Around My Table is back with year-round party inspiration. Around My Table is once again a stand-alone blog after being redirected to Sweet Sensations for a couple of years. Designing everyday and special occasion tablescapes is one of my passions and I want to share it with as many as I can. It’s often said that we eat first with our eyes and I’ve found that to be true. Having that meal at a dressed table is gratifying and enhances the dining atmosphere. At its minimum, a tablescape adds pleasure to the meal. At the other end of the spectrum, it can tell an elaborate story.
Keep in mind that the meal doesn’t have to be fancy nor do the place settings and décor have to be expensive. Shop your home first, you never know how what you already have can be used in a different way. I never met a thrift store I didn’t like and that’s where a good portion of my decorating stash comes from.
While I’ll still share ideas for styling tables for everyday and holidays here, I intend to venture more into designs and styles for milestone events like weddings and showers, plus small soirees hosted just because. I love coming up with fun and creative themes, and I still get excited about planning and styling the tried and true ones.
If you’ve been here before, thanks for coming back. If this is your first time, welcome. For some holiday and party inspiration please check out the links below.
