It’s spring, and the crisp autumn winds have already turned the once dull air into an invigorating experience. Gone are the days when cold food was served at the end of the meal. No, in today’s modern world, good food is served prior to that final bite. And it’s all happening because of one person – you!
No matter how much I love my sweet food, I know that my lifestyle is different from most of you. The traditional dining room decor of our family used to be quite traditional too. But then, I started changing things around… and things got not so traditional anymore. In fact, I’d say that my lifestyle is completely modernized – and I’m not the only one!
When you’re decorating your traditional dining room decor, there is one very important rule that you need to pay attention to: Lowliness. Yes, I know this might sound corny. But the truth is that if you don’t want your dinner table to look like a frozen pond, you have to make sure that everyone can communicate properly with each other. See, this is what makes traditional dining room decor so wonderful.
For example, we used to have two sets of cutlery, one for each member of the household. Each set was placed on the table’s left side. If someone wanted a plate, he would bring it over to his plate and then turn it over to show his neighbor who had just come over. Then, before we dined, everyone could say hello and goodbye (and sip a glass of wine if they wanted to). This worked great for us, until one day…
One Sunday morning, as we were eating our favorite breakfast, the conversation suddenly turned to traditional dining room decor. My husband spoke up and said, “I’ve been meaning to get you something…” I started to laugh, but he cut me off. “Nah, I’ve got it,” I said. “What? “, he asked.
“When did you get that table? “, I cried. My husband laughed and repeated, “When did you get that table? That looks exactly like the one I was sitting at last week! “, and he gave me a pat on the back.
That afternoon, as we were enjoying our second breakfast of the day, I felt a tugging on my sleeve. My usual chair was nowhere to be found, and I quickly realized that something had happened to the traditional dining room table. It was no longer the same, and it no longer fit. I quickly realized that something was seriously missing from my traditional dining room decor. I quickly pulled out the old table and informed my husband that I would need a new one.
He gave me a pretty good idea of what I needed to do, and off I went to find the perfect table for my traditional dining room decor. When I was finished, I felt like I had changed the history of my home. I was able to use that old table for another several years, and enjoy it to the fullest.
Is my traditional dining room decor hard to maintain? Actually, it really is not that difficult. For one thing, it is very easy to clean. Any materials that I use for traditional tables are relatively easy to wash and wipe down. With that being said, there are a few more things that need a bit more attention:
First, the place card holders that you hang on the walls should be cleaned on a regular basis. They collect a lot of dust and dirt, and are not always the nicest looking things in the house. However, by cleaning them regularly, you will make your traditional dining room decor last even longer.
Second, when I am dusting the table, I make sure to get everything off of it. While dusting, I use a vacuum. If I do not have one, I use my vacuum cleaner, but I make sure that I am wiping the table down all the same. This can prevent streaking from occurring on the table.
Last, another important tip to traditional dining room decor is to always remove your napkins before you dine. Napkins collect a lot of crumbs and food particles. If you do not have a special place to store your napkins after each meal, you will find them collecting crumbs on the floor after every meal. This is not only gross, but it is also bad for your carpet, which is especially bad if you have a traditional wooden table.
