As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with our friends and families, we are giving thought to the role of beautiful table settings in entertaining. Perhaps because we are interior designers, the tone that is set by the dining room is central to how we celebrate the holidays. We like to experiment with our table settings, adding unique elements such as antique plates or glasses, uniquely-shaped bowls, individual flowers or other accessories. Each place setting does not have to be the same – sometimes we mix and match from our china or glass collections. A lovely table cloth serves as the base for the table scape, or sometimes we go with placemats only. Coming up with a theme for our design scheme and then choosing elements that will support that look is how we approach every design project at Hoskins Interior Design – even those within our own homes! Give yourself and your guests a gift this holiday season by having fun with your table settings!
