Through Adorn the Table, I hope to inspire you to create a welcoming, budget-friendly, table setting for your next gathering.
Hi! I’m Nicole, and I’m SO glad you are visiting my site! I created Adorn the Table because I want you to discover how easy and budget-friendly setting a beautiful table can be.
When I moved out on my own I had a small kitchen table. Often it would become a dumping ground for books, mail, piles of stuff – you name it. It made my whole space look cluttered and unattractive. My table wasn’t serving its intended purpose; a place to sit and eat. Instead, it was a place I wanted to avoid.
Then I discovered the power of table linens! By just putting an attractive tablecloth on my table, it stopped becoming a dumping ground, and in turn, gave the whole space a new life. It was now a welcoming space!
I also realized that swapping out a tablecloth, or placemats was such an easy way to change the look/feel of my tiny kitchen/dining area, which in turn would change my mood. Amazing how linens can do that!
At the same time, I didn’t want to spend a crazy amount of money on trendy accessories that would take up a lot of valuable space in my small place. So, I started DIYing and decorating my table settings with my own creations. From that my passion was born.
Now as a wife/mom, I switch out my tablecloths regularly; especially for a holiday or when the seasons change. They give the space new life and excitement. Plus, an attractive tablescape prevents my table from becoming a dumping ground for piles of paper. It invites my friends and family into the kitchen/dining room and gather around the table.
Sometimes you just need a little “spark” to get your ideas moving. Adorn the Table was created to help you find inspiration and resources for your tablescapes. I invite you to check out the various posts for ideas for your next gathering. And if the ideas just aren’t flowing, feel free to copy what I have provided. Just give me a little of the credit (lol)!
Enjoy your next gathering!
