Hey there friends!! Even though our kitchen is a pretty decent size, the one thing we lack is a pantry. So,that means that our food has to be stored in cabinets in the kitchen. Not ideal, but it works. However, it does take away valuable storage for a lot of other things! For years I’ve considered the idea of adding some sort of storage in the corners of our breakfast “nook”, on either side of the large window. (I struggle with calling it a “nook” because it’s really a pretty big space, but it’s not a dining room, so what else do I call it?? haha) Here’s how it looked before at Valentine’s Day. 🙂
It’s been a while since I shared a tablescape with y’all!! I found some table linens in a closet not too long ago that I had completely forgotten buying! Ugh! Do you ever do that? I purchased them last year on clearance at Target. They are so cute and summery! I just had to pull together a table for you guys!
We are one week away from the day of love! Are you ready? Do you celebrate really? Hubby and I don’t do a lot, a small gesture to each other but nothing big. We haven’t gone out ON Valentine’s Day but maybe once or twice our whole married life, because when we did it was crazy crowded and not that much fun. We can go out to dinner any time and it will be just as special. But, I do sometimes set a pretty table for our family and make a special dinner. I have even been known to make everyone dress up for dinner. 🙂 I’m sharing with you today another simple tablescape that might inspire you to do the same!
Excited to join up with another group of talented bloggers to share a few more cozy spots in our home all dressed up for Christmas! If this is your first time here, welcome! So glad to have you! Feel free to stay awhile and look around! If you missed Monday’s post where I shared our family room, you can go back and check that out here. I love to spread the Christmas cheer throughout the rest of our home as well, sprinkled in small doses here and there and that’s what I’m sharing today!! Let’s start in the kitchen.
If you’ve been around here for any amount of time you know how much I love to put together a tablescape!! I used to labor over them for hours. But, now that I’ve done several, they take me no time at all. The planning and idea process takes a while, sometimes more than a while if I can’t find any inspiration. But, once inspiration strikes and I gather all the things, it comes together in a flash. This time was no different!! I had a couple of different ideas swimming around but I LOVE the one I landed on because it just looks so darn cute! I am also joining my blogging friends again for a tablescape blog hop, so be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post!!
