What's on the table?

Every so often, I get something in my head and I obsess about it. Right now, I've got dining table centerpieces in my head.

I am constantly changing my dining room table centerpiece. I think I keep doing this because I just can't seem to find the right look. So then I obsess & start searching dining rooms on the internet. Yep, your dining room too...chances are I've been there. LOL

Here are some images I've found while stalking searching.

Candles. Flowers. Vases. Big bowls. Seriously, someone needs to have a "What's on your dining room table?" blog party, so that I can be inspired! :D

So tell me because I'm very curious, what's on your dining room table?


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. I think that idea for a party is a good one Gina! I always have a problem with that too, I change it so often. Beautiful inspiration. I loved the plants on the cake stands one!

  2. Oh gosh, I do the same thing! I go on a spree of a certain something. I've been working on my ugly, tiny, outdated apartment kitchen...just buying little knick knacks and things to brighten it up since we can't change anything structure wise.

    I think you can NEVER go wrong with a chandelier in a dining room! That would be my starting point for sure! I think someone does a Tablescaping linky party but I'm not sure who.

  3. Right now on the kitchen table is a dried bouquet of red roses that the hubs gave me for mothers day. lol.

  4. Actually I just posted pictures of my dining room table in my most recent post. You can see it at .
    You can probably can get to it by clicking on my name on this post.

    I have a tablecloth that has blue and white plates on it. I have four different sizes of blue mason jars with geraniums in them.

  5. Don't tell anyone but right now LAUNDRY is on my dining room table! Shhhh!

    I love the pretty images you've shared!

  6. Gina, why don't you host it! I think it's a great idea. Right now, I have tons of rush rec packets for my daughter's sorority rush on my dining room table!!!

  7. I have the same problem! What to put on the table!! Right now there is a big space of nothing!!! Thanks for the inspiration photos though. Maybe I will find the right thing after takin another peek at your ideas.

  8. Gina what a great party idea!! Loved all the inspiration photos. On my dining room table I have a white cake stand and cloche with faux pears and I don't change it to often. Martina

  9. Gina- I'm embarassed to say ... a stack of junk is on my table at the moment! I'm sorting and did not finish yet.
    I like to keep my table seasonal. I also love soup tureens for florals.
    Is your table round, rectangular, oval? I say just go with what you love!
    Blessings, L

  10. Well, right now there is an hp printer, laptop and camera.LOL I so have a vase of purple lilacs though in the center, this is why I wanted a desk for the bedroom!

    Loved the pictures Gina!

  11. I obsess over the table too, seems like it should be simple. It has to be something that is easy to take off as I entertain a lot and don't want to take off 10 things and figure out where to sit them while we eat. I have a round tray that I did mosaic on and a vase with fake flowers, not to exciting.


  12. Good idea Gina...And I think you would make the perfect hostess for such party...Yay! Wouldn't that be fun? Anyways, I have a big white fruit bowl, a wire frame pear and a rose candle holder on my dining room table...Not sure what direction I want to go yet so I have all three for inspiration...But nothing yet :-S

    Much love,
