Sassy Living Below the Mason-Dixon Line


Set the Table!

I love this season!  My creativity comes alive, and I freely indulge my love of tabletop.  Linens have been important in my family for generations, and I continue to build on my grandmother’s collection.  My favorite are these Indian cotton napkins my mother bought at the now defunct gift emporium — The Richmond Art Company.  Even after much use, they still look great.  Good  quality cotton will last forever — obviously!

The Southern designer Miles Redd advises to always be party ready.  I’ve organized my buffet accordingly.  Here’s how I plan to mix and match napkins, placemats and napkin rings to create interesting tablescapes throughout the season.  Cheers!
