As a follow-up from my recent video on setting the table, I thought I’d share a few photos of simple centerpieces for your kitchen or dining room table!
Are you ever stumped at what you could put on your kitchen table as a centerpiece? It doesn’t have to be an FTB bouquet to be pretty! Sometimes we just need a few photos to inspire us to pull out what we already own and make a pretty embellishment. Here are a few examples…
Look around your house for items to use for the table. Consider:
Cloth napkins or a charger for under the centerpiece
Trays – Wooden, silver, black
Stems of tree branches
Fabric pumpkins or real ones that are miniature
Tea pots, pretty jars or pitcher to hold the flowers or stems
I hope this inspires you to gather some of the things you already own and refresh your kitchen table! Even if it takes days for your family to notice, you’ll see it and it just might bring a smile to your face!
Refresh your heart by being in a Gospel preaching church this Sunday. Christ loves the church and gave Himself for it! Ephesians 5:25 Since He loves it that much, we should, too!
A part of every day life is eating a meal. So, too, is the need to set the table. I’ve heard many women say they don’t really know how to properly put the silverware and tableware out. Is it just being too fussy to set the table? No! But if you don’t know what to do, fear not; it’s not something that requires lifted pinkies or tea cups!
My video today will show how to set a simple table, making it pretty enough for company, but also perfect for your family. Don’t let them have your leftovers (no pun intended!). Make them feel special by making mealtime an event. It’s really up to us to make the table pretty, and this simple video will give you a few ideas to show how.
What centerpiece do you have on your table right now?
If you’re having a crowd for dinner and serving buffet style, here’s a fun way to display paper napkins rather than stacking them in a pile!
Here’s a video tutorial:
I love to make even a simple meal pretty with small embellishments like this. I love using my cloth napkins, but at an event that you want to make it a little more casual and use paper napkins, it can still be pretty!
These slipped out of the tea pots very easily. I had the silverware in Ball mason jars -a tall one for knives, then smaller ones for the forks and spoons. I always place the silverware at the end of the buffet so guests don’t have to hold it while filling their plates.
That’s it for me! Hope you have a great weekend! We have a really, really special weekend ahead! I’ll tell you all about it next week!
