Serene and Cen­tered

Martha Stewart Living - - Good Living -

The sub­tle shades and tex­tures of mar­ble (or stone) din­ner­ware make a great back­drop for a con­cept cut from a sim­i­lar cloth. Per­son­al­ize smooth river rocks with each guest’s name, spelled out in gold stick­ers. Then up the zen glow fur­ther with shin­ing cut­lery, sepia-tone glasses, and soft oat­meal- col­ored linens. When the meal’s over, en­cour­age ev­ery­one to slip her keep­sake in her pocket.
