The whole point of a charger is to create height and depth in your table setting arrangements. Layer, layer, layer.
Chargers not only come in different colors but in different textures: wood, bamboo, sisal, crystal, glass, earthenware, stone... It goes on and on.
I love using natural materials in choosing my chargers.
Going along the lines of using a charger made out of natural material is the picture above; a large fern or palm frond. Lay it underneath the table setting for a very stylish yet natural look.
Another charger tipI'm doing an event for an organization this summer and need to keep the costs down. So for a charger all I am using is a large 10 inch black plate with a smaller white salad plate on top. The contrast is gorgeous and it is just a plate!
