How to Create a Perfect Place Setting

We associate fall with warmth. Even as the air gets chilly, holidays like Thanksgiving warm our hearts and allow us to share delicious meals with the people we love most. If you’re hosting people at your home for a fall meal, you can make the table decor extra special by creating a unique, cozy place setting. Ask yourself these three questions to create a perfect place setting!


How to Create a Perfect Place Setting | 3 Questions to Ask Yourself

How to create a perfect place setting

Question 1: Is it clean?

Your place setting should be literally clean, but it should also give off a clean feeling! Are your guests able to sit and experience dinner without a bunch of decorative “stuff” in the way?

Question 2: Is it functional?

This adds an additional element to the “clean” question. You want to use only the things that you will need during the dinner party. Don’t add any unnecessary decorative item to your place setting if it has no essential part of the actual dinner.

Question 3: Is it personal?

Trends are turning to be more warm, welcoming, and personal. Add a name card to each place setting in a creative way, or tie in the reason behind the dinner party as a thematic element. Your guests will appreciate the personalized touches.

At Third Day Market, we have all the elements you need to make a beautiful place setting for any season, but especially fall. We’ve got lots of fall napkins, a variety of napkin rings, and placemats fit for your table.
