Happy Friday! I’m so glad it’s the weekend! It’s going to be a fun one full of birthday parties and family time!
I hear people talk all the time about how much good it does them to make their bed every day. They say it makes their entire house feel neat and clean and helps them feel accomplished. Are you in the made bed club, too?
I was in the made bed club at our old house, because our bedroom was right off the living room and garage entrance, so I passed it a million times a day. However, in our current home, our room is tucked away and never seen, so I’ve totally slacked on the bed making. #confessions
BUT, there is one thing that I always do that gives me that freshly made bed feeling–I pretty up the dining room table. I try super hard to keep it cleared off and decorated. I keep the decor really simple because we eat at this table three times a day and I don’t like having to take decorations off and on. But, keeping it neat and pretty helps me feel like at least one room in the house is clean!
I’m always playing with different centerpieces and am slightly obsessed with table runners. I love that I can leave a table runner on all the time without us getting food all over it and I can spray/wipe the table down without moving the decor.
I’ve used a variety of things for centerpieces from pretty sea glass jugs, a woven fruit basket, a pitcher of flowers, etc. I recently found this woven tray at Target and absolutely LOVE how it looks on the table combined with a pitcher of flowers! Bonus points for being able to toss in the salt and pepper shakers and extra napkins!
I may not be able to make it into the made bed club, but that’s ok. I’ll just start my own clean table club and our membership cards will be way cooler. 😉
Do you have any household tasks that you must do to keep your house feeling clean? Ya know… besides actually cleaning? Ha! What are your favorite table centerpieces?
To see more centerpieces, check out my project gallery! This fall one and this Christmas one are some of my favorite super simple ones! I can’t wait to get to put them out in the coming months!
