Simple Tip: Satin Ribbon Makes Affordable Place Setting

At a party, Diffa's Dining By Design event, I saw the most uncomplicated yet sophisticated place setting. A plain linen napkin was lined with a single satin ribbon. The color palate was muted and the ribbon had an elegant twist. This budget-friendly technique can easily be re-created at your next dinner party! Here's how:

  1. Head to the local craft store and purchase a spool of satin ribbon.
  2. Carefully fold a cloth napkin and lay across the plate.
  3. Measure the width of the plate with the ribbon and cut to size. Stretch the ribbon across the plate, twisting once.

Voila — instantly chic table setting. Do you have an economical place-setting tip? Please share with us below!
