Just popping in today to share with you all one of my favorite ideas for setting a beautiful table- I love to use my woven utensil caddy as part of my centerpiece!
Utensil caddys are so functional- especially on busy weeknights when I am trying to get dinner on the table, we will just grab the caddy and use it as part of our simple centerpiece, then, when everyone sits down they can easily grab their own flatware and napkins! This idea saves so much time and keeps dinner casual and fun!
I have had my caddy for years (I believe it's from Pottery Barn or Williams Sonoma) I also keep it on my kitchen counter, because it saves me room in my tiny kitchen (which doesn't have many drawers) and it makes emptying the dishwasher a cinch!
A caddy also works well when serving a meal buffet-style, after helping themselves to their food, folks can easily grab their utensils and napkins before they find a seat.
If you can find a pretty caddy, I encourage you to use it on your table, on your counter and even consider incorporating it into your next table setting like this...
