You may have noticed I haven’t yet refreshed my dining area as planned.

My usual design paralysis took hold, and I couldn’t stop thinking about Thanksgiving. What do the holidays have to do with home design? Well, everything.

The more I thought about it, the more I couldn’t come up with a wallpaper and concept that I was confident I’d love year round. As it turns out, I’m content with my minimalist dining area for now, and I think it really shines when I decorate for a gathering.

I decided to set the table for an inexpensive and easy, but glam fall meal.

I set the table with items I already had on hand: some gold chargers, white dishes, and leftover white pumpkins from Halloween.

I then added eucalyptus branches and pretty fall florals to add a pretty pop.

Easter Lunch Tablescape for Kids

There are only two weeks until Easter, and I kicked off the season with a casual Easter lunch for the kids.

The menu was very fancy: PB&J, applesauce, string cheese, and milk.

The table was a little fancier. We used their Easter baskets as centerpieces, and filled them with some Easter things we bring out each year: books, little stuffed animals, bunny ears, and some (empty) plastic eggs.
