The table setting on my kitchen table changes with the seasons (and sometimes my mood!). It's easy to update your table's look by getting a new set of placemats. I have hosted quite a few impromptu dinner parties lately and my winter set is starting to show wear (oil/wine stains, etc) and tear, so I asked you to help me find a new tablescape. I want four wintery placemats in sober tones. You saved your placemats and centerpiece accessories in the Yum Market and tagged them with the keyword, Everyday Table Setting. Here's how I'll overhaul my table's look:
Rubialala's beautiful white mirrored placemat will serve as the new focal point of the table. At first I wanted to use these as the main placemats but realized it's too snowy white and will be best when placed in the center of my table.

On top of the white placemat, to finish up the centerpiece, I'll arrange 2-4 of these black candles that rubialala discovered (thanks for your help girl!). I really like the shorter, stubby ones because they won't prevent me from seeing my mom who sits across from me during dinner.
In front of the 4 chairs, I'll place the black and white patterned placemats that I found at Neiman Marcus. Throw in a beautiful vase filled with red roses and I'm finally ready for my next last minute dinner party.
