Any meal deserves to be treated with the respect it needs, so decorate your table accordingly!
The kitchen table is often more than a place to simply eat. It’s the place that gathers together all the family and part of the beautiful moments shared with you friends and the loved ones. That’s why it deserves some special arrangements. Lacking inspiration? No worries, we’re here with some advice on decorating the kitchen table.

1. Day to day. Many people tend to get quite lazy if we were to be sincere, and ignore the fact that the table needs some decorations even if you don’t have guests. Get to work and bring some magic to every meal by choosing a plain, but stylish vase with flowers, for instance. Ordinary flowers with just a little odor are recommended, since some that are powerfully scented can be disturbing while you’re eating. Chamomile, sunflower and tulips are great ideas, but it depends on your own personal taste in the end.
2. Candles. Candles are the universal and classic decoration for any table. You cannot fail with these, whether they are for a party or simply for a romantic dinner for you and your partner. However, there are lots of options that can make your table decorated with candles look amazing, if only you use your creativity! Try placing candles in glasses for an extra touch, or in special candleholders if you want a more elegant atmosphere. Some people like to hang them with strings from the ceiling and make them seem like they float, while others choose extremely long glasses for this purpose.

3. Flowers again. Yes, we already talked about vases, but there are other ways you can use flowers when decorating the kitchen table too. For instance, you can use only the petals to spread them around. Use differently colored flowers for a more jolly effect or for a party instead of confetti there. Branches and leaves can also be used to create a more natural atmosphere, especially if you have a country style design in the kitchen. You can complete a flower decoration by using a table cloth that has similar patterns and prints, to make a harmonious décor.
4. Mirrors. This is another great idea you can take advantage of when decorating the kitchen table. If you have a flower or natural arrangement already placed there, a mirror underneath it can be a great enhancer of the effect. If you don’t want to use a full mirror on that, break it and use the shards (careful not to cut yourself though!) or you can buy smaller mirror glasses from the stores. The best part about using mirrors is the fact that they also reflect light and make the room more vivid. You can even play around with mirrors placed in different parts of the room so that they will reflect the sun rays and take advantage of the natural light all day long!
