For the Tomato Tasting Dinner Party, I wanted the setting to be very simple- farm-to-table-esque.
-Red Striped Natural Linen Napkins (that I made- see note below)
-A Cherry Tomato
-Herb Box Centerpiece (see note below)
-Match Pewter Bud Vase with White Zinnia
-White Pantry Plates
-Country Wine Glasses
-French Water Glasses
-Bare Wooden Table
I made the napkins out of a natural linen fabric and painted red stripes around the bottom edge using a dry brush technique.
I have made several varieties of napkins and towels for my home using this same technique. It is so simple- the only skill required is being able to sew a straight line... actually you don't even need to be able to sew if you can find the napkins pre-made, you can just add the stripes to embellish them.
