Pretty Place settings...

Yeah, I know, Christmas has come and gone so quickly. But who says I can't post new ideas now, so that I can shop for things throughout the year, and be ready to go when next December rolls around.....??
Anyhow, here are some pretty table and place settings I came across the other day in Better Homes and Gardens. What I love about them, is that they don't scream Christmas, and that most of them could actually be used for different occassions, with a tiny change or two.

Hope you love 'em just like I do!!
This one reminds me a lot of the table I did this year, except I didn't use the blue accent color.

I think this might be one of my favorites!!! My favorite colors!!! I think I would add a bit more turquoise though... like in the trees and christmas balls!!

Now, this one didn't say Christmas at all to me, but essentially, would love amazing if your place was all blue. Plus, sub the blue for red or green, and it's perfect!!

I love the idea of a placecard, and I think these curtain clips are such an easy, inexpensive way to tackle two items: napking rings and placecards!!

A little cutesy, and a lot more traditional this would also be very well received at a Kid's table!!

This has a very Country-traditional vibe but still very cute!

This is another one of my faves and goes to show you, you don't have to use conventional "Christmas-themed" items...

These napkins were made using an iron-on transfer from a regular printer, and the napkin rings are vintage forks, bent into shape!!

if glitsz is your thing, try this Gold-decked affair!!!

Wow. I really like the colors in all of those pictures. I want to be that coordinated with our table! Our kitchen is only 36 square feet (crazy, huh?), and even though we're remodeling to make it bigger and blogging about it, I'm not sure if we'll ever manage to fit those types of details into our storage spaces. Oh how I wish. You've made me determined to try. Your collection of pictures is beautiful!
