let's talk about family dinners.
we don't make mealtime as much of a big deal as it should be, as i always thought it would be. with fish's crazy hours, we're only home as a family during dinnertime maybe half of the week. maybe.
also, i'll take some blame: i'm a terrible cook. sometimes my meals turn out edible. sometimes not. i just don't get excited about cooking like i do about crafting.
however! with the brand new dining table fish is building us, i am absolutely going to make family meal time a priority and in order to do that......we need placemats. not what you were expecting, right? but, i want to protect what fish has been working so hard on. ...also, i probably need to take some cooking lessons.
in case you've forgotten, this is our dining room, with screamingly bright yellow polka-dot walls:
i was originally thinking of getting white placemats, but that's not very practical with a toddler and a baby-to-be. also, our dishes are white. so maybe more of a natural vibe? or something to pull in some of the yellow on the walls?
here's some that i've come up with so far:
any other placemats you think i should check out?
also...i'd love tips on making family meals a regular occurrence!
