Set a Pretty Table!

Do you ever do anything fancy, just because?
Last week I set a pretty table for dinner...
I used our regular dishes, but I set them all out and lit some candles...
 The kids wanted to know what the special occasion was?  There was not a special occasion, just a pretty table. 
They were excited anyway.

 That night our hamburgers tasted magical, we all talked about our day and we worked on using good manners.
Sometimes it is fun to make it fabulous ~Just Because~.
Do something unexpected to make your daily routine a little brighter! 
Join us at Cielo's show off your cottage Monday
 Have a lovely and blessed day!


  1. Your table looks so lovely. Your regular dishes are gorgeous! I bet it did make having hamburgers feel so special. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Olivia, My! I have never seen rose dishes like these. These are breathtaking! I love them. Thank you for posting your pictures so we all can see them. *hugs*

  3. Olivia, your table is lovely and your china is gorgeous! Funny how a pretty table makes everything taste better and the conversation sweeter. Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day.


  4. I always hear people say that you shouldn't save your good china, but use it everyday. Same with linens and even your best Sunday dress. Good on you for making a 'regular' day a 'special' day and not waiting for a special occasion.

  5. Those are your regular dishes! Wow, they are gorgous...I wish I had some pretty rose dishes like that for regular use :) It's always nice to once in a while do something "just because". Hope you have a wonderful week :)

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  6. Hi Olivia,
    Yes indeed, it's nice to set a pretty table just because! and yours is truly divine! really pretty.How sweet of kids to notice..and to enjoy what you had done for the family to make dinner a more festive time to spend together.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  7. Great idea, don´t need to have a special occasion to set a lovely tablescape!

  8. Isn't it funny how kids respond to lovely thing, sugar? I think they actually like a bit of pomp!

  9. Isn't it great to make our families feel special like that, instead of always saving it for guests? Very pretty table there my friend!
    Blessings and hugs,

  10. Very lovely. I agree, make life a special occasion, and show your family THEY are special too!

  11. Olivia, this is very pretty. I love your tablecloth and dishes.


Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
