Southern Table Setting Ideas
To create this table setting, Senior Photo Stylist Buffy Hargett used a collection of pitchers as vases, filling them with hydrangea and viburnum blooms for a fresh look.
Inspired by the garden, Editor-at-Large Kimberly Schlegel Whitman planned a vibrant bridal luncheon bursting with spring blooms and clever ideas for her sister, Kari Schlegel Kloewer.
Even when the mood is casual, the setting can still be elegant and pretty. Lifestyle expert Eddie Ross shopped Atlanta’s Scott Antique Market and local stores for a mix of old and new components to create this inviting table setting.
For this table setting, Charleston event designer Tara Guérard looked to a family china pattern for inspiration. The result is a pretty color palette of Champagne and gold with subtle touches of pink.
A simple centerpiece provides the drama for a book-themed dinner that speaks volumes. Lindsay Gibson personalized store-bought bookplates to mark each place setting and topped off the look with specially chosen vintage books that double as party favors for guests.
