Daily inspiration, set the table

I like to tables in simple manner & not overburden with decorations. It’s not always easy to know when to quit. Many times, I think it gets too busy.  Some decorations such as fresh flowers or candlesticks are in the way of conversations & eye contact. Understand me right, it’s certainly beautiful, but not always functionally. Taste-wise, I prefer tablecloths covering the entire table. Linen or Cotton fabric, with very simple patterns. (if some at al) It might not sound exciting but it becomes nice enough & makes the entire room with all invited, less stressed or busy. To exaggerate a little, on occasions like Christmas, works fine 🙂

Tablecloths

I have been shopping tablecloths for our long table, actually two tables in a row. I have not had time to look over it earlier & it actually does a lot for a  homely feeling. We gather for dinner together most days of the week. If not dinner, then at least a breakfast joint. Very important for the family & important for us to connect & catch up with the everyday life.

After a big birthday party for my oldest son, UNi & HSC studies for both – well, I have decided to wait a couple of weeks until they have completed those important & stressful events. It looks very messy but that’s life at times.
Meanwhile, here’s some inspiration that I have found, for you to enjoy.

Dinner time

The best way ever to entertain, I believe, is to get together over a meal, eat, drink & discuss. The meaning of life, human differences, world history or simple everyday pleasures. Talking points are important but more importantly are the group of people that you surround yourself with. Those who makes the difference – who makes you feel comfortable, feel good & warms you … in body & soul … including the dining area!

Cozy, comfortable, nice, pleasing – things that matters, sometimes more than the food you are served. Environments depends on what you prefer or are used to. It’s rarely about impression, in the true sense. It contributes to the atmosphere, of course. I would lie if i said that space or environment wasn’t important. But the point is that it’s more important with the people participating. The personalities that makes the event. From the topics of discussion, to the life they have lived, their attitude to things. A certain smile, a silence that is pleasant or a constant cackling taking place but that is contagious.

Amidst all this, the common dining area is also part of the whole. That which creates wellbeing, together with the aromas & flavors, lit candles plus mood lighting, AND the music. So, to sum ​​it all up – space, enables the place & the individuals makes the event. I hope this makes sense in english 🙂
