When I created a tablescape a couple weeks ago, for the sole purpose of photographing it for a blog post, my 3 girls wanted to eat at the fancy set table. Never mind that we were having leftovers for supper instead of a fancy dinner, they thought we should eat there. And since typically you set a table to be dined upon I can’t really blame them! They weathered it well when I insisted it was just for a photo shoot and even left it all intact for the few days before I took it all apart and put everything away so I could use the table for sewing projects.
I did decide that it would be a shame to not set a nice fancy table for Easter – even though it would just be the 5 of us here, and it sounded easier to just eat in the kitchen like always.
