You probably think every once in a while that it would be quite lovely to make dinner time a real proper dinner – with the whole family coming together, sitting at a beautifully set table, having a conversation and spending some time together, instead of everyone watching Youtube in different corners of the house while gobbling on a plate. And yes it would be lovely! There’s a reason why communal eating is an age-old tradition. Yet in this modern day and age it’s just so tempting to put a tv show on, the idea of good table manners and quality together time tends to go out the window.
Thankfully we have several yearly occasions when it’s not a choice, but a must. So for this Easter we’ve decided to put the extra effort into making it special, festive and, of course, real pretty. We are going all out, taking on the art of napkin folding, natural marble egg dyeing, making a centerpiece out of moss and other forest goods then getting a bunch of flowers when that attempt fails miserably.
And maybe we’ll find ourselves enjoying it so much that we’ll catch the habit of dining together with intention more often.
