Now and Zen
Create a spalike setting with foliage and earth-toned tableware. Scan the store for chopsticks, candles and stones (usually sold in small bags) to round out the look. You don't need a tablecloth -- just cover the table with brown craft paper!
Shop with a color in mind -- and think creatively: Turn a plastic bowl into an ice bucket and use bandanas as cloth napkins.
Dress up a paper tablecloth with stylish utensils and glassware. A few fresh flowers will work wonders, too.
