Elegantly Casual with Crate and Barrel

I just love my everyday dishes.  They are so simple, they go with everything, and are so durable they have lasted 10 years.  I bought my Crate and Barrel Culinary Arts porcelain china when we bought our second, and current, house.  They are timeless and still look good and relevant, even today.

And thanks to my recent birthday and a gift card from my sister, I have the prettiest napkin rings!!  I also bought some new china that I'm so excited about, but that will have to wait until next week.

Aren't these napkin rings just the right amount of sparkle for this table?  They are spectacular.  I got them a couple weeks ago at Pier 1 Imports.

Dad brought this pewter pitcher back from Malaysia for me a few years ago.  I love it!

And I found these cute yellow Ralph Lauren napkins at Marshall's for a steal along with these place mats!

This makes me think of summer and I can't wait until it's here!


  1. Jenny,
    So very pretty. Love the place mats!

  2. I love this table setting, just gorgeous! The placemats are so pretty, the napkin rings are so much fun. I love your father's pewter pitcher. Yes, white dishes are always so great to have, one never gets tired of them and go with everything and all the four seasong as well. Very nice.

  3. I think you nailed it with the title, elegantly casual! Just a beautiful setting, lovin' your fun new napkin rings-enjoy:@)

  4. What an absolutely striking tablesetting. It is beautiful. . . and those napkin rings? Oh my!! LOVE them!!!

  5. Beautiful tablescape. Love the napkins and napkin rings. We have a Pier1 but not crate and barral.

  6. Your every day china is great, love that it has a lip all the way around. The napkin rings are really pretty with your choice of napkins.

  7. Ohhhh, love it .... has such a simple clean look yet the details are so "on"... Great tablescape!! I use my white dishes more than any others. :)

  8. Very pretty! I really like those napkin rings. You are right; they add just the right amount of sparkle.

    You have a much nicer Marshall's than the one close to me. They never had any placemats or napkins as nice as yours.

    Beautiful tablescape!

  9. Lovely tablescape...good choice on the napkin rings. I think that those placemats are quite special. They really catch the eye. I can picture them used in a number of different settings. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
