Welcome to Around My Table

Welcome to my second blog home, I’m so happy that you are here! If you’ve been following me on Sweet Sensations you know that I have a love of beautiful tables as well as desserts. These two go together very well, however right now I feel the need to give them each their own space. I’m sure there will be times when they cross paths and it’s my intention to give both enough variety and content to let them shine as individuals.

Here I will share lots of tablescaping ideas for holidays, special occasions and everyday in between. Many of us have family heirlooms and things we consider “the good stuff” that rarely see the light of day. My mom had pretty tableware that she hardly ever used and I vowed to never do that. Real china and crystal or even linen napkins aren’t a necessity to gussy up a table, and you surely don’t have to wait for a holiday. To me everyday that we’re blessed to be here is a special occasion so I’m using my stuff!

I’m also tapping into my creative side to show you simple DIY ideas to enhance table décor that you may already have, as well as items you find while thrifting or just bargain hunting. Seeing a beautifully decorated table with accompanying music does wonders for conveying the feel of a table, so look forward to seeing a few of mine on my Youtube channel as well as here. In addition I’ll share a few tutorials and hopefully a couple of field trips along the way to give you an idea or two on how to pull some table décor together.

Ever wondered how to remove candle wax from your table linens, or how to care for and store your candles? I’ve got you covered. It’s equally important to know how to care for your pretty table items as well as how to use them.
