To make your dinner table pretty, here’s an easy idea: Scatter succulents around the table. They’re beautiful—with a hint of the desert—and they last much longer than fresh flowers. You can find collections at Etsy, West Elm and Terrain. (They’d also make a great hostess gift, don’t you think?)

P.S. Pretty napkins, and home scents.
