Handsome & Elegant Table Setting

Rugged horn-handled serving pieces contrast with silver candlesticks.

An understated burlap tablecloth sets the tone for classic navy and green tartan — the only hit of colour on this table. A gold-rimmed glass charger and white dinner plate with subtle beading add a special touch. The crystal drop candelabra brings festive sparkle to the table.
