Sweet Stuff: Set the Table!

Sweet Stuff: Set the Table!

Now I’m on a role with resolutions… look out! Here’s why I like them, as a parent: it gives a new way to tell my kids to do things they don’t want to do. “Dirty laundry goes in the hamper. It’s a New Year’s resolution!” I know, I know, it’s going to get tired pretty quick but let me just ride for a couple of weeks, okay? I’ve been trying to get the kids to set the table for dinner and it’s going…. so so. Julian likes it but can only be trusted with forks and napkins and Esme, who could handle the rest keeps telling me, “No thanks.” But I’m not giving up. Being part of meal prep doesn’t have to just mean stirring and chopping after all. I think some bright new pieces for our table might help. I’m trying to break out of my white on white tabletop habit. Because, let’s face it, the white linens that I loved in my pre-kid days are a splattered mess now. I snapped up some cheery polka-dotted napkins at West Elm and I’m loving these freshly patterned place mats. And they’re completely unbreakable so putting them on the table is going to be Julian’s new chore! $17 for a set of 2 at westelm.com.
