A Stunning Combination
"Sometimes the simplest table settings can be the most dramatic. Set out small vases of red or white flowers with tea light candles between the arrangements. This combination can be striking next to a white tablecloth." —Michael Leva and Nancy Parker, authors of Recipes for Parties: Menus, Flowers, D├ęcor: Everything for Perfect Entertaining (Rizzoli)
