Equestrian themed tables can be elegant and rustic at the same time. As I decorate my dining room, I want to add an equine touch without going overboard. I dropped in on my favorite local gift shop, Breeze, where I pretty much have to lock my purse shut to prevent an inevitable purchase, and previewed this beautiful table runner by Le Jacquard Francaise. If it had only matched my dining room, I would have taken it home. Very subtle and tasteful.
Another way to add a touch of the equestrian spirit could be a simple equine centerpiece, or pour your favorite vintage out of this amazing decanter from Riedel.
So subtle and understated, it can be virtually used anywhere. This decanter would complement a formal dinner table or outdoor farm table equally.
Of course, the ultimate equestrian table dressing would be Hermes china, but short of dropping a small fortune on a single place setting, you can accent your table with just their flatware. I love the simplicity and hint of the horsey life. Put this on my Christmas list.
