I have a tiny kitchen, which also acts as a dining room for us. We don't really have a good space for a dining table at this point. But we have a cute little red enamel table that I think goes great in our old home.
I decided to set up an intimate table setting for just the two of us. I wanted to make a cute centerpiece, but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I had a bunch of leftover flowers from my first DIY and a few other "fall things" lying around, so I created a fall-ish table setting with centerpiece.
The centerpiece is glued to a foam placemat I bought forever ago that ended up being too big for our table. I cut it down and then hot glued all the parts and pieces together.
I also didn't have a great tablecloth or runner....so I used a throw blanket that was the perfect color. The dishes are our everyday fiestaware and a quick ribbon around napkins and I was done.
We don't often 'dress up' the table so after I photographed everything, we had dinner with the set up and it really was quite nice. I should do this more often.
Definitely check out all the other AMAZING table settings that are part of Dare to DIY - they are incredible!
