I set our dinner table every night and I usually like to use dishes that will match our meal. I love to mix textures and use different colors and layer plates. As soon as fall comes, I'll be lighting our candles and fire place again which just creates a wonderful mood. Brian and Nick are totally use to this way of eating as our my other kids and they also know that a holiday or birthday calls for a "tablescape". I'm going to work on using more cloth napkins and table cloths as that just creates a whole new ambiance. Meals just don't taste good on paper or plastic.
