A place setting is a simple thing, but one that certainly makes an impression on your guests. Creating a special experience for everyone need not be strenuous – in fact with just one or two additions to an otherwise bland table setting you can create a beautiful look straight from nature. For example, layer a river stone over a fern over a plain linen napkin. It almost sounds too easy! But the results are gorgeous. Leaves, ferns, branches, flowers (dried or fresh), seashells, succulents, herbs, berry sprigs, and fruit are just some of the examples here. There are sure to be more you could find in Mother Nature.
