Nature-Inspired Table Setting

Layer plants and plates for an organic-chic look.

Create an elegant place setting by layering dried fern fronds between sleek earthenware chargers and clear glass plates. Add upscale polish with heirloom silverware, but mix it with chunky antique horn-handled cutlery, an artfully rumpled linen table runner and smoky glass tumblers for a more casual ambience.
