Kimberly says. "I combined the dinner plates with heavier ceramic chargers from a yard sale and my wood-handled flatware."
Heavy metal holders keep napkins from blowing away before guests arrive. Mixing sparkly goblets with rattan-covered tumblers helps create a more interesting textural setting.
