I have had the hardest time lately trying to figure out what I like on my kitchen and dining room tables. Over the last year I’ve rotated through all sorts of things that I have in the house. Runner and no runner. Candles and no candles. Flowers and no flowers. You get the gist.
I definitely don’t love the faux floral arrangement that was here in the kitchen a few years back. (pic from 2012)
I also don’t know if I love the flowers in the dining room. This arrangement has been in the attic since Easter. (this pic was from 2013, however)
I want something more practical for every day in the kitchen because we eat dinner here 5 out of 7 nights and play games here and do homework here at times. This has been my favorite so far – a simple tray with a few decorative items that can be easily moved off of the table as needed. These particular items were in place for Whit’s first communion, but I switch them out with candles and flowers and such regularly. (This tray is current and is from Target. I also use it as a trivet.)
As far as the dining room, I’m at a loss. Right now I have just my four white candlesticks and that looks pretty sad.
I’d love to know if you have something pretty and practical that you love on your kitchen table! Share what you put on your formal dining room table too. I am quite possibly over thinking this, but the days do get long :-)
