one day when i own a real dining table (and not the wobbly ikea table we have now) i’m going to relish geeking out over table linens. i have a strong urge to indulge my inner ina and spend an hour ironing my nice linens while i think about what dessert i’m going to serve our guests. but until then, i’ll keep bookmarking pretty table linens like these designs from kathy mellor in south africa. i love the purple flower designs- they’re cute enough to use for younger guests, but sophisticated enough to use for a nicer dinner with friends. kathy has some really nice designs with illustrated silverware that i love, too- those would make really great everyday napkins. if you’re looking for some new table linens, click here to check out kathy’s collection online.
