We're still catching up with our favorite blogs from the holiday. And we found a beautiful table setting from one of our daily sources of inspiration 2 or 3 things I know. It's inexpensive and utilizes three things: MUJI, natural linen, and cheap tableware from Asian markets. Beautiful, accessible and easy!

The key to this idea is finding cheap, found, basic materials. Lee's favorite is MUJI scraps!


3 Essentials from 2 or 3 things I know

1. MUJI: I risk sharing this secret.
Ask store clerk for their trash bin of packing paper.
Pull it apart like an acordian. You'll see it makes insane patterns.
Cut paper into squares for a napkin detail and tie hardware
store bought twine around linen or a paper towel.
=Napkin

2. Grayline Fabrics on w. 39th.
Or go to any fabric store and buy
3yd of natural linen. Cut. Left overs for napkins.
1 yd of a linen and cut in a strip for a graphic table runner.
maybe a dropping of dried chamomile flowers in
the center of the table. something bright
to offset on the neutrals.
=Tablecloth

3. Pearl River Mart
Forget crate&barrel /BedBath
It's all about cheap dishware from asian markets.
Go for white ceramic square sushi plates and buy
Saki glasses.
=tableware

We're going to be cooking meals at home for the next few months and loved this suggestions for making the table a little more special. We're particularly excited to check out Grayline Fabrics. Thanks 2 or 3 Things!
