the table is set!

Here is the blog where I totally brag about my child. :) He loves to set the table. He does it without being asked... mind you, the only chore he does without being told to haha! But he asks for what he needs.. plates, napkins, glasses, silverware, etc and then he completely runs with it.
Each place setting is a little crooked, some of the silverware ends up upside down, and the cup always appears in a funny spot, but the fact of the matter is that Andrew feels so accomplished after setting the table. He is so incredibly proud of himself, and that makes a momma happy to see. :) Even notice the little votives??? And he wrote out place cards for everyone as well.. AH, so darn cute.
I am so proud of this little bug. :) He even went outside to pick a flower and put it in a little glass in the middle of the table... sooo Martha. hehe!


So while we are on the subject, I thought I would share some of my favorite tables that I have spotted in the past few weeks of spring...

Add the eggs to add the perfect little Easter flair... simple but effective.

Probably the cutest table in the world. Various coffee tins in funky colors, filled with an array of gorgeous flowers. This would be perfect after a trip to the farmer's market- come home with a whole pile of your favorite flowers and set up a happy table to eat dinner at. :)
An almost austere, yet beautiful table. Stark colors with the cherry blossom branches makes for such a light and airy feel.

I hope you all take the time to set a pretty table tonight and enjoy a fun dinner! Or better yet, toss the plates and silverware to the kids and make them do it- believe me, you will be glad you did. :) xo!
