Simple table settings are just that simple.

They are elegant, simple and beautiful, and as an added bonus will save you loads of time and energy…

So next time you are setting the table just take the ‘less is more’ approach, and you may just surprise yourself about how beautiful your table looks.

Ok, It’s official… I am now addicted to Pinterest!  I just love flicking through the visually beautiful boards that many ordinary people like you and I have created.

It just proves that creativity lies within all of us, and simplicity is my personal favourite style!

Below is a collection of simple table settings but first we need to discuss what you will need.
