Dress a Table Tuesday ~ Join Us!

It's been a week and so far our table has something pretty on it every dinnertime; and sometimes for snack!  My oldest latched right on to this new table-dressing thing.  At snack time, she got out her tea set, the cloth napkins, and arranged a new bundle of flowers she found outside.  She explained to me her method, "I gathered mint and lavender for a nice smell, Sow in the Summer for white accents, an Iris for color, and Lamb's Ear for texture."  My goodness, she has a gift, I tell you.  She even lit the candles and turned on some mood music.  Suddenly the orange-and-milk snack became a beautiful, peaceful gathering of siblings while I started making dinner in the kitchen.
"Are your napkins on yer laps?"  Our son reminded the girlies.  Napkin police is he.
It was a thing of beauty, I tell you.
What a difference some flowers and cloth napkins make.

Now it's your turn!
What have you done to add beauty to your table?  A flower?  A new candle?  A whole spread of gorgeousness?  What effect did it have on those you dine with?  I've been waiting all week to see what you've done!  Now is the time to leave a link in the comments section of this post that takes us to your blog, an Instagram picture, or some other link that we can visit and admire your dressed table.  Remember, if you're using Twitter or Instagram, include the hash tag #dressatabletuesday so we can all enjoy our very own collection of pretty tables and accents.

Where did this idea come from?  Visit this post to get caught up.  Now let's see those tables!
