Map-Inspired Table Settings

Share your love of travel with your guests by using maps as an inspiration for your table setting. We were inspired by the sea blues, greens and hints of orange on a map of Sweden.



We used the map as a placemat but you could cover the entire table, or create a runner from it as well. We chose modern silverware, glassware and dishes to contrast the busyness of the map.


For the napkins, we folded blue and white striped kitchen towels and tied them with blue and white bakers twine.



For favors, we covered tiny (2" wide), watertight containers with the lining of an Airmail envelope (we cut it to size). We secured it with double-sided tape.


Each little vase was filled with 3 ranunculus and a bit of greenery. A flag, handwritten with each guest's name, was placed in each favor. The result is a bright, fresh and festive table that will encourage conversation amongst your guests!
