2. Learn some low-cost ways to enhance your gathering. A dinner with friends can be special without your spending much. It’s all about making an effort … and that effort doesn’t need to be big! Here are a few ideas:Use recycled glass jars of various sizes to hold cutlery, flowers, votive candles and beverages.Serve “fancy” water with slices of lemon and sprigs of fresh mint.Warm some bread and serve it wrapped in a tea towel.Cover the table with whatever you have on hand, whether that’s kraft paper, an old sheet with a fun print or a picnic tablecloth.

The dining room’s light fixture is a George Nelson lamp, a replacement for the ornate crystal chandelier that formerly hung in the space. “We have long loved George Nelson’s lamps and were thrilled to finally have one of our own,” Greta says. The dining room table is a vintage Heywood Wakefield piece from Amsterdam Modern in Los Angeles. The couple originally acquired six white matching chairs when they bought the table years ago, but since then some of them have needed to be replaced. The wooden ones are hand-me-downs from a friend. The two turquoise chairs are from a church in Amsterdam.

simply entertaining -- make your own tablecloth out of other materials. Cut up fabric with pinking shears for napkins. Make jug of fancy water with lemons, limes, etc.
