A fun dining idea courtesy o Brad Ford: replace your placemats with slate platters! Ford mixed aged silver cutlery with wood chargers, a hemp-like table runner, and birch-wrapped votives to create a textural, earthy tablescape.
Outback glamour. To anchor each place setting, we cut out hessian circles to use as placemats. The traditional dinner plate looks as regal as a charger plate, while the brass cutlery tied with a porcelain Christmas tag adds to the sense of occasion. When it comes to flowers, only Australian natives will do, with glassware in eucalyptus green to tie the look together.
