Three Simple Ideas For Your Farmhouse Dinner Table...

Hi Friends! We're enjoying some beautiful spring weather here in the Pacific Northwest... That, along with a visit from my husband's parents, helped motivate us to get the grill cleaned up for the season. Once we start using the grill again, it just seems like there are so many more options for dinner! 

As I was getting dinner ready, I thought of three little additions for the table that really help make it feel just a bit more "farmhouse" special. None of these are earth-shattering, but I thought I'd mention them in case you, like me, had forgotten about them over the fall and winter months...

1. Breadboards: I posted one of these images on Instagram, and a reader commented, "Why does bread always taste better when served on a breadboard?!" I'm not sure, but I'd have to agree! French baguettes, Rosemary bread, and sourdough rounds are some of our family's favorite types of bread.

2. Flowers: There is something so satisfying about going out to the garden and finding some fresh flowers, branches, greenery, and/or herbs. As you can see here, my "arrangement" was very simple, but we'll chalk it up to simple farmhouse charm... ;)

3. Oil and Vinegar: Is it because I'm trying to eat less bread that two of my tips are revolving around bread?! Probably. Anyway, giving family and/or guests the option of oil and vinegar, along with butter, for bread, makes things feel just a little more special. I keep my eye out for small white vintage plates, the perfect size for individual oil and vinegar servings.

What would you add to this list? As the weather gets better, how does your table, meals, and entertaining change? I'd love to hear your tips!!


And if you'd like to shop for small plates, breadboards, or pitchers for flowers, I've included a few affiliate links below for your convenience!

  12. It is also important that you consider where you will be buying from as far as the quality of the fabric and colours are concerned. When you have found the shop that you want to buy from, you can then sit down and compare the deals available with each other.

    Make sure that you consider all the things that you need when looking for the shop. Try to find out if they carry a variety of curtains so that you can compare prices and pick out the best deal for your money. Also make sure that they have a good reputation for service. You can find out if they are popular by checking the feedback section of their website. Also, it is important that you make sure that they offer you quality craftsmanship so that you do not have to worry about them breaking when you are travelling overseas.
