We will have 3 separate areas for eating. First, we have the kids table which will be in the kitchen. I had a lot of fun deciding on these place settings. The goal with this table was for it to be colorful and fun for the kids. Yes, I decided to go with paper napkins, and I kept it casual with the clothes pin place cards. I used simple white dishes and jelly jars for drinks. Each kiddo also has a little pumpkin decoration to take home with them.
Next, we have the main table in our dining room. I have been wanting to do an all white table for a long time, so I decided this was my chance. I layered basic white Ikea dinner plates with some cream scalloped edged bread plates I've had forever. Then, I added simple bowls in white as well and mason jars for our sweet iced tea. I created a cream table runner out of a drop cloth and made 5 napkins to match. I used twine as napkin rings and used neutral colored craft paper to make name cards. Most of the centerpiece items I had on hand or picked up at the dollar store. I have cream candle holders with white pillars, small glasses filled with beans and a votive, and miscellaneous fall decor in cream. But, my favorite part of this table is the flowers. I chose some gorgeous hydrangea blossoms in white with sweet baby's breath added for fun.
And, finally, we have the bonus dining area in our living room! I set up a little card table, disguised it with another drop cloth remnant and used the couch and ottoman as well as two extra chairs for seating. I made some more simple place settings, this time with a bit of color. I kept things casual by again using mason jars for drinking glasses.
Here's a shot from the front door of the living and dining rooms. And, see- there's room for all of this and still we can walk around! Haha.
A dear friend of mine said that our home may be small in size, but it's massive in love. And, that is truly the desire of my heart!
