So, Monday, hello. I was able to be part of hosting a shower this weekend so I have been away from my laptop and my blog but I have been contemplating table decor as I helped arrange a few.
I don’t think all great table decor should be limited to birthday parties, showers and special occasions. I find that if you rotate your dinner table decor in and out four or five times a year, I usually change it when I get bored with it, which is usually every few months, it can be a great change of scenery in your home and is pretty inexpensive.
Give yourself an emotional boost by changing the dialog your room is giving off by adding different colors and textures. I like to get bright place mats and mix them with bamboo toppers. A layered affect really changes your table dynamic from something utilitarian to your own art gallery.
Take it a step further and mix in different flowers or centerpieces every few weeks and I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised when you get up to tackle a Monday morning and have something fresh to greet you. I try to cut roses from my garden every week during spring and summer, I know this sounds like a lot of effort for your dining room but it really can add some sweet comfort to a place that is often overlooked.
