We love this particular recipe because it’s casual yet elegant at the same time. It’s perfect for a home that does not have a formal dining room in addition to a dining area for everyday use. The clear table is a great way to accent the spaciousness of the room, and the place settings feature napkin rings — a nice extra touch without going over the top! Overall, this dining room is perfect for every day use and entertaining.
