Easy Fall Place Setting Idea | Family Economics
The fall season brings many opportunities to entertain guests in your home and set a nice dinner table. While I often enjoy a traditionally set table, I also like to change things up a bit by creating place settings that are creative and unique. Here’s a quick and easy idea that will give you a reason to rethink the way you set your cutlery during your next dinner party.
- Cutlery including forks, spoons and knives
- Name cards for each guest (this can be made with plain paper and permanent marker, as pictured above)
Gather your fork, spoon, and knife and secure them together by wrapping a piece of twine around the top of the stems 6-7 times. There is no need to knot the twine, as wrapping each set several times will keep the utensils secured and allow for guests to easily separate them once the meal begins. If you plan on using seating cards, simply secure them to the fork by inserting it into the prongs. This is an easy way to display the name card at each place setting.
Will you be hosting friends and family at your home this holiday season? What other unique table setting ideas do you have in mind for your dining table?
