Fun Dressing Up the Table
The family dinner table is an important part of family life. Sadly though it seems many families don't sit at the dinner table together as much as they did when I was a kid, or even as much as we did when my own daughter was a child. Many experts say that's a key thing missing in today's society and family structure. Kids are busy with school and related sports activities and families eat on the go. But, perhaps with the holidays approaching setting a nice table and sitting together as a family can be achieved.
My husband and I always eat in the dining room, except for Friday night which is traditionally pizza night at our house. That night we sit in front of the boob tube. I always use cloth napkins. They're more environmentally friendly for one, and I like the feel of them over paper napkins. I've not yet tried these folds, or anything beyond folding flat or rolling; but plan to. I wonder if the napkins need to be fairly new so they're sorta stiff?
Do you use cloth napkins? Have you tried these or other pretty/cute folds? Do you eat at the dining room table? Leave me your thoughts in the comments below.
This blog has been in moth balls for a while and I'm hoping to fix that. I recently re-charged my travel blog, Traveling Suitcase, where I'm currently blogging about a wonderful trip to Ireland and Scotland. I've managed to keep my charity blog, Bridge and Beyond, current. But, back to napkins, I always pack cloth napkins when hubby and I travel domestically. We stay in condo's/timeshares so do the bulk of our meals in.
