You do not have to buy expensive flowers for the table decor in order for it to look pretty. You can simply add an elegant pot of herbs, such as basil, and a basket with different kinds of spices and oils. Also, we all know that candles is a sure winner on any table. In order for the table to look extra chic, I love to use a good tablecloth, which does not necessarily need to be ironed before use, and then top it off with linen napkins, which are being fold in different ways. I love the Danish brand, Linumø Copenhagen, who makes the most amazing and sustainable tablecloth and linen napkins.
