A Simple Table

I'm not sure why, but for me, decorating in January is the hardest to do.  I love the warm colors of the holidays and it always looks a bit bare afterwards.  So, I decided to change up my cabinet in the family/kitchen area.  I usually but out extra dishes but I decided to decorate with some Tuscan pottery and pictures of the family.
 I lightened up the table too; a simple runner with a woven vase and flowers.  It will be a lot easier at dinnertime.
 I was trying to work with what I already had on hand without buying anything new.
We have so much going on right now.  We are in the process of getting granite for the kitchen.  I never realized how many decisions were involved...sinks, facets, dishwashers.  Also, I'm planning for Ethan's birthday party and making the centerpieces for my mother-in-laws Relay For Life Event.  Busy, but very grateful and happy to do it.  Have a great week!


  1. I think it looks just lovely, Dani! I like to bring back plenty of color to my home after Christmas, and keep them around until early Spring. That's when I tone things down and lighten things up. Even then, I still have a lot of color going on!

  2. So beautiful! You may need to come decorate my house! haha Your house looks so perfectly put together! Totally jealous!
