Setting the Table

Hello Dear Reader,

I love to set a nice table, a freshly ironed tablecloth, our best plates and cutlery and some flowers. It is simple, but the act of setting the table is one I don't get to do very often. We always take our nightly dinner next door to my Mother in Law and as such we don't set a table. It is easier for her to eat at the breakfast bar, so thats what we do.

When I get the chance to have family over, I start with setting the table, then I know it's done and I don't have to worry about it and I can get on with preparing the lunch or dinner, or what ever it happens to be. I have collected some beautiful tablecloths over the years and even though I am not much of an ironer this is something I will do to make it look really lovely. I even have cloth table napkins but I don't always use them.

So, tell me, do you set a table every day or is it for special occasion only?

  1. Love this post and happy to have found your blog! My son's job is to set the table each night for dinner. I use a tablecloth infrequently because of spills but we do use cloth napkins and occasionally have candles or flowers. It makes dinner so much nicer, I think.
